Roxette World Tour 2011 schedule

“Showcase” concert in Cologne really rocked!

Written by Lars-Erik_Olson on March 26, 2001 to .

“Rox-ETTE! … Rox-ETTE! … Rox-ETTE!”

  It was a very appreciative, enthusiastic audience that greeted Roxette in Cologne, Germany today for the first of a series of “showcase” concerts. Fans and others in attendance were chanting “Rox-ETTE!” between almost every song during the fully-staged performance. Those not lucky enough to be there in person were able to watch the concert live over the Internet. A German portal site provided the streaming video webcast in three different resolutions.

  Roxette played “Dressed for Success,” “Centre Of The Heart,” “Listen to Your Heart,” “Real Sugar,” “Dangerous,” “Stars,” “Wish I Could Fly,” “Sleeping In My Car,” “The Look,” “It Must Have Been Love,” “Joyride,” and finished with “Perfect Day.”

  “Stars” was a vastly different version – “a special version” as Marie said – sung in a slow, almost ballad style.

 “It Must Have Been Love” featured Marie on the piano… and, of course, the crowd went wild!

  “I had been expecting some kind of accoustic thing, but it was really, really ’rocky’,” reported TDR reader Judith Seuma, who listened in Spain to the concert over the Internet. Another reader, Per Andrén in Sweden, reports that the sound quality of the webcast was “surprisingly good!” The picture quality however, according to other messages left in our SmallTalk section, was not nearly as good.

Mats Persson, percussion and backing vocals; Christoffer Lundqvist, bass guitar and backing vocals; Jonas Isacsson, guitar; and Clarence Öfwerman, keyboards.   Photo courtesy OIRFC
