Here are more links to articles about Roxette’s comeback:
Collected from Roxetteforum.com
There’s a big interview with Per on www.gessle.com, mainly about the Party Crasher tour experiences. The band members promised each other to let this tour literary “never end”. Per will fly to NYC to get an US release for the album.
Today I asked Per on twitter if Roxette aim for a whole album or just some tracks. He responded “2 tracks. that’s it for now.” Not exactly the answer I dreamed of! But we’ll see how it continues. Wonder how these songs will be released…
Update: The interview was moved to The Daily Roxette.
A Dutch fan, Joost, recorded Per Gessle’s Amsterdam gig from the 6th of May with Marie Fredriksson as a special guest and prepared a wonderful cover for this bootleg. The Brazilian Roxette site published an mp3 compressed rip of the recording which you can download following the link below:

In an interview with dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad Per and Marie reveal a bit more about Roxette’s future plans beside NOTP.
Now after the comeback announcement there are plenty of offers for concerts and tours, but Marie feels still unable to do a complete Roxette tour. One step at a time. Despite this limitations Per thinks everything they do now is unexpected fun. He learned a lot from Marie’s story and changed his focus from career and money to the best possible entertainment. His recent solo tour already went into that direction.
When asked about a new album, Per reveals that they plan to go into the studio in the autumn. Both look forward to spend a lot of time with each other again, to be creative. If this studio time leads to good new songs they will be released. If they fail, the songs will never be mentioned again…

So I’m glad they aim for more than some mediocre filler tracks! They want to reach the best Roxette standards again. And I got a feeling, they will succeed! Marie and Per seem to have some hunger again. How about you?
Especially Swedish press published some nice articles about last night’s big surprise in Amsterdam. Some excerpts:
Per about Marie’s reaction afterwards: “She was completely overwhelmed by the response we got. The audience had a big smile on their faces and the whole room had goosebumps”.
There’s also rumours about another performance by Marie in Stockholm, but it’s not decided yet. Join here, if you want to get Marie to conquer the stage in Stockholm!
Furthermore, as we learned before, Marie and Per are going to record new songs in autumn (take your time guys, we want GOOD songs, please no more OW if possible) but it’s not sure how and when they are going to be released.
What could make this fantastic day perfect? A rox-historical moment on video! Roxette back on stage together!!! 😀
Judith says: I tell you, you will cry!!!
Sascha says: Really hard not to look like crazy at work these days! 😛
Per at twitter:
“Busy day today in Amsterdam. Dutch media, photosessions, Swedish media. Soundcheck with Marie F in 30 min. Voila!”
“Great press reception in Antwerp yesterday re NOTP. The world seems ready!!!”
The latest from Magnus:

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.
