20 tour dates for 2016?

Per says in the Kappahl interview that the plan is to go on with the tour until 2016 (asDSC00278 he already mentioned many times before, and that would be the meaning behind the whole XXX tour, as Roxette turns 30 in 2016!).

Now he revealed that Roxette plans to do about 80 dates until 2016. If you count the dates until Drammen (Norway) on August 22, that makes up to 61 dates. Which means about 20 would be left to be announced / planned. And this raises lots of questions:

Will these dates be in 2016 only? Will there be more in 2015? Where will it take Roxette to? South Africa? South America? North America? Some more Europe / Sweden to celebrate the 30th anniversary “home”? Lots of questions for our never-resting minds!

What we know for sure is that fans are longing to see more of Roxette live, both those who have been to (many) shows since the tour started and those who haven’t seen Roxette since at least 2012. And that The Look 2015 is awesome. And that we cannot wait until the new album is out! And that we already need the tour dates for 2016.

Changes in the 2011 World Tour schedule

According to the chilean newspaper La Tercera, the concert promoter T4F announced that the concert in Santiago de Chile, which was supposed to take place on April 10th, has been moved to April 9th. The location stays the same, Movistar Arena. The reasons for the change “are just a rescheduling of the tour in order to offer the best day (of the week, now a Saturday) for the concert.”

Tickets will go on sale on December 11th via Ticketmaster, however, an exclusive pre-sale for members of Zona Entel started on Friday and will last until 10th. Ticket prices range $18.000 – $50.000 chilean pesos (ca. 28-77 Eur) plus fees.

There are rumours that further dates in the Latin American leg of the tour will be re-scheduled as well, but we couldn’t find any information on this yet. We will keep you updated.
