Roxette - Concert in Cordoba (Argentina) 07.04.2011

Without any doubt, with the best acoustic on the South American tour, the Orfeo Arena received a more tranquil public than in Buenos Aires, a less hectic Roxette and a  Marie with some voice problems. But the show was equally brilliant.

Marie, showing a weariness after 4 shows in a row, fumbled on the lyrics of some songs, but the audience, very generous sang  whenever she lacked voice or lyrics. This has already occurred in the opening song, to her displeasure (demonstrated with a head disapproval for herself.) Realizing this, the crowd sang louder and applauded heavily. At the end of the chorus, she acknowledged the crowd by saying: "Thanks for helping me!" Someone stated: This woman is a living proof that miracles do happen. Marie Fredriksson is an example of resilience, strength and determination.

Built exclusively for concerts with a capacity for 10,000 people, Orfeo has very good acoustics. Finally everyone could hear exactly the sounds that Per Gessle performed during the song "Watercolours In The Rain." There are sounds as deep as the ocean.

The setlist was the same as that from the first night in Buenos Aires. "Stars" has reappeared replacing "Silver Blue".

The intro to "Joyride" was based on a very popular song in Cordoba, of a singer named Mona Gimenez. Christoffer chose to start the song "If Quién Ha Taken Todo el Vino" with a couple of lesser known chords, so it took a while for the audience  to recognize it. Thereafter, the Orfeo came down! Per vibrated relieved!

Halfway through "The Look", the crowd was surprised by Marie saying thank you, and leavingthe stage escorted by Bo Johansson. The band and Per continued to sing until the end. The impression was that the song was extended, because everyone was playing for a long time in front of the drummer Pelle ALSING. To calm the fans, she returned and presented to all wearing a jersey of Argentina national team ( Messi`s shirt ).
