Per Gessle reveals Marie Fredriksson may join him on stage

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.

A night to remember with Marie – Stjärnklart review

The “Stjärnklart” tour with Marie Fredriksson started some days ago in Norrköping, moved to Stockholm this week and goes on to Gothemburg and Malmö in December. Yesterday was, however, a very special day for Marie fans and Marie herself.

The evening started with a Meet & Greet with about 30 fans from Spain, Germany, Russia and Argentina. Marie showed up with  Micke and Oskar and greeted and hugged everyone, and signed everything what was to sign. She was very touched when she got to sign “Strul” single.

Marie explained that she might make an art exhibition in Malmö, and Micke that they have some material in Swedish, but don’t know when it will be released.

After about half an hour, everybody headed to their seats, Marie backstage to get ready for the show. The first song she performed was “Ännu doftar kärlek”. “Never loved a man”, which her fans will remember from the Roxette Unplugged, followed. “The Unplugged version sounds bad compared to how she sang tonight,” tells Txiqui. “Så skimrande var aldrig havet” and “Tro” were also performed. Marie got standing ovations in repeated ocasions. “The best was “Så skimrande”, tells Txiqui, “this one started a capella, and got everybody to stand up.”
