The latest from Magnus:

German TV channel ZDF will have a report about Roxette’s comeback at NOTP in tomorrows “Leute Heute” show! Check it out: May 6, 5:45 pm CET. Normally the shows appear online at ZDF Mediathek afterwards.
Update: The report is now available at ZDF Mediathek! Choose your media play and klick “Übernehmen”.
As you’d guess they tell the story we already know, but feature some interview scenes from the press conference as well.
Impressions she got:
– The HR3 reporter was the first to interview Roxette after the announcement, to warm them up for two following TV interviews.
– Marie looked beautiful but at the same time you can tell she was seriously ill. She needs a bit of help for stairs etc.
– She often leaned on Per for comfort, was rather silent but radiated happiness.
– The most moving interview the reporter ever did.
– Per promised new songs, joked to write them in the waiting times on tour.
– Roxette will play five songs at NOTP.
– Marie is glad to make a slow way back to the stage this way.
You can listen to this report (in german) at the station’s website: HR3
As we heard yesterday Marie Fredriksson is going to be on stage with Per Gessle in Amsterdam tomorrow. But a lot of people already got tickets for the Stockholm show and expected Marie to show up there.
Now it doesn’t really look like that and with this group we want her to know that we want to see her in Stockholm as well. Now that Roxette are back and a great fall is to come we want to get excited already! So it’s kind of a petition to tell Marie that we want her and we need her and we love her. And that we love Roxette, of course.
Let us show our support and bring Marie on stage in Stockholm, too! For that reason I opened a new group in Facebook called “Marie: Join Per on stage in Stockholm, too”.
Join and tell your friends!
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.”

I don’t know how you out there are feeling, but I feel like a teenager again. Ok, maybe not THAT extreme, but.. couldn’t sleep last night, can’t wait until tomorrow and Wednesday. I think I will cry. I think I would even cry now just with the thought…
Just had to get this out.
