Emma and myself went to see Per Gessle in Amsterdam.
Both of us have been Roxette fans for many years, and we always regretted not ever having seen them live.
It had started to look like we never would, after Marie’s cancer, it didnt look like they would ever perform as Roxette again, its been 7 years since the last album and tour.
However, to our delight, it was rumored and then confirmed by Per on his Twitter, that Marie would very likely make an appearance at one of his shows. This turned out to be Amsterdam, and how fortunate we where to be there!

I made lots of video too (link here):
An amazing night. A small intimate crowd of true fans, only about 500 of us. Considder that for a moment when you realise that Roxette would play to a crowd of 100.000 during their hay day.
Marie was obviously not used to being on the stage, but she warmed up and for 2 songs, Roxette was back again. We will be seeing more of them this year, they are a mainline act on the Night of the Proms
As you can see in the slideshow, me and Emma got our favorite album books signed, and I filmed Emma meeting Per, so check out the playlist above.
