Rumour after rumour about Roxette’s comeback; Night of the proms 2009 true?

April 24th, 2009 by Judith

During the past days, a lot of rumours about Roxette’s comeback have been heard on the Roxette online community, below you’ll find a summary:

– Not a rumour, but already confirmed by Per at Twitter: Roxette albums will be remastered and re-released in Autumn. Open is: which albums are we talking about? Which bonuses?

– Roxette to play at “New Wave” event in Latvia in July from The Daily Roxette. Even though this was reported by an important Latvian newspaper, the management hasn’t confirmed the news yet (but hasn’t denied it either). Wait and see.

– Roxette at Night of the Proms 2009:
Last week some fans from the German forum found a hidden Html code on the NOTP German fanpage which announced Roxette as one of the main acts at NOTP 2009 edition. Tour promoters didn’t confirm this (but didn’t deny it either), since all artists will be announced at a press conference on the 5th of May, 17:00 CET.

TDR User Remco found following text on the NOTP website:

“In the beginning of May we will announce another big artist. I am quite sure that this will be “hot news” for whoever loves true pop music. … We expect ticket sales to go super fast after this announcement”, according to organiser Jan Vereecke.”

Which again, makes everybody think Roxette is one of the artists participating in the event, true pop music…

And then, after I read that there will be a big press conference to announce the artists, I started to think, **IF** Roxette are performing, would they have time to attend the press conference? A quick check at Per Gessle’s current tour plan showed me that he has a show on the day before, May 4th, in London, and on the day after, 6th May, in Amsterdam. The press conference is in Antwerpen, which is not at all far away from these cities, so IF they are part of NOTP attending the press conference shouldn’t be a problem.

– Marie to perform with Per, where?
Per already commented Marie would join him on the stage during the tour. The big question is, where? Most people guessed Stockholm would be the best logical choice. But I started to think, in connection to NOTP press conference and that there seems to be something happening with Roxette this year, that maybe London (or Amsterdam) would also be an option.

These are only speculations on the rumours. There is nothing confirmed, so we’ll have to wait at least until the 5th of May to know what happens with NOTP, and regarding Marie’s performance with Per: just be surprised.

Marie Fredriksson to join Crown Princess Victoria at Stadshuset gala in June

April 24th, 2009 by Judith

Written by Lars-Erik_Olson for The Daily Roxette

Marie Fredriksson will be one of the celebrity guests attending a June 18 gala at Stadshuset (Stockholm City Hall) where Crown Princess Victoria will be handing out this year’s prizes from the Marianne and Sigvard Bernadotte Artist Fund. The gala is even more special this year as Marianne Bernadotte, who is Victoria’s great aunt, is celebrating her 85th birthday.

Marie is expected to perform during the event, along with Marianne Bernadotte’s close friend Lill Lindfors, opera singer Barbara Hendricks with Staffan Scheja, and violinist Christian Svarfvar. Other special guests announced at this morning’s press event, held at the Grand Hôtel, include ABBA singer Agnetha Fältskog, but it is uncertain for now whether she too will perform.

Per Gessle reveals Marie Fredriksson may join him on stage

April 13th, 2009 by Judith

Per Gessle, who is going on a tour this month with his latest album The Party Crasher, has started to communicate with his fans through Twitter. He has been answering questions from his fans from his @PartyPleaser Twitter account for a couple of days and has revealed some nice information about his tour.

The most interesting piece of information for all Marie and Roxette fans is the fact that Marie and Per have discussed about performing with him on the tour: “Yes, she might pop up somewhere, we’ve talked about it,” Per wrote in his tweet. In addition to that, the two shows in Stockholm on May 9th and 10th will be filmed for a possible live DVD.

We must fight against the extreme  material, social and emotional poverty in which they livea,” writes H.M. Queen Silvia on the foundation’s homepage. Currently the foundation supports more than 100 projects in 14 countries.

All revenue from the gala will be donated to World Childhood Foundation.
