ROXETTE are set to head to Australia to play a special gig in Sydney at the Entertainment Centre on February 17. It has been 17 years since we have seen the popular Swedish group on our shores, the most successful to come out of Sweden since ABBA.
Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle have given the world a list of hits, including The Look, Listen To Your Heart, Joyride, Fading Like A Flower, It Must Have Been Love, Dressed For Success and Dangerous! Marie has had a troubled recent past when she was diagnosed with a brain tumour, she has undergone rehab and then took time out to get back with Gessle and release the new album Charm School. At this stage, Sydney is their only destination for a tour stopover, it’s a shame as Melbourne would really love to see the group rock the cores of Rod Laver Arena!
SURELY there are more than 20,000 Roxette fans out there to warrant a Melbourne show announcement? I ask the people of the world to get behind me on this one! PLEASE!
