  ★ Latest news

Roxette is going on another world tour, it’s called Roxette Live – The 30th Anniversay tour. The full tour is yet not known, but it will start in Russia October 28 and goes down to Australia in February. More on our tour page. To support the tour, another Greatest Hits album is being released: Roxette XXX – The 30 Biggest Hits

Per is also hinting about a new album, singles or EP to be recorded and published early 2015.

  ★ 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 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.

The Roxette train stops in Helsinki

HELSINKI – A Roxette concert is like a freight train, in both good and bad. The bad thing is that there are no surprise stops. The songs, the arrangements, even the jokes stay basically the same from town to town. On the other hand, the band is like a well-oiled machine that does its job punctually and professionally and you can be certain that you will hear some great pop tunes performed by artists who love their work.
