Roxette World Tour 2011 schedule

Roxette in GTA

Written by tevensso on October 8, 2009 to . Source: Aftonbladet.

Roxette is in the new trailer for the expansion pack of the very popular video game Grand Theft Auto - The Ballad of Gay Tony, or at least the song "The Look" is. Check out this preview, or on Rockstar Games for hi def versions. Only for Xbox 360, in stores October 29.


Brilliant!!! LOL!

Cool! I love GTA!

Hmmm... Wouldn’t Joyride or Sleeping In My Car have been more suitable? :-)

En pojke reser till månen - en annan siktar mot solen - en tredje kommer aldrig iväg

hmmm I’d also say that it doesn’t suit at all..but well... I don’t play video games

Wow, really?? That is huge actually. GTA is a massive series. Good job!! That is a lot of exposure, especially to the younger generations that might not know who they are.

Ah, rats. I thought the title of this article meant that Roxette were going to be in the Greater Toronto Area :-D Wishful thinking continues...

Actually, “The Look” is in a radio commercial for a carpet store chain, which I think is all over Canada. That’s not nearly as cool as being in “Grand Theft Auto” though... (-;

Great exposure for Roxette.

This has nothing to do with this thread, but I have to ask you guys if you have heard or seen anything about this Roxette - Joyride in Australia 92 DVD? I just saw it on cdon for sale:
It’s obviosly a bootleg? Does anyone have it? It’s the quality good?

I read the quality is downright awful.

It isn’t fake, Per just thought it was, however, it still is a bootleg of some sort. Per is checking into it.

But still - it’s not the official release of any kind :)

It’s not really related but I heard “Sleeping in my car” used when presenting the logo of the handball (or was it basketball?) in Spain. They only use the music. Can someone confirm it? Thanks!

That was really cool to see.

There’s quite a few people asking who sang the song on youtube...

’The Look’ might climb up the iTunes chart one of these days :-)

the use the look in ballad of gay tony because gay tony was a club owner in thew 80’s so simc or joyride would really be out of place

so say we all

Heeyyyyy, what a great NEW Roxette picture on the main page. Fantastic picture. Thank you tevensso & co.

I’m sure that dvd is just “Live-Ism” - one can see it’s not official, it looks “home-made”.

By the way, TEV, do you have this new pic on TDR in BIGGER format for us to download??

Great to have Roxette get so much exposure!!!

Here’s a bigger version. I have to check with Per if bigger than this is OK with him:

That’s very Cool because I’m a Fan of the GTA Video Game, but it’s a shame that it is not on Sony Playstation Portable or on PC(because I don’t have the Xbox 360, I only have the PSP and my PC to play such cool Games)

Have Fun!!!

Thanx Tev!!!

Great picture!!

Does Roxette and EMI get money for this?

Most likely yes.

I actually saw an advert on TV the other day for this with “The Look” playing in the background

Marie Fredriksson Online reports that Marie will perform live on stage in Café Opera, Stockholm in an event called “Still rocking in the free world.”

The event is organized by Lass cbest e Lindbom who is remembered as the producer of Marie’s early solo albums. According to the event information in Facebook, the event, taking place on March 12, is dedicated especially to the people “who used Café Opera as their living room in the 80s.” The tickets ccp is only available via Swedish bank giro, so it may be difficult to obtain tickets abroad.

Other artists in the event will be Mats Ronander, Anne-Lie Rydé, Niklas Strömstedt and Lasse Lindbom. They are performing together with the musicians Pelle Alsing, Mats cdl “Gaffa” Karlsson, Patrik Lundström, Hasse Olsson and Mikael Bolyos.

Lasse Lindbom told Marie Fredriksson Online that Marie will perform 4-5 songs, one of them being “Jealous guy” by cen John Lennon.

Hum... Never thought I’d one day be making a comment here... But on this one I really just can’t resist! Well HeartCentre20... Don’t know if I’d have “the courage” to report on that “joke present” detail myself but...It sure was the greatest Saturday night - yes it was!! And the biggest thanx to Roxette again, for presenting Portugal with another unforgetable visit!! :) Now we all [think I can speak in “behalf” of everyone else on this] only hope one day someday we’ll have too “our” concert... ;)
