Gyllene Tider/Roxette fan becomes a Swedish knight

NEW YORK - Few Gyllene Tider/Roxette fans have been in a position to share their love of Per's music with others as much as Scott Greenstein, who as the Chief Content Officer of Sirius XM, is the one who approached Per with the idea for the program that was later named Nordic Rox. As a result of the success of the show in promoting Swedish music in North America, he was — just last week — awarded the insignia of Knight of the Royal Order of the Polar Star by Ambassador Ulf Hjertonsson, Consul General of Sweden in New York (acting on behalf of the King of Sweden), at a ceremony at the Swedish residence on Park Avenue.

Per, along with his wife Åsa and son Gabriel, were in New York and attended the event along with other guests who included actor and musician Steven Van Zandt (E-Street Band); director Lasse Hallström and actress Lena Olin; guitarist Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi); professional skateboarder Tony Hawk; singer Peter Jöback; Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers; celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson; and media host Martha Stewart.

With this distinction, Greenstein is recognized for the strides made by the Nordic Rox program in introducing Swedish music and popular culture to American audiences.

Per going shopping through New York

JakubNY spotted Per Gessle and son doing some shopping at the Apple store in NYC. There’s even a picture. If you want to read more about Per’s adventures in US, check out @PartyPleaser’s tweets.

 

"Found some great 80's shoes!! And bought a donut and a hat! And "In search of the lost chord" on vinyl. Moody Blues, anyone?"- says Per on Twitter. He is there trying to get a deal with a record company to release the Party Crasher album in the US. We hope he succedes.

Interview with Gessle on TDR

It took a few days for Per Gessle to resurface again after the Party Crasher tour concluded in Stockholm, but The Daily Roxette has finally managed to get ahold of Per and ask a few questions on everyone's mind:

After this astonishing tour Per, how does it feel?
Ahh, empty!!! It's been the greatest tour ever for me. So intimate, so close with a superb band and a delightful crew, the most pleasant hardcore fans you can ever imagine and a great catalogue of songs to dig into. I've had the time of my life!

Yes, you certainly seemed to have a lot of fun on this tour, and we know you say every tour is the best one so far, how is this one compared to the others?
This is it, man!! And I ain't lyin'!

From what I've heard this tour has been a killer, music-wise, when is the live album out?
Yes, there will most likely be a package with a CD and a DVD put together. The CD is recorded live all over Europe, the DVD is from Cirkus (day one) in Stockholm and the DVD will also include 100 of the most primitive and hilarious clips from the tour (you've probably seen a few on YouTube already). I'm such a generous guy! And, forchrissakes, there will be a double-LP!!! One comes to the point in one's career when it's time to release a live double-album. Like Kiss, David Bowie, and Peter Frampton. This is the point for me!

Per Gessle - Live in Amsterdam

This is the title of a very nice bootleg shared by the Brazilian fans (who are a very big community, by the way). DutchTaper recorded the whole Amsterdam gig (where Per and Marie sang together) and also made the front and back covers. Thank you, guys, for sharing it with us.

You can download the album here:

Download as an archive (ZIP file, 233MB).

Last gig, Marie sings with Per once again

UPDATE: The Look

The 2nd concert in Stockholm was also the last in the Party Crasher tour. Marie joined Per on the stage once again. We don't know how many songs they sang together; until know, only videos of IMHBL have been posted on youtube. Anyway, it's great to see them singing together!

On www.gessle.com, Per states: "see y'all next time (won't be long....)"
