Marie thanks her fans for their support
STOCKHOLM - The Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet published a message from Marie Fredriksson today in which she thanks all her fans for their support.
Aftonbladet writes: As you may know, Marie has gone through a surgery to remove the tumor she had in her head and now she is on treatment and on sick leave for some months. During all these months, all her fans haven't stopped sending her letters, their best wishes and flowers.
Now Marie wants to thank all of her fans and has chosen to send a message to Aftonbladet. "She really appreciates that people think about her," says Marie Dimberg. "Marie has received a great support from every part of the world… she has a great audience from all over the world who are always very active and involved. These fans have sent a lot of letters and encouraging thoughts," reports Dimberg.
The Daily Roxette has translated the message for our readers:
"Hi everyone! I would like to thank everyone who has sent me warm greetings through Aftonbladet's website after my operation. I would also like to thank you all for the letters, flowers and thoughts - they have been a big support for me.
I am now resting at home, and I am looking forward to the next year. I would like to wish all of you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2003!"
Aftonbladet also reports that Marie is on her way back. She has recently recorded what will be the new Roxette single, "Opportunity Nox," which will be released in February, before Roxette's new album, "The Pop Hits" comes out.
Dimberg also explains that Roxette are planning to shoot a new video. "We are trying to find some new ideas, which we are right now discussing with Jonas Åkerlund," she says.
So far, there are no plans for a new tour, or for solo-albums. "Both Per Gessle and Marie are always writing along with Roxette, and then they release an album when they feel there is time and enough material for it," explains Dimberg.
"Marie will come back when she feels strong enough," adds Dimberg, "and she will take the time she needs."
Marie will celebrate Christmas with her husband and children in Stockholm.
