Roxette XXX Tour – Trondheim, Norway (Sverresborg Arena) – June 13 – #37

Tickets for Roxette’s 37th show of the XXX tour went on sale mid November last year. They were selling like hot cakes and the concert was sold out already on 1st January. So tonight, after having an almost 2-week-long tour break, the band performed in front of 10,000 people who had a picturesque view.

It was quite cold, so Marie dressed up warmly. She even had a pair of cool-looking gloves on. There were 2 heaters on stage for her and they looked more modern and probably worked better than the one in Denmark 3 weeks ago. Marie had an ear-to-ear smile on her face during the whole show, tapping the rhythm on her legs. She enjoyed the gig to the full.

Despite the fact that it was an open-air show and you would have expected Per following the routine of wearing his white outfit, he left it at home and was wearing some new black shirts instead. They have the same design with PER, ROX, XXX on the sleeve as the white set. PG was very energetic and he was even acting a bit with the camera when Åsa was filming him.

The whole band was in top shape and they did their best to animate the crowd. There were hardly any familiar faces in the front row or better said, in the whole crowd at all. People in the audience didn’t really realize they wouldn’t be freezing if they were jumping more, but they proved they knew the lyrics to all the hits and used their hands for clapping along.

Since Swedish is very similar to Norwegian and vice versa, both Marie and Per used Swedish when they were talking to the crowd.

Per’s comment after the show:

TRONDHEIM UPDATE: Truly fab sold out (10.000+) gig tonite in this beautiful town. Band in top shape after two weeks of moonshining and jailbreaks and Miss Effe blessed us with her golden voice for 90 adorable minutes. All set in this wonderful venue under the (almost) midnight sun (yea, I know – it’s not really the m.s. but it’s so light outside it’s hard to imagine unless you’re here…). Thanx everyone for showing up. Can we come back, please? /P.

Next gig is on Monday (15th June) in Ostrava, Czech Republic.

Roxette’s one and only concert in Norway is sold out

Roxette_TrondheimAs we already informed you about it in an earlier post of ours, tickets for the one and only Roxette concert in Norway in 2015 were selling like hot cakes. Tickets went on sale on 14th November and the next day we could read it in Norwegian newspapers that half of the total amount of tickets had been sold only in a few hours.

Today at 13:30 it was announced that only 237 tickets were left, then some hours later the operators of the Facebook page of Trondheim Concerts posted (also at the event’s Facebook page) that the Roxette concert is officially sold out. 10,000 people will see Roxette at Sverresborg Arena on 13th June! Woohoo! Congrats!

Those of you who wanted to see Roxette in Norway, but haven’t bought your tickets yet, now you may want to plan another option. HERE you can check the complete list of already announced dates.
