Jens Peterson, Aftonbladet’s journalist, did an extensive report from the Warsaw concert on 19th June this year. He has also interviewed Per Gessle about his plans around the current World Tour and attitude to social media websites like Facebook or Twitter. Here are the most interesting quotes:
Response from fans is huge. The films are viewed by between 70,000 and 100,000 people. We get 500-600 new friends on Facebook every day.
[Band and crew have wondered whether there is a risk to put out too much on Facebook, but] this fear I can give a shit about. If you like Roxette, you get information every day. And it’s fun to do it. I wonder what it would’ve been like if this was when I was growing up. When I loved David Bowie over everything else – just imagine I would have gotten so much information. Or Lennon.
Yes, I do [Facebook & Twitter] almost exclusively on computer. I have an iPhone at home. In Sweden, I use my iPhone and I surf on the net on the way from the airport. I spend quite a lot of time on computer every day.
[Being active in social media] is really unlike me, because I’m not super technical and not much interested in the web. I’m not interested in the media itself. But one must applaud YouTube.
It’s so easy [to film everything with an iPhone]. I film a lot and choose the best clips. There may be two or twenty movies a day.
I do not think so [I use Facebook and Twitter more than traditional media], but I’m doing as little press as possible. I have seen how journalists in the Czech Republic and Spain built articles they write on the facts from our Facebook page.
The successes of the first half of the tour means that Roxette will be travelling with a larger stage and more equipment. We need to improve it a bit for the autumn tour.

Did some recordings at MP’s brand new Tits&Ass studio. Very cozy, great vocal-sound, nice coffee.
According to Dagens Nyheter Per Gessle was watching Depeche Mode’s concert at Globen, Stockholm (January 31st) from the mixboard place together with Anton Corbijn. The well-known photographer was also called as the “third member of Roxette”. Did someone forget about Clarence?
Here’s what the Man said about this gig on his Twitter and Facebook:
Just back from Depeche@theGlobe. Much better than expected since I don’t know that many songs. FANTASTIC set design! And a beautiful crowd!! And Dave Gahan is great mix between Freddie Mercury and Mick Jagger…
Re. Depeche Mode: And of course, Anton Corbijn did the stage production!
Great and generous dinner at Milano in Antwerp, hosted by Jan, the great guru behind NOTP, So many people, so little time.
According to the site, Milano is the oldest Italian restaurant in Antwerp. The restaurant is located in the very heart of town, within walking distance from the central station, and is frequently visited by important people from around the world and Belgian celebrities.
To Ellie + Ani + Rosi + Dani + Ogi & Emil of Bulgaria: Thanx for the posters & your mindblowing support. Appreciate it! Cheers, P.

it’s the happy ending of a story that started with a mindblowing concert in cologne on 27.04.2009. we were so happy and enthusiastic after it that we put our energy into creating these posters of the show with our own pictures taken from the first row.
you can download them if you like from our romanian friends at roxette.ro and naturally we wanted Per to have them as well cause he was the reason and the catalyst of our creativity
Roxette will not only perform on “Night of the Proms” tour – they will also sell their own merchidise at the tour’s shop. It is the very first time since 2001 we will have an opportunity to purchase the official stuff. More informations to follow.

Great rehearsals last nite. Had a ball playing with Jonas again.
And Marie’s singing was yeehaa! Looking good.

As we informed, Lars Demian has recorded EP called “Att inte vara Pär Gezzle” with two covers of Per Gessle’s songs – “Listen to your heart” and “Här kommer alla känslorna (på en och samma gång)”. Now he is on his promotion tour around Sweden and few clips popped up on YouTube.
