Roxette to play the last concert of 2011 in Russia

SAV Entertainment, a company that was responsible e.g. for organizing two Russian Roxette shows in 2010, has just announced that Roxette is due to perform in Moscow on December 1st this year. The concert will take place in Crocus City Hall, a multipurpose two-level concert hall that can accommodate over 6,000 people. It is said to be the closing show for this year’s tour.

Thanks to Evgeny Perekopskiy for this information.

Note: we’ve heard more than once hints that the tour should go on in 2012. Of course, no details are available, so we base these speculations on some statements done by Per and Marie, like that the tour lasts one year, that Per mentioned Halmstad may be in the plan “next year”. And, of course, that they might play in the USA.

Misc

In one of the videos posted by Per Gessle we can see Christoffer Lundquist reading the lyrics of Stars. Will the song be played later on?

This song was already performed live during the Room Service tour in 2001 in a very nice and different version than the one in the album. Here taken from the showcase in Barcelona.

Secret Roxette trip to Russia

As Evgeny Perekopskiy posted on his Facebook account today, Roxette – including the band with Clarence Öfwerman, Christoffer Lundquist, Pelle Alsing and Magnus Börjeson – have been in Moscow during the last days. They arrived on December 9th in the evening and flew back to Stockholm this morning.
So far, nobody knows why they have been there and what they did. So speculations started that Roxette either did a video or photo shoot or came to Moscow for some TV show recording, maybe even some New Year’s Eve show.

Back from Moscow Per Gessle lets us know what the trip was about:

Just got home from a couple of dayz (and nights) in jolly Moscow. Great TV-show, superb crowd. Hey you Russian ppl, see ya again in March!

Fan stories

BY VASSILIY:

After Joyride (if my memory runs perfect) guys said “Moscow, thank you!” and left the stage. Marie was near the mic, smiling and looking at happy crowd, and when she looked back she saw no one on the stage except her ) She hesitated. Said ” You are great!”, turned back looking for someone to re-appear on the stage, but there was still no one. Then a guy appeared and accompanied her out. Since the croud was crying “Marie, Marie” and Marie herself performed this awkward moment with a little bit of humour, it all looked sweet ))

Review by kp.ru | ruf.ru:

Their songs are natural, like air, for now three generations of Russians. I’ve never seen such an unanimous warm welcome to foreign artists by the metropolitan audience. The journey into joy succeeded!

Trivia

New interview: “Maybe we’ll tour in Europe, South America and Canada”

And there’s yet another Per interview from Russia! Some interesting bits:

– Roxette aims to tour in Europe, South America and Canada.
– They already recorded a dozen tracks and should be finished in a few weeks.
– Per thinks Marie recovered so well not least thanks to the love for music and desire to sing.

Russian interview with Per

In advance of Roxette’s 2 upcoming concerts in Russia, TRUD did an interview with Per. He speaks about the comeback, the new album, Roxette’s breakthrough and the future of the music business.

About the album:

Most of the work is actually done. This is a very strong album. Some very, very good ballad for Marie and a few fast songs. We want to sing much together. To avoid: this song Marie, and this song Per. Just like in our early songs like «Paint», «Dressed For Success» or «The Look», where we sing together.
