  ★ 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 – Back to the Future

PORT ELIZABETH – 5 PM. Friday, 5 February 2016. Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, Port Elizabeth, South Africa. 

I only seriously started thinking about this article in the queue while waiting for the gates to open. I recalled the first time I saw Roxette playing my home town, Port Elizabeth, 21 years ago during the “Crash! Boom! Bang!” tour.

WARSAW – It all begins… Imagine: it’s early July, you are just back from a few concerts and some holidays, googling “Roxette Warszawa” (as the concert in the Torwar Hall, Warsaw, happened less than two weeks ago) and among reviews and photos you find an information that Roxette will cross your country again, just in a couple of weeks. Wow.
