Roxette to headline “Night of the Proms” concert series

Roxette will be the headline act this fall for "Night of the Proms," an event that began as a student party and has evolved into a series of concerts performed in three countries: Belgium, Holland and Germany. Roxette will be accompanied by the symphonic orchestra Il Novecento.

  The biographical information on the Night of the Proms website states "The band broke through in the late eighties with numerous hits in the top of the charts. Among them were worldwide hits like "The Look", "Dressed for Success," "Listen To Your Heart," "It Must Have Been Love," "Joyride," "How Do You Do!," "Sleeping In My Car," "Run To You," "Crash! Boom! Bang!," and "Wish I Could Fly." Sixteen years later the band can show impressive sales figures (more than 40 million albums and 15 million singles sold) and look back on some very successfull world tours."

  "Their seductive mix of pop tunes full of irony and obvious "power ballads" today still sound as fresh and catchy as in those days, when their songs first started to get airplay."
