Roxette World Tour 2011 schedule

UK fans plan long-awaited weekend gathering

Written by ally77 on March 12, 2006 to .

LONDON (UPDATED) - After a long period without such a get-together, a small group of UK Roxette fans are organizing a fan meeting here and they’re hoping to attract a crowd. With low weekend airfares available to London, perhaps this might be the excuse you’ve been looking for to schedule a visit. The working title for the two-day event, scheduled for April 1-2, is “Meet, Greet & Get Drunk!”

  “We’ve set a meeting place and time,” says Alison Marie, one of the event organizers. “This is something that many fans have wanted for a long time and finally we’re trying to have one big party for us all. This will be a great opportunity to meet people and what better time that the 20th Anniversary year of Roxette,” she concludes.

  Plans are still being formulated, but further information is available on Ailsa Plain’s website and, where webmaster Steven Howlett has set up a page, or you can email the event organizers: Alison (ally77) or Paul (pwbbounce). Both of them say they’ll be happy to help!

  Update March 12: An auction will take place during the Fan Meeting “to raise money for Cancer Research UK in respect of Marie Fredriksson and her battle with cancer,” explains organizer Alison. “I was aware that Per once donated some items to a similar auction the German fans had a long time ago and I thought I could repeat the idea!”.

  Marie Dimberg, Roxette’s manager, sent a parcel full of Roxette, Per Gessle and Gyllene Tider items signed by Per Gessle and Roxette, which will be auctioned off during the two-day fan meeting. Among these items are four copies of “Finn 5 fel!” promo CD, two copies of “I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend” 7” single and various Roxette singles and postcards.

  A reserve price has been put on the items to ensure a good amount for each item “in order to raise the money for charity,” tells Alison. The items not sold during the event will be listed on eBay afterwards “to give Roxette fans all over the world the chance to own something signed and also to raise money for the important charity Cancer Research UK,” explains Alison to The Daily Roxette.

  If you wish to donate any Roxette or related item for the auction please contact Alison.
