I thought about posting it here and was doubtful. But in the end we aren’t a news page and some bits and pieces about nothing here and then can be funny, too. I just found a young woman’s blog who is writing about Bruce Springsteen’s concert and Per Gessle’s umbrella. Even if it’s only two sentences, enjoy: Behindblueeyes

Per Gessle’s “The Party Pleaser” is “utmanare” (something like challenger, or candidate to enter the list) this week in P4’s Svensktoppen. Swedish contestant at Eurovision Song Contest Malena is #1 this week.
There’s a big interview with Per on www.gessle.com, mainly about the Party Crasher tour experiences. The band members promised each other to let this tour literary “never end”. Per will fly to NYC to get an US release for the album.
Today I asked Per on twitter if Roxette aim for a whole album or just some tracks. He responded “2 tracks. that’s it for now.” Not exactly the answer I dreamed of! But we’ll see how it continues. Wonder how these songs will be released…
Update: The interview was moved to The Daily Roxette.
According to Per Gessle, the Party Crasher-tour DVD will be released at the end of summer all over Europe and contain about 100 home videos. Per also tells that several live tapes from European shows exist and they (Christoffer and Per) are listening to them these days. Furthermore the audio recordings are supposed to come as a live CD in a package with the DVD.
A Dutch fan, Joost, recorded Per Gessle’s Amsterdam gig from the 6th of May with Marie Fredriksson as a special guest and prepared a wonderful cover for this bootleg. The Brazilian Roxette site published an mp3 compressed rip of the recording which you can download following the link below:

What could make this fantastic day perfect? A rox-historical moment on video! Roxette back on stage together!!! 😀
Judith says: I tell you, you will cry!!!
Sascha says: Really hard not to look like crazy at work these days! 😛
Per at twitter:
“Busy day today in Amsterdam. Dutch media, photosessions, Swedish media. Soundcheck with Marie F in 30 min. Voila!”
“Great press reception in Antwerp yesterday re NOTP. The world seems ready!!!”
The latest from Magnus:
“Soundcheck with Marie was super!”
“In Amsterdam. Tonight will be special.”
Finally confirmed: Roxette are back. Marie Fredriksson will perform with Per Gessle on his concert in Amsterdam on wednesday.
….“Tomorrow, at an official press conference in Belgium, they will announce that Marie has recovered from the illness that forced them to cancel their scheduled appearance in 2002. Seven years later, Roxette will finally make good on that previous commitment and perform at this year’s series of Night of the Proms concerts to be held in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands later this year.”

After adding “Sleeping in my car” to the playlist on Party crasher tour’s Cologne show (April 27th), now was a high time for Son of a plumber’s single – “Hey Mr DJ (Won’t you play another love song)” in Gent, Belgium (May 2nd). According to Per at gessle.com, the whole show was a blast with many international fans from Spain and Argentina in the audience.
The CD won’t be released by EMI but Sony. “Miracles do happen!” told Per via Twitter. More at TDR
