My friend J and I are taking our road trip to see Roxette in concert tomorrow, I cannot wait!
I have been a Roxette fan since about 1988 or 1989 when my sister R bought all of Roxette's singles and albums released on cassette tapes (and the coveted Pearls of Passion album, which was extremely hard to find). I would beg to borrow her purple ghetto-blaster (!!) and tapes frequently. I remember when R's Joyride album got stolen at her 16th birthday party in 1991; Mom, Dad and I bought her the tape for her birthday and she had only had the cassette tape for one day before some loser stole it! (She bought another one immediately).
J and I will be singing along to every single song, rest assured.....in particular, this one (which we both had played at our wedding dances like the good die-hard Roxette fans we are!) That was so cool. And people actually danced to it.
Anyway, I found out another one of my favorite 1980s bands, Glass Tiger, will be Roxette's opening act! We saw Glass Tiger at the Casino a few years ago and they were fantastic.
We are staying at my favorite cousin S's place.....looking forward to my girls weekend!
Have a great weekend everyone!
