  ★ Latest news

Roxette finished their world tour, called Roxette Live – The 30th Anniversay tour. Another tour seems unlikely as Marie just declared that touring takes too much energy.

A new album is coming June 3: “Good Karma”. The first single has been released already: “It Just Happens”.

  ★ 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. On April 8, “It Just Happens”, the first single of their forthcoming album “Good Karma” was released.

Roxette Diaries: Egmond’s take

It doesn’t help that 2016 is a special milestone in the lives of Per, Marie and the massive legion of Roxers that loved them since 1986, or in most cases, 1989. Either way, after absorbing the Roxette Diaries (may I add VOLUME 1 since by the end of this review you’ll be demanding VOLUME 2…) mere days after its international release, it’s time to sit back and review it properly.

The plan is to stay in Sweden for a couple of months in 2017, the shows will be placed in Per Gessle’s Hotel Tylösand in Halmstad and the title will be… drum roll… “The Daily Roxette show”.
