Another date in South Africa, bigger venue for Sofia

Two good information from Rox World 2011 Tour camp.

As you may remember South African gigs sell like hot cakes and over 5,000 tickets were sold just in the first hours of the sale. This is one of the reasons why Roxette adds the fourth concert in this country – the new one is for Cape Town on Tuesday May 10th, 2011. This makes the first concert (May 11th) to become the second one. Check Computicket.com for more information.

Bulgarian fans do not disappoint Roxette – the concert in Sofia on May 29th will be moved from the National Palace of Culture to the bigger venue – the Georgi Asparuhov stadium. Over 4,000 tickets were sold for NPoC which was “sold-out” for the place.Unfortunately, the organizers will provide only sitting places on the stadium. For additional tickets, please see the link (in Bulgarian only).

Changes in the 2011 World Tour schedule

According to the chilean newspaper La Tercera, the concert promoter T4F announced that the concert in Santiago de Chile, which was supposed to take place on April 10th, has been moved to April 9th. The location stays the same, Movistar Arena. The reasons for the change “are just a rescheduling of the tour in order to offer the best day (of the week, now a Saturday) for the concert.”

Tickets will go on sale on December 11th via Ticketmaster, however, an exclusive pre-sale for members of Zona Entel started on Friday and will last until 10th. Ticket prices range $18.000 – $50.000 chilean pesos (ca. 28-77 Eur) plus fees.

There are rumours that further dates in the Latin American leg of the tour will be re-scheduled as well, but we couldn’t find any information on this yet. We will keep you updated.
