Roxette’s tour venue in Madrid destroyed by fire

Written by Senna on June 28, 2001 to .

MADRID - Palacio de los Deportes, the venue in this city where Roxette was going to play in October, was destroyed by a fire this morning.

  Tickets for the concert were to go on sale tomorrow, but now Roxette must first find a substitute venue. Palacio de los Deportes (“Sports Palace” in English) had a capacity of about 14,000 people and was one of the biggest concert venues in Madrid. It was here that Roxette played during their Crash! Boom! Bang! tour in 1994.

  One possible place for Roxette’s concert might be La Cubierta, a bull-fighting venue in Leganés, 10 kilometers from Madrid.


I only have a few words to add: Boy... that’s gotta suck to have it burn down just before ticket sales start.

haha, we’re definitely freaks!
Yeah, haha, and we are proud 2B !!!!

Oh yea! I agree! But that´s what fans act like from time to time... Good thing no one was hurt though! Maybe Roxette could try to play in open air or something... I take that back, rox on ( ;

Roxette have now four things to choose about the Madrid concerts:
1-Play in la Cubierta (No rain, bad acoustic)
2-Play in Las Ventas(bull-fighting ring) or a stadium (They´ll never play in a place where it may rain)
3-PLay in La Riviera(A little club, no very bad acoustic but too small, so they had to play there 5 days!)
4-No play.

I think I prefer the first one.

Wow !!! They are coming with thunder !!!
Sorry , I know it is not funny , but ...
