Roxette World Tour 2011 schedule

“I’m gonna run to you...”

Written by tevensso on April 25, 2005 to .

HELSINKI - Finally it has happened! Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of The Daily Roxette, Visa Kopu, has finally gotten his Tia! On Saturday, April 23, Visa and Tia tied the knot in front of 35 guests at restaurant Haikaranpesä. The venue is located 76 meters above sea level in the Haukilahti Water Tower in Espoo.

  To the sound of Roxette’s “Run to You,” they walked in: Tia wearing a beautiful champagne-colored dress with matching flowers while Visa donned a British style tuxedo with a golden cravat. The civil ceremony and vows remain somewhat of a mystery to TDR, as this reporter doesn’t speak Finnish.

  After the ceremony there was a reception with a buffet lunch consisting of cold and warm dishes and wine. The happy couple received presents of course, among them a CD with rare Roxette demos, a couple of rare Gessle DVDs, Kosta Boda glasses, Iittala silverware, bath towels, numerous other CDs and of course money.

  In the middle of the dessert an a capella group appeared and sang a few chosen bits in Finnish that seemed to be appreciated. They finished with a – to say the least – strange version of Roxette’s “How Do You Do!”.

  When the reception was over, the younger part of the assembled guests left for a bar in central Helsinki called “American Bar” where, of course, drinks were consumed.

  The bridal couple will go to Osaka, Japan on their honeymoon.

All the best to you from Lars-Erik, Judith and Thomas… and we understand Per sent personal congratulations as well!

This seems to be the best stuff I’ve read here since the news about Marie’s new album! Just one more wonderful thing about good music is that it brings people together. Visa and Tia, and everybody who met friends and lovers thanks to Roxette, I’m really glad for you (and a bit jealous, to be honest :)). Let your love for each other last for ever! And - big THANK YOU to Marie and Per for all the good things they keep on bringing to our lives.


What else could I add? Congratulations:)

Roxette “run from one heart to another again” and bring ppl togethr!
