“Night of the Proms” Poland 2011

This became official few weeks ago that “The Night of the Proms” is going to be showed for the very first time in Poland in February 2011. On the Facebook page of this event there is a survey in which you can win 2 free tickets for the Polish show as well as vote for the most interesting artist/group which should play in Arena Lodz (ca 15,000 spectators) in Lodz, the third largest city in Poland. There will be only one concert in Poland and no artist is confirmed at this point.

According to the latest informations, Roxette is winning in the “international artists” category. I do not know if it makes Roxette’s appearance in Lodz more possible, but it is cool to know that Poles have a good taste in pop music 🙂

RMF FM, the largest radio station in Poland, is the media partner for this event. The same radio was promotiong Per Gessle’s “Party crasher” gig in Warsaw this year.

P.S. I was also informed that there will be no foreign artists on New Year’s Party in Lodz. So the rumours remain rumours.

[Rumours] Roxette in Poland on New Year’s Eve?

I have read about it in the Polish press almost a week ago, but I thought it was one of those stories which are not worth mentioning. But still – I have decided to post it here. After all only gods know what’s the truth.

The rumour has it that Roxette may perform as the main star on the New Year’s Eve public party organized by the authorities of Lodz, the third-largest city in Poland. The other propositions of so-called stars are: Ace of Bace or Sandra (!).

The whole concert will be broadcasted by TVP2, the second chanell of public television and watched, as always, by millions of Poles who stay at home on the New Year’s Eve. The budget for this even is about 700,000 euros.

Unfortunately, even if it’s true, I don’t think it will be live and we cannot expect more than 4-5 songs.
