  ★ Latest news

Roxette is currently on another world tour, called Roxette Live – The 30th Anniversay tour. The full tour is yet not known, but it started in Russia October 28, 2014 and went down to Australia in February 2015. More on our tour page. The tour continues in Europe in May. To support the tour, another Greatest Hits album is being released: Roxette XXX – The 30 Biggest Hits as well as a new version of the RoxBox.

There will be a new single released in April and an album “likely in October.”

  ★ Biography

Per Gessle & Marie Fredriksson are Roxette. Roxette formed in Sweden in 1986 and broke thru world wide in March 1989 when the single “The Look” went to #1 in the US. Roxette had 4 US #1s and 2 #2s between 1989 and 1991; “The Look,” “Dangerous,” “Listen to Your Heart,” “It Must Have Been Love,”  “Joyride” and “Fading Like a Flower.” In 1994 things got bad between Roxette and their record company in the US, therefore there has been little to no Roxette in that part of the world since. The rest of the world has had the pleasure of more hits since though. In 2001 Marie was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which she fought and survived. Roxette was on a hiatus until 2009 when Marie came on stage with Per on his solo tour performance in Amsterdam, Holland. Since then they have been on a major world tour and released two albums; Charm School and Travelling.

  ★ Recent releases

Roxette released a special edition 7″ of The Look  in April 2014 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the hit. There was also a Blu-Ray/CD released named Roxette Live – Travelling the World  in December 2013. The latest studio album release was Travelling in 2012.

Roxette in Perth

PERTH – one of the most isolated cities in the world. You can fly to another country faster than flying from the east coast to Perth, but Roxette have always visited here when they have toured Australia. Even when Perth was between arenas and they had to play a smaller and not so great venue in 2012, they still came. Perth has often missed out on great bands but never have we missed out on Roxette. Hats off for that.

Roxette – a kiwi perspective

AUCKLAND – I was 12 years old when “The Look” became a hit in New Zealand. It was quite risqué back then and my rather conservative parents would not let me listen to what Dad called ‘jingle jangle’ music, which was basically any form of music that wasn’t classical.
