Yahoo in its entertaiment section used four Reuters’ photos of Roxette from New Wave Festival 2009 taken by Ints Kalnin from Latvian Entertaiment photo agency. One more photography from yesterday’s opening night was found on Reuters website.
One of these pictures was used in Expressen’s article about Roxette’s comeback, but in a little different edit.

The first video of Roxette’s performance at the New Wave Festival in Jurmala is online. The quality is rather poor but still good enough to tell that both Marie and Per obviously had some fun together! When Marie arrived in Riga she told the TV crews that she wants to “have fun”. You can see that HERE, fast forward to minute 27. According to several websites they played four songs – Listen to your heart, It must have been love, The Look and Joyride and it seems that at least Joyride was either live or recently new recorded as it sounded different to the album version from 1991.
Three TV-stations are going to broadcast the opening night of New Wave Festival from Jurmala in Latvia.

The Daily Roxette got hold of Per just before leaving for Latvia and the New Wave festival where Roxette will perform “for real” for the first time in 8 years tomorrow. Per says they are bringing C&C – Christoffer and Clarence on bass and keyboards respectively, Pelle Alsing on drums and Jonas Isacsson on guitar. Per has super-charged his Gretsch this time.
It seems Roxette will play the same five songs as on the Night of the Proms; “Wish I Could Fly,” “The Look,” “Joyride,” “It Must Have Been Love” and “Listen to Your Heart.”

It can sound a little bit of silly (really?) in these days, but it’s worth a try at least. Danyela Etchart from Brazil sent us her blog entry. Read it, think over it and pass on.
What is ROXETTE ATTACK 2009 SUDAMERICA?
A project created by Roxette Fans in South America (“Sudamerica” in Spanish).
1. Bring back Roxette to the media;
2. Make contacts between business companies and Live Nation to bring back Roxette to do concerts in South America.
Roxette Brazil created a petition to bring Per and his band to Brazil during the Party Crasher Tour. Many signatures after and some words from Per & his band, the things have slowed down here in Brazil and Bianca & Alexandre contacted me to shake it a little bit!
As I had to travel to Uruguay, I took this opportunity nox to meet Rosina (a “crazy fan” just like me that since EHM Tour has been travelling to Europe!). We contacted Ezequiel from Argentina and still looking for someone to represent Chile.

These items are based on Roxette Hits and they will be available for download very soon – I’m just finishing the artwork and also trying to contact with some fans that offer theirs help to exchange ideas!! (Gracias Emilio G.! I’ll contact you soon!)

One of the most creative, incredible and craziest fans in the rox-world, Danyela Etchart from Porto Alegre in Brazil has started her own blog-site “En händig blog” (Handy blog) which is written both in Portuguese and English. There are many pictures, stories and jokes from her long and amazing trips to Sweden, gigs she was on, all the meetings with Per she had and even Swedish press-articles about her! So if you want to join the unpredictable and extreme joyride, just visit her website. And yes, Dany’s coming to Europe for “Night of the proms”!
