Swedish pop duo Roxette are coming to Australia to play a very special live show at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on Friday February 17, next year.
Roxette have topped the charts three times in Australia with singles It Must Have Been Love, Joyride and The Look.
Tickets go on sale on Thursday, August 11.
Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle, who make up Roxette, came out of Sweden in the late ’80s and ended up with 33 chart-busting singles and total record sales of 75 million.
Biding their time during Fredriksson’s recovery from her brain tumour in 2002, the band has gradually staged a comeback that has climaxed with the release of their new album Charm School and their current world tour.
After a successful start in Russia, Roxette went on to sell-out concerts throughout Europe, South America and South Africa over the last year with more than one million tickets sold at 70 concerts.
Roxette will also release of a tailored Australian greatest hits package on August 5 in time for their Australian arrival.
Roxette last toured Australia in 1995 on their Crash! Boom! Bang! world tour.
Joining Roxette Sydney will be 1927, whose 1989 album …Ish is one of the highest selling debut albums by an Australian band.
