Roxette Announce 2015 Australian Tour

Legendary Swedish pop rockers Roxette have announced their return to Australian stages and they’re getting the news out nice and early so fans can prepare their dancing shoes for a February 2015 tour.

Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle last toured Australia as Roxette in 2012 as a part of a World Tour that saw them play to 1.5 million people in 46 countries. Their Australian leg had the famed musicians playing sold-out arenas across the country for two weeks. Now they’re gearing up to do it all again.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Roxette’s hit single The Look, and Gessle told the Herald Sun they owe their longevity to their vast catalogue of hits, which includes, amongst others, It Must Have Been Love, Spending My Time, Joyride and Listen To Your Heart.

“Today in Top 40 music it’s rare to get to build a catalogue like that,” explains Gessle. “Everyone is famous for 15 minutes, they get a few hits if they’re lucky and then they’re gone. Everyone wants the new thing or the next thing.”

“But we have this great catalogue of songs people grew up to, got married to. There were a lot of hits, sometimes I even forget how many we had.” Roxette’s Australian tour kicks off in February and will feature 80s band Boom Crash Opera as special guests. They will also play two dates as part of the Day on the Green concert series in the Yarra and Hunter Valleys.

Tickets go on sale May 27th via livenation.

UPDATE 04/12/14: Roxette have added a second final Sydney show to their 2015 tour. The newly-announced performance will take place in the Sydney Opera House forecourt on Wednesday, 25th February 2015. Updated tour and ticket details are available below.
