Additional tour dates in Germany in Autumn!

Live Nation has sent out the first dates of the additional dates which will be added to the Roxette World Tour 2011. The dates are, so far, for Germany and Spain (already known) only.

“The concerts have been great so far,” tells Per Gessle. “Marie and the band are in top form and the response of the audience has been incredible. And it is also great that the new album has been received like this. We are very happy and look forward to this exciting year!”

2011.10.13 – TUI Arena – Hannover, Germany
2011.10.14 – Gerry Weber Stadion – Halle (Westfalen), Germany
2011.10.16 – SAP Arena – Mannheim, Germany
2011.10.17 – Schleyerhalle – Stuttgart, Germany
2011.10.19 – König-Pilsner Arena – Oberhausen, Germany
2011.10.24 – O2-World – Berlin, Germany
2011.10.25 – O2-World – Hamburg, Germany
2011.10.27 – Arena Nürnberg – Nuremberg, Germany
2011.11.18 – Palacio Vistalegre – Madrid, Spain – pre-sale starts March 16, normal sale March 18
2011.11.19 – Sant Jordi Club – Barcelona, Spain – pre-sale starts March 16, normal sale March 18

Information about ticket sales in Germany is still not available.

In addition, apparently Live Nation Spain has cancelled the Golden Ring tickets which were announced last week, so currently only the normal tickets (49 EUR) are listed on the website.

More dates to come, hopefully in other countries and Stockholm too! For the complete tour agenda so far, visit our World Tour 2011 page!

Update: Tickets for Germany will go on sale this Friday, March 18 at 9 in the morning.

A short note about releases: The interest in the countries where “Charm School” hasn’t been released yet is very high. However, the album won’t contain the same track list in all countries. For example, China has forbidden Roxette to release “Sleeping In My Car” due to the sexual content. Therefore the live version of this song, which is included in the Deluxe version of “Charm School”, will be excluded.

2010 tour: Sundsvall, August 7, tour premiere

Trivia

16,000 visitors in the arena!

Sundsvall Roxette gig gets its own website

Media are really interested in summer Roxette concert that will take place in Sundsvall on August 7th. It will be the first full Roxette gig since 2001. According to the press release it will be the first European Roxette concert. It can mean there is no chance for any other show before August 7th.

After several articles in local press, over 9,000 tickets sold, Norrporten Arena’s website got the new look – only dedicated to forthcoming summer festival. You can read the most important information regarding the festival: find media partners and sponsors, buy tickets for the show, bus, train or book a room at one of Sundsvall hotels and hostels.

There is also a chance to win tickets for the festival as long as you can decribe your most exciting Roxette experiance in Swedish – before May 1st. The winners will be announced on Monday May 3rd. No informations is given if only Swedish citizens can participate in this contest.

In “Örongodis” section you can listen to two radio advertisments of the concert (the longer and the shorter one).

Roxette to play in Sundsvall on August 7

According to Swedish media, and confirmed to Roxette’s manager Marie Dimberg, Roxette will play in Norrporten Arena, Sundsvall (Sweden) on August 7.  The organizators exepect around 20,000 in public. This will be, if no more shows are added to the tour, the real first Roxette concert since 2001.

Tickets will be on sale on April 23 via Ticnet. The support band will be German The Baseballs, known from their Elvis-covers of Rihanna’s “Umbrella” and… Roxette’s “The look”.

It seems like the information in Norwegian and Danish press about two gigs in Sweden are finally confirmed.

Roxette in Russia in September

D&D Management confirmed the dates for two Roxette concerts today. The shows are in Russia and these are the dates:

September 10 – Moscow Mega Sport Arena
September 12 – St. Petersburg New Arena

Per Gessle also sent a short message to The Daily Roxette confirming the dates and hinting at more shows to come:

It feels fab to start the new year announcing live concerts by Roxette. Both Moscow and St Petersburg should be great fun! And if we’re all lucky there’s even more to come. By the way, the new recordings are going great, we’ll continue sweatin’ it out for the next six months or so. You’ll find videos/pics from the recordings on Snowfish.

Cheers, P.

A Russian ticket site has already listed both Roxette shows.
