STOCKHOLM (Updated) - The Daily Roxette got hold of Per just before leaving for Jurmala, Latvia and the New Wave festival where Roxette will perform "for real" for the first time in 8 years tomorrow. Per says they are bringing C&C - Christoffer and Clarence on bass and keyboards respectively, Pelle Alsing on drums and Jonas Isacsson on guitar. Per has super-charged his Gretsch this time.
It seems Roxette will play the same five songs as on the Night of the Proms; "Wish I Could Fly," "The Look," "Joyride," "It Must Have Been Love" and "Listen to Your Heart."
And just to be clear; since this is a TV-show Roxette will not be performing live, but lipsync.
- Fading Like A Flower
- It Must Have Been Love
- Listen To Your Heart
- Run To You
- Spending My Time
The Roxette Ballads song pack costs 70 SEK (€ 6.50) in the Swedish SingStore.
Update: Sony has now presented the SingStore's global download chart for June and Roxette Ballads is at #4!

BYRON CENTER - The U.S. division of Amazon MP3 has Per Gessle's "Silly Really" available to download (for $0.99) with a release date of June 17, 2009 on Gessle's own Elevator Entertainment company. No sign yet of the "Party Crasher" album, however. Maybe this is a sign of more things to come for the U.S. market… at least when it comes to the digital realm?
