Full tour schedule includes Spain and Switzerland

UPDATED As we reported earlier, Roxette’s forthcoming “Room Service” tour – reported to feature 33 songs – will premiere in Stuttgart in late September. After touring in Southern and Central Europe, Roxette will visit Russia, Estonia, Finland and their home country Sweden in November. The last concert – at least so far – will be in Gothenburg on November 17th.

  Roxette ended their last world tour in Moscow in May 1995. Exactly six years later, Per and Marie have been in Germany to announce that they will embark on a European tour later this year. With a dozen tour dates in Germany, it made sense for them to announce the tour there, in order to generate coverage in the German press.

  UPDATE – We have now added links to sites offering tickets to Swedish concerts and some of the German concerts.

“We have missed the Roxette concerts so much,” said Marie and Per. “We started out as a live act so being on stage has always been a natural force for us. The recent years we decided to stay at home and raise our kids and lead a pretty low-key life in terms of touring but now it feels definitely right to have a go,” they continued. “We had so much fun playing together again (on the showcase gigs we did when launching the album) so we’re naturally thrilled over our heads to hit the road and meet the fans again.”

  The live band will feature familiar names:

Marie Fredriksson – vocals
Per Gessle – vocals & guitar
Clarence Öfwerman – keyboards
Christoffer Lundquist – bass & vocals
Jonas Isacsson – guitar
Mats Persson – percussion & vocals
Pelle Alsing – drums
