Roxette World Tour 2011 schedule

“Roxette announcement” expected on November 2

Written by roxeteer on November 2, 2010 to .

(Updated) - Roxette tweeted today that there will be "some kind of Rox announcement" on November 2. Per told TDR it will be "fun stuff," but refused to reveal anything more.

Per and Marie recently finished the recordings of their new studio album. The album is now being mastered in New York. Per also tweeted that he has started recording new demos

Update: According to Roxette's manager Ms. Dimberg there will be no announcement today. Although, tour dates have started to pop up all over the Internet, so it may have to do with that. Per just tweeted that due to things beyond Roxette's control they have postponed the announcement until 10 o'clock tomorrow. Uncertain what timezone Per is referring to…


Great stuff! Roll on Tuesday :-)


Couldn’t wish for a greater birthdaypresent!

oh my god!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Per and Marie I think we will know things like publication dates of the new single and album title of the new single, that sort of thing ....... I can not wait !!!!!! this is beautiful.

Oh, they remembered my birthday :)

I hope it’s a USA tour!!! Then again, I don’t know how likely that is... I sure hope so though!

I’m guessing album related news, maybe a release date/title or single..

Would love to see some more concert announcements, but for the love of God, Allah, Buddha, Zeus and The Force please include Australia this time... I don’t think my bank account can handle the hit of another trip to Sweden so soon after the last one!

It will be very probably about forthcoming gigs... we have found some notes on German site, that there’s something going on...

I’m very curious!!!
I’m sure it will be good news!!

ME TOO! I hope they don’t forget us US fans!

Sunshine is a lady who rox u like a baby!

I’m waiting desperate… new album, new tour… and yes, Roxette in Brasil!


I think there will be advances of the new single and some information on the new album and possible tour .... I’m very happy!!!!

Great! Can’t wait. I think it will be detailed info about single and tour and some info about the album, like title and/or releasedate.

That’s also my point of view to what will happen tomorrow, Daniel. It will be hard to fall asleep today. :D Only tev will sleep well, cos he already know. ;)


Oh I wish it were so...

I hope it’s announced in the morning! I don’t want to have to wait until the afternoon! ha ha


Do we know how the news will be announced? Will there be a press conference or something, or will the “good old” facebook, twitter and snowfish be our sources?

Likely the latter as Per apparently is in NYC.

it’s quite obvious but i can’t sleep neither

At the moment we can say that there will be Vilinius gig for sure as there was a press release about that + a New Year’s Eve Party gig in Poland as one of the papers claims Roxette is the biggest foreign star of that evening :-)

Putting realrain’s link in google translate gives:

Frankfurt, Germany - December 2010 (not ofits.informatsiya)
San Remo, Italy - February 14, 2011
Vina del Mar, Chile - February 2011
Vilnius, Lithuania - March 14, 2011,
Buenos Aires, Argentina - April 2011
Bucharest, Romania - August 2011.

A bit strange to go to Chile in February, and return to Argentina in April, I’d say?

They say there will be a date in Kyiv (Ukraine):

Gyllene Tider forever!

Okay, the anticipation is building now!! Just announce it! ha ha


Someone please pick up the phone call new york and wake up Per the wait is killing us!!!

Anyone.. Thomas?

A long day has begun...

HAND to alla!!

P.S.: SOAP all over again was it November 16? No, i’m hopeful for idag :)

like magic and love lots of forgotten words

The waiting kills me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What is all this is a hoax and the announcement is that they are quitting :)

forgive me but announcements about concerts that i won’t be able to go to in person don’t excite me that much give me a snippet of the first single, or the announcment of a new live dvd set or something. oh hell howabout you play the nokia theater in times square for all your east coast usa fans and yes over 200 people showed up at virgin megastore when you played theres still alot of people that would come to see you guys.

so say we all

Roxette here in Italy? San Remo? can not believe it !!!!!!!!!....maybe for the festival?

