Two new TV ads for the New Year’s Party

Polsat TV presented two new ads for the New Year’s Eve Party in Warsaw. The first one uses two Roxette songs in the background: “Joyride” and “How do you do!”. In the second one Marie and Per appeared – the ID was recorded in Moscow while recording of the Russian “Olivier” show. Per says in Polish “Badzcie z nami”, which can be translated into “Be with us (there)”.

Warsaw stage is being built

In only 9 days Roxette will perform on this stage in the centre of Warsaw on the New Year’s Party organized by Polsat TV and The City of Warsaw .

By the way… -15 C degrees is expected here in Warsaw on December 31st. That will be a very cool evening for sure.

Update: Agata Mlynarska, one of the New Year’s Eve Party hosts, revealed that Roxette would perform in 3 sets – two sets before the midnight and one on January 1st. It seems like they will perform 2 songs in each set. There is also a chance for another song according to Polsat. It is still unknown what the 6th and possible 7th song will be.

Roxette to perform 6 songs in Warsaw

According to roxette.pl Facebook fan page user – Krzysztof Charchuta, Polsat TV broadcasted a new interview with Per Gessle in a showbiz programme “Sie kreci” yesterday. Per Gessle said that Roxette would perform 6 songs in Warsaw and he named 5 of them: “Joyride”, “It must have been love”, “The look”, “Listen to your heart”, “Sleeping in my car”. Unfortunately, he did not want to reveal the 6th song’s title.

At the moment it is still not possible to watch the programme online. The programme will be available on ipla.pl service on Wednesday, December 22nd

Update: Here is the photo from the interview. Per said that they would sing 6 biggest hits, so I do not see a possibility to hear “She’s got nothing on (but the radio)” in Warsaw.

Roxette to perform live on New Year’s Eve in Warsaw

According to Polsat TV‘s press office – Roxette will definitely perform live on New Year’s Eve party on December 31st in Warsaw. As for the chosen songs, they cannot reveal anything at the moment. They do not want to say how many, which and if any new song will be performed neither. The Polsat press releases informed about “It must have been love”, “Listen to your heart”, “Joyride”, “The look” being performed in Warsaw; on the other hand “How do you do!”, “Dangerous” and “Sleeping in my car” are also used in various TV and radio promos.

Meanwhile, in the streets of Warsaw, in the press and all over the internet the New Year’s Eve concert’s promotion has just began entitled “Sylwestrowa Moc Przebojow” (Power of New Year’s Hits). As you can see below, Roxette’s photo is not on the posters – Polsat TV decided to use only the Polish artists images. Other foreign guests to perform in Warsaw are Opus (“Life is life” theme) and Denzel (“Pump it up”). The Polish artist will perform the most popular European hits as Polsat and the Warsaw authorities want to mark the start of Polish Presidency of the European Union in the second half of 2011.

This will be probably the first time ever when Roxette will perform in front of over 100,000 people. Close to 4,000,000 people are expected to watch the show on Polsat TV. Unfortunately, Polsat has no official live streaming on the internet. The other media partner is Radio ZET, which should broadcast the show as well and yes – you can listen to it all over the world.

If you want to see a TV ad for the concert – “Joyride” and “How do you do!” is used in the background, please visit Polish Roxette fan page on Facebook: www.facebook.com/RoxettePL

The official event website has just opened its gates, though it is only in Polish. The admission to the Constitution Square will begin at 7 PM, one hour before the whole show will start. Between 2 and 7 PM soundchecks and general rehearsal will take place.

Roxette in Poland on New Year’s Eve – finally confirmed!!

The official press release was sent to the Polish media today. Roxette will be the main star of the open-public, free New Year’s Party on Constitution Square in the centre of Warsaw. As we previously informed the rumours had it that Roxette was due to perform in Lodz, third largest Polish city, but due to the financial problems, Lodz authorities had to cancel this open-air public New Year’s Party for citizens.

According to this information, Roxette will come to Poland in a private jet and will perform the biggest hits eg. “Joyride”, “It Must Have Been Love” or “Listen To Your Heart”.

The show will start at 20.00 CET and will last for more than 5,5 hours. City Council gave over 900,000 EUR to organize this event. The New Year’s Party in Warsaw will be broadcasted by Polsat TV and Radio ZET.

“Gessle over Poland” audio bootleg

So here it comes. Afer one year of preparations and waiting we have finally managed to end up our works on yet another bootleg from “Party crasher tour” – to be honest – one of the funniest Roxette fan experiances in the 21st century.

After more or less professional recordings from Prague, London, Amsterdam and Stockholm (with Marie) as well as live tracks on amazing double album “Gessle over Europe”, it’s time for Warsaw. Per Gessle and his band came to Poland to play just one concert in Stodola rock club in Warsaw on April 22nd. In fact Poland was the only country on the tour list where Roxette/Gessle have never played live before. Some sources say that there were around 1,000 people in the audiance, but on the other hand I was informed about 700 tickets sold. Who’s right, who’s wrong? Who really cares?

Back to the topic. It’s a bootleg and it’s a compilation. So the quality differs from song to song constantly. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s not so good, but that is how it works when you use five different recording sources. Give Slawek Sztul – he made it all possible (‘na na na’ on “The look” is his! 🙂 and Blanka ‘Blunek’ Pentela – she has designed all the covers for “Gessle over Poland” included in the set – a big hand. I cannot forget about Ela ‘Blue_girl’ Krysinska – thank you for your help and contribution. It was amazing to work with you guys!

“Gessle over Europe” DVD – menu

The very first look at “Gessle over Europe” DVD menu:

The most interesting things I’ve noticed while the watching:

– the interview parts with Per & fans pop up many times through the Cirkus concert – after “Dressed for success” [Why did Per decide to go on the club tour?], “The Party Pleaser” [Rosina & Dany spotted; Per tells more about how he appreciates the fans – especially those from South America], “She doesn’t live here anymore” [Interview with Ezequiel in Swedish; Per’s story from Warsaw gig about some people from Siberia who came for the concert], “Late, later on” [The idea of this tour], “Do you wanna be my baby?” [Roxette/Gessle music as the soundtrack of our lives; Dany wants her husband to forgive her! :D], “Doesn’t make sense” [The future?], “Joyride” [The little concerts suit Per the best], “Are you an old hippie, sir?” [About “The look”], “It must have been love” [The tour experiances], “Queen of rain” [Per tells more about the band members; fans from Spain, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico after the Cirkus concert]

– though there is a 12 years-old parental adivsory – both videos for “Kix” and “Do you wanna be my babe?” are censored

– some unseen footage from the tour was added to the 100x tribal homevideos
