World Tour 2011: Warsaw Audio Bootleg

After over a year of waiting (and we all know that Roxette fans CAN actually wait very long for things to happen) we are finally very close to releasing the video bootleg from the Warsaw 2011 concert at the Torwar Hall. At this point we are only releasig the audio recordig which is a great preview what you will be able to see in a great quality pretty soon. Big hand for Blanka Pentela for doing amazingly nice artwork and Damian Kaplita for recording the show on his proff camera.

Enjoy & get ready for even more in the coming weeks – from both Warsaw 2011 and Gdansk/Sopot 2012. In both audio and picture. Polish fans like to please you all 😉

The biggest Roxette concert this year in Cluj-Napoca? The stage is being built

We got update from Per Gessle himself:

Nah, tomorrow will be around 15000 ppl. But hey, that’s a lot of Rox-heads!!!!!! It’s gonna be a gas!

…and yet another comment

just heard almost 20000 tcts sold….

…and one more…

Landed in Cluj, Hey, it’s proper summertime here! We like that! Hi to everyone waiting at the airport + the hotel, sorry – no signing or pix this late. See y’all tomorrow. Looks like it’s gonna be big bigger biggest. 20-25000????

According to various sources the Cluj-Napoca stadium is ready for 30,000 people during the Roxette’s concert on Thursday, July 19. The ticket sale is good with Golden Circle tickets being sold out for few weeks now. It will be the second Roxette concert ever in Romania and it will be probably one the biggest crowds Roxette have had on this 2011-2012 tour. Will it beat last year’s Copenhagen concert at Tivoli?

Here below you can see the Roxette stage being built.

Romania gets ready for Roxette’s visit with interviews

Here are links to some interviews published today in Romanian websites and newspapers:

MagicFM (Romanian, use google translator)

Clujlife.com (English)

Most important from both is that he confirms there will be “more touring, more recording, more smiles!“, that they will “start again pretty soon. With the feedback we’re getting from Planet Earth, how can we ever stop?“. He doesn’t confirm with whom the touring and recording will be though 🙂

News about the upcoming Roxette biography

As revealed some months ago, Swedish author Sven Lindström (“Att vara Per Gessle” in 2007) is preparing a new biography about Roxette. An interview with “Sydsvenskan” now confirmed the ongoing work. He visited Roxette at the South American tour and is now waiting for more interviews to complete the book for a likely release in 2013. Sven about the project:

It’s a pretty unlikely story, both about how they broke through, and how they came back a few years ago. There will also be an insight into the fans’ relationship to the band.

It is a dramatic story that this band has been through, and I think it will be quite surprising when you see the big picture. They have done a trip like no band in Sweden have done.

World Tour 2012: Birmingham Audio Bootleg

Torsten Dettlaff published on his website a high quality recording of the Birmingham Roxette concer that took place on July 6, 2012.

He decided to record it with a portable DR-100 recorder. The results are actually pretty good – as he write on the website. You will find a download link there as well. Unfortunately, “Dressed for success” is sadly missing.