I think that the announcement late in coming becouse in New York are just half past ten in the morning! I think we should wait for the evening .... still 3 or 4 hours

No, it’s already past 10.30 AM in New York - DST doesn’t end there until next weekend, so the time difference’s not the same as usual. But I really hope they’re not waiting with the announcement that long!

Sorry guys and gals, the announcement has been delayed.

noooooooooooo i hope in one joke!!

I’ve wasted half a day refreshing the damn website, not happy at all.

Shit happens.. at least we know somethig is in the air something is in the system.. eventualy
like magic and love lots of forgotten words

But it is not right: it is a week waiting for this day to read an important announcement at the end and then we read simply that the announcement will not be done ...... at least give us an explanation ...

Unfortunately, not a good start …

According to Mr. Pleaser tomorrow 10 a.m.

like magic and love lots of forgotten words

So now the new big question: 10am NYC time or CET? :)

… but we should not neglet, they still love us, though.

okay by waiting until tomorrow, I’m not angry, the fact is that we wait so long for the return of legendary roxette, now even one more minute to get important news seems an eternity!!!!!!

Seems everything i’m following is making dates for announcements then having to reschedule. GRRR!!!

I’m sure we can all survive another 24 hours.

If it’s tour dates then I hope there are some in the northern summer. It will give me time to save up some more money (Believe me when I say it wasn’t cheap to travel the 16,000km to Halmstad, Sweden from Melbourne, Australia!!) and anyway I don’t relish the idea of leaving my Aussie summer for a European winter!

It would be great if they come to Australia. They have been out here once in the 80’s (I think) and twice in the 90’s and I was too young to go and see them. Hopefully they come to Adelaide. If not I would go and see them interstate. I wonder what the new album will be called? after CBB, HAND & RS? I can’t think what else they could come up with for an album title. But maybe I’m getting too ahead of myself here...

I don’t mind about the tours too much - for me the album is BIG priority.
Mr G has been making me SO excited about the new album on Facebook, I can hardly contain myself. I’m hoping for a release date for the album and single.
Hopefully a sleeve pic or promo pix too!

If they come to Australia, (I too missed the previous times due to age and lack of money) then I guess I’m going have to see more of my own country. Melbourne would be a guarantee for me and Perth, seeing as I have never been there would be pick number two, and then either Brisbane or Sydney. However I think I’d still try make another trip to Europe next year and catch a concert or two. (I need the excuse to justify another trip so soon after my two month 2010 adventure)

My luck! I have planned a April/ May trip. So, besides Australia, I could catch them in Japan, Europe or the U.S. Who knows! Can not wait to hear the album! If my timing is right we sholud hear from them about 1am tomorrow AEDST ?

I was thinking of a European trip next year anyway so this could work out well : ) I can see them in Australia (provided they actually come here!!) where i’d probably go to the Sydney & Melbourne shows plus some in Europe while I’m there! Why not?! Who knows if they’ll tour like this again!

@StephenDH If they went to Adelaide I think I might have to fly out because I have promising my relatives I would visit for years and it would be the perfect excuse to combine a trip to Australia! They live in Adelaide!

@Roxerally - perfect 2 birds with 1 stone!

Really good news!
My vote to add Spain to the list, Barcelona and Madrid must be there too!!! It’s been a while since we last saw you here... ;P

Such a damn pitty that i will not be able to see the concert in Cape Town. The previous one, in the 90’s, changed my life.

But unfortunately, with South Africa becoming a third world country overnight, we are extremely shocked by the sky-high ticket prices asked by viagogo, with very little people, fortunate enough to being able to afford it. We nowadays have to consider paying our security firm or going to the theatre! Theatre don’t win anymore.

Money don’t grow on trees here, eventhough not everybody believes that. I wish you Marie, and you Per, all success with this tour. It breaks my heart, but maybe one day i will be able to afford the ticket on your next world tour.

Best wishes from South Africa - travel safe!!!
