What about NOTP?

According to Stephan Bodewig, the administrator of the Nokia Night of the Proms-fanpage on which we found the hidden source code information that Roxette is part of the 2009 proms, Per Gessle was seen with Dirk Hohmeyer, the promoter and organizer of the German Proms. They apparently met at the day of Per’s concert in Munich.
Here are the links for the tickets again:

Tickets for the German shows.
Tickets for the Belgian shows.
Tickets for the Dutch shows.

Bodewig still thinks that Per Gessle is doing the proms on his own as a solo artist and not with Marie as Roxette. But according to rumours that Marie will be in The Netherlands on wednesday (the day after the official NOTP press conference in Antwerpen) it’s most likely that it is indeed Roxette who will participate.

Roxetteblog.com opens its doors

So we finally decided to go public with Roxetteblog.com

This website or blog was born from the idea of wanting to have all events and news happening around Roxette in one single place, as a sort of archive. In the last weeks, with Per Gessle’s tour and the rumours about Roxette, there’s been a lot going on. I’ve been regularly visiting 3 forums and 2-3 websites to get news, links to performances, pictures and so on and trying to keep track of all.. but I failed. I then started to collect all interesting links in “My Favourites”, but it soon became a mess and started to get lost. Excel lists didn’t help either.

So here’s where this website comes in. First I thought of doing it for myself, but then I thought it might help others as well. The idea is based on the microblogging such as Twitter.  It’s about having the most information, all packed in one website. An archive if you want to call it like that. Easy to search, easy to access, simple but useful. As our logo says, don’t miss a Roxette & Co thing! Or don’t forget where you read or found this or that about Roxette & CO!

Kirsten aka Kiwein (DE) joined this project as soon as I told her about this idea (thx for the theme!). She runs the German fanpage and forum.
Tomos85 (PL), Tevensso (SE) and Abysmo (CZ) also joined us this weekend. We also count with the collaboration of Mixella (RO) from Roxette.ro.

We are still looking for collaborators, fans who are very active in the Rox community and who love to share links to news and information they find in the net. Would you like to join the project? Just contact us and we’ll talk about it. The only think we ask for is your active participation, notifying us about any interesting links. As you can see in the existing articles, they don’t have to be “nice”, it is most of the times more than enough to write a few words with a link to the source.

We also want to use this site to share own thoughts about Roxette & Co. What forum do we like most/recommend? Other artists we think other Roxers might like? What’s going on in the Rox community? Who is going to what show?

And of course, your feedback is more than welcome!

Changes in the setlist

After adding “Sleeping in my car” to the playlist on Party crasher tour’s Cologne show (April 27th), now was a high time for Son of a plumber’s single – “Hey Mr DJ (Won’t you play another love song)” in Gent, Belgium (May 2nd). According to Per at gessle.com, the whole show was a blast with many international fans from Spain and Argentina in the audience.
