Roxette World Tour 2011 schedule

“ATAY” continues to soar up the charts!

Written by PerFanatic on November 1, 2002 to .

  As the fifth week of “A Thing About You” appearing in the charts draws to a close, it is becoming more and more apparent that this is a huge hit for Roxette.

  Despite the fact that sales figures for the single have been somewhat sluggish, ATAY continues to impress on radio charts throughout mainland Europe. This is evidenced by this week’s biggest jump in new chart appearances to date. Last week, ATAY appeared on some 65 charts, which is not bad for its 4th week. However, in week #5, ATAY jumped through the roof, appearing on a total of 94 charts (see full week-by-week details below).

  ATAY will almost certainly eclipse the 100 mark next week, possibly by a significant margin. Based on this data, it certainly appears that ATAY will achieve at least the success of Roxette’s last two leading singles, “Wish I Could Fly” and “Centre Of The Heart.” Read more…

Radio program in Germany ranks ATAY at #1!

Roxette placed at #1 with “A Thing About You” on German station SWR3’s voteshow on Sunday evening. Last week, they appeared at #3. SWR3 is one of Germany’s major radio stations.

“A Thing About You” begins to climb the charts

Roxette’s lastest offering, the single “A Thing About You,” appears to be gaining ground with increasing airplay on radio and music video channels in various spots around the globe, despite what appears to be a lack of interest this time around from fans to mount any kind of coordinated campaign to help promote the record.

  In Moscow, Radio Maximum’s Hit Parade shows Roxette’s “A Thing About You” at #2! This single will chart on this week’s Hit List and seems to have a chance to beat “Milk & Toast & Honey”’s record.

  In Germany also, Roxette went straight to #2 in the chart of station FFH. “Herbert Grönemeyer is quite big in Germany, at least at the moment, so #2 is fab!,” wrote Andreas Kämpf.

  The Daily Roxette’s SmallTalk forum has several mentions of ATAY being played on radio and TV, and we can expect similar information to be posted as comments to this article.

  Previous “RoxAttaqs” have met with mixed success. While some have been clear victories, others have – because of the SPAM factor – only served to anger the music directors of particular radio stations.

Stockholm record stores unable to meet fan demand

Written by Ramas on November 20, 2001 to .

STOCKHOLM - Fans from all around the world came to three towns in Sweden in order to watch the shows and meet each other. Many hoped to find some rare or new Roxette stuff in record stores. Unfortunately, in Stockholm, there were only “standard” albums, compilations of old songs, or CD-singles available.

  You could not get, for example, the maxi version of the M&T&H single, and it was nearly impossible to find the maxi version of other singles. Each store gave answers like “already sold out” or “sold out yesterday.” It seems that due to the high number of fans in the capital of Sweden, only the first few were able to get something special.
