Marie’s tumor to be removed by surgery
STOCKHOLM - The following joint statement was just released to the media:
"Marie Fredriksson has now more or less recovered from her severe concussion. Based on the results of the many tests Marie has gone through, the medical team at the Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm have decided to remove her tumor through surgery. This operation will take place within the next ten days.
This procedure will prevent Marie from working for the remainder of this year which, unfortunately, means that Roxette will have to cancel their participation in the Night of the Proms tour which starts at the end of October. Both Marie and Per hope to be able to join the Proms tour another year.
The forthcoming release of the album “Roxette – The Ballad Hits” will continue as planned. Marie and Per have agreed that Per will carry on working [to promote] the album to whatever extent possible.
Marie Fredriksson wishes to express her sincere thanks for all the encouraging letters, flowers and gifts she's received. She feels a great sense of support from her fans and friends all over the world.
We do hope Marie’s full recovery will be as speedy as is possible and we make yet another plea for respect for the privacy of Marie, her family and friends."
The statement released to the press was signed by d&d Management, EMI Recorded Music AB, and EMA Telstar.
