Quick Per Gessle/Roxette update. Per, who performed in London last night, has announced that “Party Crasher” will see the light of day in the UK on June 15th. In an interesting development, the record won’t be released on EMI, but instead will be distributed by Sony. No sign of the record on Sony’s website yet, nor whether “Silly Really” will be released as a single prior to the full-length.
The news that might be bigger for many of you is that Roxette will be performing live together tonight in Amsterdam. Rumor has it that Marie has been declared healthy and ready to tour, and they will do so later this year, making up dates that the band had to cancel way back in 2002. Talk about devotion, eh?
that roxette/solo roxette are still going is one of the great comforts in my life. Silly Really has been out a little while now though and i still haven’t given it the attention it deserves.
The UK? Didn’t see that coming!
I must have either not known or totally forgot about Marie’s tumor. Glad she’s on the mend.
That’s great news. I run a bit hot and cold with Roxette but they are fabulous in their own unique way. Glad that Marie is feeling better.
OMG. I fricking love Roxette. My friend Mark always gets pissed at me every time I plant a Roxette song in his head after I go on a humming rampage.
