Marie’s live comeback

STOCKHOLM - Yesterday Marie performed live at Café Opera's Aids Gala "Kick Aids Out". Marie sang Aretha Franklin's "I never loved a man like I loved you", a song that she also performed back at Roxette's MTV unplugged in 1993. "I've always loved that song so it felt so right to do it tonight!" Marie says." Micke adds "I suspect she means me, this is so big for us to be back on stage again!" Yesterday's mini concert was very special as it was Marie's first public appearance since she was diagnosed with cancer. Afterwards Marie exclaimed "I feel so great tonight, I'll have me a pint of beer!"

  Per Gessle has said that he'd love to take Roxette for another spin if Marie is up for it. Now the first step has been taken.

  "Kick Aids Out" was held for the first time ever yesterday. The goal is to spread aids information in southern Africa.
