Roxette were supposed to start the last leg of their massive RoXXXette 30th Anniversary Tour on June 3rd. However, singer Marie Fredriksson has been advised by her doctors to refrain from touring and as a consequence all the summer shows are cancelled. Their last performance was to be at the Grand Arena in Cape Town, South Africa on February 8 earlier this year.

“XXX – The Daily Roxette Show”: Tour continues at Hotel Tylösand

+++ The following story was our April Fools Joke for 2016. No word of it is true, except that Pelle likes shorts. +++
The Daily Roxette goes on tour. Well, sort of. As we have heard from a source close to the management, Roxette will continue their XXX tour even after the already announced summer dates. The plan is to stay in Sweden for a couple of months in 2017, the shows will be placed in Per Gessle's Hotel Tylösand in Halmstad and the title will be... drum roll... "The Daily Roxette show". Time to ask The Man a couple of questions...

Roxette rock the Ticketpro Dome

JOHANNESBURG - For me, seeing a Roxette concert in Johannesburg has been a long time coming. I was 9 years old when the Crash! Boom! Bang! tour stopped at Ellis Park Stadium, and for obvious reasons I was not allowed to go.

Warsaw – the awkward front row review

WARSAW - It all begins... Imagine: it’s early July, you are just back from a few concerts and some holidays, googling “Roxette Warszawa” (as the concert in the Torwar Hall, Warsaw, happened less than two weeks ago) and among reviews and photos you find an information that Roxette will cross your country again, just in a couple of weeks. Wow.

Elvefestival: One more time, Europe!

DRAMMEN - Roxers like to call this the Neverending Tour, of course with a twinkle in the eye. For me, besides its fun aspect, the expression also represents a very powerful idea, a mighty thought which, among others, strengthens us in our fan-being, a beautiful scenario filled with love and dedication.

Rox in Drammen, part 1

DRAMMEN - When you write a review about a concert which closes a tour it is easy to get a bit nostalgic, but I don't want mine to be so, and I prefer to fill my words just with positivity, gratefulness and passion, which is what I honestly feel at the end of Roxette's European tour.

Sjöhistoriska: It’s where the water flows…

STOCKHOLM – “Shattered by rain", Marie sang during Roxette's epic ballad “Crash! Boom! Bang!”, while the drops were dancing wildly in the glow of the stage lights. In fact, the heavy rain did not destroy anything that night.

Roxette at home

HALMSTAD - Between the organization of the fans at the gate and the tight security, no one
needed to or was allowed to run to the front row. For the most part, everything was very calm and orderly. Big relief.

London Baby! – RoXXXette @ The O2.

LONDON - My Roxette History: In brief, it's my 4th ever Roxette concert despite being a fan since 1988. My Parents thought me to young to attend the Joyride or indeed Crash! Boom! Bang! World Tours when they hit the UK back in the early nineties. I don't think I ever forgave them for that. I've followed them since 1988 and have amassed a Roxette Collection to be proud of. My latest item being the rare French "Fading Like A Flower" CD Single with the Black Cover. Love it!

Roxette blasts Piazza Grande to bits

LOCARNO - What can I say?? God bless Switzerland! But let's start from the beginning, yes, I mean the beginning for me. Even though I have been a fan for so many years, Locarno has a special place in my heart because it's the place where my dream of seeing Roxette live became true for the first time in 2011.

What’s the deal? A word about Mainz, wind, contracts and fans

The concert in Mainz last night had to be canceled due to strong winds. Or was it because of the stage? What is it all about? And what do you actually get when you buy a ticket, or even 100?
