Comment from Per Gessle
Great gig last night at The Globe in Stockholm! Flying out the big continent in the West this weekend! Hallelujah!
Tomorrow is the day of the very last (confirmed) concert of Roxette in Europe during the World Tour 2011-2012. It will be a special 45-minute performance at the Oriflame’s anniversary conference at Globen in Stockholm. Rumour has it that the whole welcome rally will be broadcasted online tomorrow.

Here are two promotional clips – with Roxette’s “It’s possible” as the tune in the background.

Last September we revealed that Roxette are set to play at Globen in Stockholm this summer (August 2012) on the special anniversary corporate event organized by the Swedish company Oriflame. In the beginning of May this year it turned out that Russian edition of “Travelling” does not include the very first international single “It’s possible” in both versions.
You may ask how those two things go together? Well, it turns out that Russian chapter of Oriflame claims that Roxette have written a special song for them. What’s its name? Yes, you’re right – “It’s possible”! In the end of May the 9th edition of the Oriflame magazine will be released together with a special bonus CD – including 11 Roxette hits and a new track called “It’s possible”. At this point we only know this will be released in Russia and will cost 99 rubles (ca USD 3.5). The artwork for both the cover and CD discs is shown above this text.
The tracklist for the album:
01. It’s Possible
02. It must have been love (Live in St. Petersburg)
03. Wish I could fly
04. How do you do! (Live in Stavanger)
05. Dangerous (Live in Stavanger)
06. Reveal (Attic Remix)
07. Speak to me (Bassflow Remake)
08. Dressed for success (Live in St. Petersburg)
09. Sleeping in my car (Live in Stavanger)
10. Real Sugar
11. Milk and Toast and Honey
12. Listen to your heart (Live in St. Petersburg)
Thanks to Evgeny Perekopskiy for sharing this news.
Yesterday Per Gessle was interviewed on the Nordic Rox programme and he mentioned about the new album possibly out spring 2012. He mentioned places where Roxette have done recordings: Dubai, South Africa, Argentina, Russia etc. He also said they were planning to go back to South America next year. So our little rumour is getting closer to be confirmed. It seems like this tour gets bigger and bigger with everyday. Few weeks ago we were informed about 120 shows in total – now the number increased with over 30 concerts!
It looks like it’s going be about 150 – 160 shows. And we’ve done 53. 100 is left.
Additionally, at the Russian Oriflame company internal meeting, it was revealed that Roxette will play in Stockholm next August. The concert will take place in the Globen as part of Oriflame’s Gold Conference 2012 event. It seems like it will be a full-length concert. You can watch an insider presentation from Russia here.
