Thanks to esperominombre for making these two clips.
After Erik Linder, Sweden’s Got Talent finalist, who has recorded two covers of Marie’s songs “Tro” and “Ännu doftar kärlek” and one Per’s – “Tycker om när du tar på mej” on his debut album “Inifrån”, another artist performed interesting version of Marie’s hit single – this time 1985’s “Efter stormen”. It was the popular Swedish dansband Scotts. You can listen to theirs live version recorded by marita213 on Stora Torg in Kristianstad on June 5th.
Thanks to Evgeny and Lionel.
Updated on June 22: Two links for ÄDK and TONDTPM added.

2 tracks from Warsaw
2 tracks from Copenhagen
2 tracks from Stockholm 1
2 tracks from Stockholm 2
1 track from Munich
1 track from Halmstad
In bold: these songs will be missing on the CD version
So now we know that there won’t be any Roxette live songs on this album and it’s very probable that three songs from London show will be the same as these from Sirius programme. The same will probably happen with Stockholm 1 which will be on DVD.
The forthcoming release from European Party Crasher Tour will be called “Gessle over Europe” and it will include live CD plus Stockholm gig on DVD, videos and documentaries as bonus. The double vinyl album will have 3 or 4 extra tracks compared to the CD due to technical reasons. CD/DVD will be released in the end of the summer and the LP edition somewhere in September.
Thanks to tevensso (@ TDR) we also got to know that “Dressed for success” will be from Cologne gig. This means that the city order given by Per (Cologne, London, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Stockholm#2, Warsaw, Halmstad, Munich) wasn’t accidental at all.
Per posted a message on Twitter in which he informed which cities will be included in the Party Crasher live LP/CD. Thanks to that we know that some live songs from Cologne, London, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Stockholm#2, Warsaw, Halmstad and Munich will be released.
According to Sydsvenskan’s article and web report, Christoffer Lundqvist, the man behind Per Gessle’s latest albums, is currently working on a new cd with Mulle kindergarten’s children’s choir from Lund in Scania. All lyrics were written by children themselves and the album will be released just before Christmas. All profits will be transferred to help “Sponsor a child” organisation in Peru.
On the other hand, Per has informed us today that Christoffer is busy mixing the live double LP and the DVD (Live from Stockholm). It will be two different things, so most likely there will not be any song from May 9th on the live album.
Thanks to Lionel for information.
Arnaldo Mariano Suarez from Argentina has prepared a new artwork for Sirius broadcasting of Per Gessle’s London gig. Thanks a lot.
After the bootleg from Amsterdam and the excellent Nordic Rox London gig we get a new concert from Party Crasher Tour. This time is audio recording from beautful Prague at Lucerna Hall on April 23rd, 2009.
Yeeehaaa! What a night! What a show! The Prague-gig became a memory we will never forget! Beautiful hall (Bowie and Kraftwerk have been there!!!) and we certainly rocked our asses off together with the mighty crowd. Thanx for singing along and making us sweat!!!! See ya next time, dear Prague!!!!!!
Thanks to Martina Letochova and Romanian fans at ROxette.ro.
