  ★ 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 cancel their summer tour: “The joyride on the road is over now – but we sure had fun, didn’t we?”

Roxette were supposed to start the last leg of their massive RoXXXette 30th Anniversary Tour on June 3rd. However, singer Marie Fredriksson has been advised by her doctors to refrain from touring and as a consequence all the summer shows are cancelled. Their last performance was to be at the Grand Arena in Cape Town, South Africa on February 8 earlier this year.

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.

“XXX – The Daily Roxette Show”: Tour continues at Hotel Tylösand

+++ The following story was our April Fools Joke for 2016. No word of it is true, except that Pelle likes shorts. +++
The Daily Roxette goes on tour. Well, sort of. As we have heard from a source close to the management, Roxette will continue their XXX tour even after the already announced summer dates. 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”. Time to ask The Man a couple of questions…

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.
