Roxette documentary on TV4

STOCKHOLM (Updated) - As per usual Swedish TV4 will have a Gessle-related program at the end of the year. This time they will broadcast the brand new documentary "Roxette - 20 år" (Roxette - 20 years), about the 20th anniversary, on December 29 19:30 CET. The half-hour show will be re-run December 31.

Using previously not shown and unique footage from, among others the Gessle family's private camcorder, Roxette's progress from a small band touring the Swedish countryside via the breakthrough with "The Look" in the US, to the big venues in both South Africa and Argentina is shown.

In the documentary Marie and Per tell about the historical gig in China where Roxette as the second western band ever (Wham! was the first) was allowed to perform in Beijing. They also talk about the reunion after Marie's sickness.
