2 min read

(UK) Currently touring arenas full of cheering fans in Russia, The Baltics and Finland, Roxette today announced a one-off UK show at The O2, London on Monday 13th July 2015 as part of their European tour which begins in May 2015. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 14th November. Click here for more information.

It has been 25 years since Roxette’s breakthrough single ”The Look” entered the #1 position on the US Billboard Singles Chart (March 1989). ”Listen To Your Heart”, ”It Must Have Been Love” and “Joyride” also became #1 songs in the US, which helped establish Roxette as one of the biggest pop bands of our time.

Roxette have sold over 75 million albums – a number which increases everyday. With their impressive collection of hits, the duo ruled the charts throughout the 90’s and well into the 00’s.

After a long break, during which Marie Fredriksson recovered from cancer, Marie reunited with Per Gessle in 2011. With the new album “Charm School” and the single “She’s Got Nothing On (But The Radio)” Roxette once again occupied the world’s top charts. The tour that followed this album took them around the world twice, and they performed for 1,5 million people during 153 concerts.

In October this year, Roxette and their band kicked off a brand new tour in Russia, The Baltics and Finland. In February 2015, the tour will continue in Australia and New Zealand for another seven arena concerts. Today Roxette proudly announce that they have added several European dates, with the tour which opens in Milan and will be followed by 29 concerts in 18 different countries. This tour will conclude during Roxette’s 30th anniversary (2016) and has therefore been named “XXX The Anniversary Tour”.
