Fan stories

Gabba77: May the devil take Google Translate – and all of you guys would not had read these horrible reviews…
But I was there and I must say that I was really surprised about the big interest for the concert. I had thought that there would probably be 10-15 hardcore fans who would insist on being in the front row and then a lot of curious people who would like just to be there to see this famous duo Roxette.
But 2 hours before the concert I realized I was wrong. There were a lot of fans. People from Germany, Sweden, England, Argentina, Peru and Denmark of course. But not only the fans – everybody wanted a place up front.
It also really surprised me that people seemed to know all the lyrics. I stood among some people with an age of about 20 years – (They were not what we call fans.) They had hardly learned to speak as Joyride was released. But they sang along on all the songs – not only Joyride, LTYH, The Look & IMHBL that you hear on the radio from time to time. But they also knew the lyrics of songs like Fading Like A Flower & Dangerous which you never hear on the radio here.
I had never dreamt that so many people with a Roxette passion were hiding here in Denmark. What a nice surprice!
The reviwer from writes that he has been writing several hundreds of music reviews during the last ten years and he has never before experienced such an enthusiastic audience as met Roxette at Smukfest.
It is a big shame that it seems that nobody recorded the moment that Roxette entered the stage and started playing Dressed For Success – it simply does not get any bigger!
What a thrill, what blessing what a big moment – Hallelujah!

New Roxette Interview with Per in Smukfest magazine

A special B.T. magazine edition about the Smukfest festival in Skanderborg, Denmark features an interview with Per about Roxette’s upcoming show and the album, as well as the biggest memories from the past. He states again that they aim for a spontaneous “power pop” show without computers in the background. For the album the goal is a “really, really good, classic Roxette” sound – including power ballads where Marie can shine. Check it out if you understand Danish (or use a translator)!
