As www.roxette.se informs, Roxette decided to share their dress rehearsal with 600 fans:

Roxette will play Leif’s Lounge at Hotel Tylösand on Wednesday night. 600 tickets will be released on Wednesday morning, in order to stop ticket scalpers, and will cost 295 SEK. Tickets may be bought in the reception of Hotel Tylösand starting at 11.00 AM.
The concert starts at 10 PM.

Tylösand Hotel’s 41 million SEK profit.

Even now Per Gessle and Björn Nordstrand, owners of Tylösand Hotel, cannot complain about theirs profits – Hallandposten informs.

According to Dagens Industri the hotel’s last year’s turnover was over 162 million SEK, while net profit landed on 41 million. Because of the recession and fewer bookings, comparing to 2007 profits decreased by 10 from 51 million SEK.
