Life: Back to Work, Roxette Concert

On the 1st of November I went back to my job after 4 months of parental leave. It takes some time to get back on track but I enjoy it. Marie’s mom is now taking care of Alexander at home and we all get along pretty well.

On Thursday, November 3, Marie and I went to Roxette concert. We had “floor” tickets so we came an hour earlier to get a better place in front of the scene. It was a nice feeling to sing along with some 9600 people in Globe Arena that evening. Pretty much all of Roxette’s greatest hits were played there. The evening would be perfect if there were no group of drunk Swedes trying to get through the crowd to the very front in the middle of the show. In addition, there were two drunk teenage girls near us who were jumping around and stepping on the feet of the people around, really asking for trouble. It’s so hard to deal with people like that. Otherwise, the show was great. It wasn’t Roxette from 90’s but was totally worth going! I really liked that this time the keyboards were back in the songs and not just guitars. I can not name the song that I liked the most but it was kinda touchy when they all gatherer for the last (almost acoustic) song Church of Your Heart. Perfect Day was nearly perfect as well.

Here are the songs that were played:

Dressed For Success
Sleeping in My Car
The Big L.
Wish I Could Fly
Only When I Dream
She’s Got Nothing on (But the Radio)
Soul Deep
Perfect Day
Things Will Never Be the Same
It Must Have Been Love
Opportunity Nox
Fading Like a Flower (Every Time You Leave)
Crash! Boom! Bang!
How Do You Do!
Watercolors in the Rain
Spending My Time
The Look
Listen to Your Heart
Church of Your Heart
