The concert was initially scheduled in a smaller venue and was moved to Palau Sant Jordi around Summer due to the huge demand (and that, with zero publicity about the concert!). I however don’t know official numbers, I would say about 6,000?
“Soul Deep” and “Watercolours in the Rain” were dropped off the setlist again.
Fans organised to hold printed A4 sheets with the word “TACK!” on it (thanks Claudia!) when Roxette came back to play “Spending my time”, action which left all of them on stage speechless.
Christoffer played the FC Barcelona hymn as intro for Joyride and got everybody (or at least 90%) to sing the song along… Barça, Barça, Barça! The big surprise was to come though, Marie appeared on stage wearing FC Barcelona t-shirt with #10, Messi. Which made the Barcelonistas go crazy.
This time the famous Spanish fans wore viking helmets, which the band ended up wearing during “Church of your Heart”.
