World Tour 2012: Birmingham Audio Bootleg

Torsten Dettlaff published on his website a high quality recording of the Birmingham Roxette concer that took place on July 6, 2012.

He decided to record it with a portable DR-100 recorder. The results are actually pretty good – as he write on the website. You will find a download link there as well. Unfortunately, “Dressed for success” is sadly missing.

Cover for this bootleg done by Roxette Cafe.
