Roxette back to Night of the Proms
ANTWERP - Just to confirm The Daily Roxette's previous report that Roxette indeed is back; the following press release was distributed today:
Earlier this year, discussions started about the possibility of Roxette being part of 'Night of the Proms' again. Bearing in mind the frequency of Roxette hits being heard on the radio and the many annual appeals from 'Night of the Proms' fans to try and convince Roxette to be part of the programme, we are all happy to make this announcement!
"We are thrilled to finally be able to attend 'Night of the Proms'. It's gonna be the first time we share a live stage together since 2001 and it certainly feels most exciting to do so in front of the huge 'Night of the Proms' audience. We look forward to performing some of our greatest hits and working together with the big Night of the Proms orchestra, which should fit our music very well." (Marie & Per)
This year’s 'Night of the Proms' can boast of a world first by presenting Roxette’s return on stage, seven years after the first attempt to have the Swedish duo in the show. An icing on the cake for the event celebrating its 25th edition in Antwerp this fall!

Per has been quoted as saying they will play their four U.S. #1 hits ("The Look," "Listen to Your Heart," "It Must Have Been Love," and "Joyride" ) along with "Wish I Could Fly."
