SWISS interview with Per Gessle

If there is something you did not know about Per Gessle, so now you have a chance to get to know him a little better. Manuela Gretener, Manager Inflight Entertainment at SWISS International Airlines, had a chance to talk with the Man. Here are the most interesting answers.

Have you got any favourite locations where you love to perform?
Roxette have been very lucky to have super crowds all over the planet. There are no ‘bad’ places for us to perform. However, if I should pick one particular place it has to be South America. Those guys and dolls over there are very loud, most generous and totally crazy. Adorable.

What are your most favourite destinations?
I love the Maldives, I love St Tropez, I love New York. I love South Beach in Florida. I love Italy. There are more.

What do you always bring with you while travelling?
Obvious things. Credit cards, ID, cell phone, pictures of my family, a decent iPod and a smile on my face.
