Now it’s 100% sure: Gyllene Tider at Allsång på Skansen

In an earlier article of ours we informed you about a rumour that according to Aftonbladet, Gyllene Tider will participate in this year’s Allsång på Skansen. Per kind of confirmed the rumour by sharing the article, but now that Expressen is writing about it and Micke Syd confirmed GT’s appearance in an e-mail to Expressen, we can be 100% sure.

Micke Syd promised some new and some old songs to be played at Skansen. About how it feels to perform at Skansen he writes:

It feels good. It’s a beautiful place with an audience singing amazingly well.

 

It’s still not clear which Tuesday Gyllene Tider is there, but the complete list of artists will be announced on 11th June, so then we might know more about the date as well.

Gyllene Tider nostalgia trip

You might remember the video Per shared on Gyllene Tider’s Facebook page appr. 2 weeks ago, where they appeared in a legendary TV studio with legendary Annika Jankell (reporter). The legendary interview was for a documentary that will be on air at 22:00 CET, 6th June on SVT1 (also at 13:55 CET and 01:05 CET, 9th June).

“Gyllene Tider’s Parkliv today” is a nostalgia trip back to the summer of 1981 and contains parts from Parkliv documentary, concert photos, hits, as well as the interview Annika did with GT about the past 30 years.

Gyllene Tider at Allsång på Skansen

According to Aftonbladet, Gyllene Tider will most probably be one of the guests at Allsång på Skansen. SVT has not yet confirmed the list of artists.

Allsång på Skansen (Sing-along at Skansen) is a Swedish show held at Skansen, Stockholm. SVT broadcasts it on Tuesdays between 8 pm and 9 pm CET every summer. The audience (10 000 – 25 000 people) is supposed to sing-along with musical guests to well-known Swedish songs.

This year’s Allsång på Skansen premieres on 25th June (lasts until 13th August). Looking at the tour agenda, the Fabulous Five are free each Tuesday, but might be busy with travelling from one place to another, so as the GT tour starts on 5th July and ends on 10th August, the guys – if they really take part in this year’s program – may appear at the show on 25th June, 2nd July or 13th August. We’ll let you know about the exact date once it is announced.

Gyllene Tider already appeared in this program in 2004 and Per also took part in it in 2003 and 2007. Here are some of their performances at those shows:

Shortened version of the Rox documentary & Roxette concert on SVT

For those who are eagerly waiting for Christmas gifts – there will be a big one from Roxette. You just have to live in Sweden to watch the public channel SVT on Wednesday, December 26th at 10:30pm for the shortened version of the Roxette documentary which will be – HOPEFULLY – out on the DVD next year. If you are living abroad, we guess it will be available in a free-of-charge VOD service on the website later that week. At this point we do not know if the documentary is in English or Swedish.

Additionally – as Roxette Cafe found out – January 2, 2013 at 10:30pm SVT 1 will air a Roxette concert compiled from the 2011-2012 world tour!

We’re keeping our fingers crossed the Gyllene Tider casus won’t be repeated this time…*

Here’s the short synopsis translated by Patricia Peres:

After Marie Fredriksson suffered from a brain tumor in 2002 it was a long way to recovery, and no one could have imagined that Roxette almost ten years later would be revived and go on a world tour again. What started with six planned gigs became a triumphal march around the world that lasted over 19 months. We follow Per, Marie and the band in a documentary about their return, the world tour, work in the studio, fantastic and fanatic fans worldwide with wonderful stories about how Roxette affected their lives and how they live with Roxette’s music.

* GT promised to release DVD with a documentary back in 2004, but firstly they showed the shortened version of the programme on TV and then the DVD was moved in time and with time cancelled…

“Hitlåtens historia” with “The look” available to watch

Have you ever known that it was Clarence who counted 1-2-3-4 in “The look”? This and more in the exclusive footage from the recording studios in SVT’s “The look” documentary. It seems it was co-produced by Danish and Norwegian TV-stations, so it’s very probable it will be broadcasted in other Scandinavian countries.

In my opinion – the best Roxette documentary of 21st century.

Update: Fellow rox fan shirley is working on an English translation of the documentary, which should lead to a subtitled video. You can read her work in progress at R2R forums and maybe help her!
