    I'm a big fan of both these bands, but their material is not always easy to find out here (they have a big following here, but the record labels seem to disagree, heh). So, I'm hoping someone in Sweden (or anywhere in Europe, really) can help me out.

    I have Roxette's "Tourism" video concert on VHS, but that one's about to turn to dust. And one of the crown jewels of my collection, a tape of Ace of Base's live show at the 1996 Viña del Mar festival (where they absolutely stole the show), was lost during a move. I know both of these shows can be found in bootleg form, but I was hoping for something legit, not only for the obvious legal resons, but also because any official release is bound to be of much higher quality than the VHS-sourced stuff out there.

    I've seen a DVD featuring Roxette's music videos, and a VHS tapeof AoB's videos, but nothing in the way of live shows. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    I saw this in the import DVD section at QED Laser Entertainment in suburban Chicago. I don't know the price or the region coding on it (I would guess it's a R2 since they were always more popular in Europe than here in the US). They don't have a website, but you can contact them at
    [email protected] . Otherwise, try the UK Amazon or HMV.co.uk

    Amazon UK doesn't carry it, but I'll contact QED and see if I they'll make an int'l sale. Thanks! [​IMG]

    I know a few swedish sites that have dvd:s with those groups, but they do not ship outside Sweden or the European Union. I think it´s hard to find a swedish site that ships to South America.

    But you could try these sites that ships to Venezuela.

    Neither of these are live shows though. I can´t find any dvd with Ace of Base other than on a swedish site that doesn´t ship outside EU and some french sites, but I don´t speak french.

    Maybe you can use these Brazil sites that have live dvd:s with Roxette, but I don´t know where they ship, because I can´t understand the language.

    You can also try this site that ships to Venezuela:

    I know I said all I wanted were live shows, but wow... I couldn't resist the compilations :b I'll need help with the Brazilian sites (my Portuguese is about as good as my Swedish [​IMG]), but I think I'll be able to do business with them too.

    That takes care of Roxette. Now I'm off to continue the hunt for AoB material [​IMG]

    Thanks so much, Peter [​IMG]

    Ricardo,

    just to warn you, the Roxette disc is one of those Magazine DVDs that are being discussed on the Brazillian DVD thread. I've never tried this disc myself, so beware as the quality of this can be pretty bad. If you want more info on this matter, check out the thread.

    If you need any help with the language and other stuff, just shoot the question.
