Roxette are back

Finally confirmed: Roxette are back. Marie Fredriksson will perform with Per Gessle on his concert in Amsterdam on wednesday.

….“Tomorrow, at an official press conference in Belgium, they will announce that Marie has recovered from the illness that forced them to cancel their scheduled appearance in 2002. Seven years later,  Roxette will finally make good on that previous commitment and perform at this year’s series of Night of the Proms concerts to be held in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands later this year.”

More NOTP

As Japeke found out and posted in the Run2Roxette Forum, Roxette will indeed be part of the Nokia Night of the Proms.
This is the way Japeke confirmed the news we already believed in since two weeks now:

If you go to www.notp.com, and then click on germany, netherlands or belgium (Antwerp), just click on program.
If you rightclick on a photo of a artist, you get a specific adress, like http://www.notp.com/files/nl/programma/2009/nlnotp_sharondenadel2.jpg.

Try what you get if you replace ‘sharondenadel2’ by ‘roxette’, so you get http://www.notp.com/files/nl/programma/2009/nlnotp_roxette.jpg: A picture of roxette in the folder of the artists which will perform in 2009!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It doesn’t work for charleroi, france and Spain, but it does for Antwerp, Netherlands, and Germany. So I would say: START BUYING TICKETS Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Exciting!!

I don’t know how you out there are feeling, but I feel like a teenager again. Ok, maybe not THAT extreme, but.. couldn’t sleep last night, can’t wait until tomorrow and Wednesday. I think I will cry. I think I would even cry now just with the thought…
Just had to get this out.

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.
