Twitter response from fans:

@stokegriff: Just saw the set list from the Brisbane Roxette show. Plenty of crap songs in there. Kinda wish I was going…
@blu17: Roxette was awesome. Can’t believe they last played in Brisbane in 1995!!!
@ladifabulous: Still buzzin from the Roxette concert but must go to sleep!
@Troyzee: Roxette, you still rock! Great night!
@SponsorshipGuru: Roxette in concert really brought back great 80s memories. Shame she can’t seem to hit the big notes anymore. Still had a great time!

Party after the concert in Madrid and Barcelona? We need your help!

Roxspain, the Spanish Fanclub, is working to organise an after-concert party in Madrid and Barcelona to celebrate the return of Roxette to our country. The party in Madrid would probably be the day before the concert. The one in Barcelona right after the concert.

We would like to know how many of you would assist to these parties so that we have an idea what kind of pub or disco we should book for that.

Please  go to the events we created on Facebook and click on “YES, I will attend”:

Fan stories

BY VASSILIY:

After Joyride (if my memory runs perfect) guys said “Moscow, thank you!” and left the stage. Marie was near the mic, smiling and looking at happy crowd, and when she looked back she saw no one on the stage except her ) She hesitated. Said ” You are great!”, turned back looking for someone to re-appear on the stage, but there was still no one. Then a guy appeared and accompanied her out. Since the croud was crying “Marie, Marie” and Marie herself performed this awkward moment with a little bit of humour, it all looked sweet ))

Review by kp.ru | ruf.ru:

Their songs are natural, like air, for now three generations of Russians. I’ve never seen such an unanimous warm welcome to foreign artists by the metropolitan audience. The journey into joy succeeded!
