ROXETTE TO PLAY FIRST LIVE SHOW IN THE UK FOR 17 YEARS

 
 
Monday 28th March – Live Nation are thrilled to announce that legendary pop duo Roxette are to return to the UK for the first time in 17 years to play a very special live show at London’s Wembley Arena on the 15th November.
Roxette - Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle – cameout of Sweden in the late 80's. Their game was pop, their mission to conquer the world. With 33 chart-busting singles and total record sales 75 million, it’s seems safe to say “mission accomplished”. Except for one thing. It ain’t over yet. Biding their time during Marie Fredriksson’s recovery after her brain tumour operation 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 an extremely successful start in Kazan, Russia and massive response, Roxette have decided to extend the tour in to this fall.
“The concerts have been amazing so far, says Per Gessle. Marie and the band are in top shape and the response has been incredible. And the way the new album has been received is great. We feel very fortunate and look forward to a very exciting year!”
Roxette’s brand new album ”Charm School” will be release in the UK today (28th March) via EMI. It went straight to no 1 on the German, Czech and Swiss album charts the week of the release and is heading for platinum status in Sweden.  The first single “She’s Got Nothing On (but the Radio)” is moving up in a way not seen in almost 20 years – last week it made Top 10 on Germany’s official singles chart. Last time Roxette was Top 10 in Germany was in 1992 with “How Do You Do!”. In the UK, BBC Radio 2 added “She’s Got Nothing On (but the Radio)” to their A list and have made ‘Charm School’ their album of the week. This week the single is the highest new entry at the UK Radio Airplay Chart!
With a catalogue of mega hits, including ‘Must Have Been Love’, ‘Joyride’, ‘The Look’, ‘Listen To Your Heart’, ‘How Do You Do’, ‘Sleeping In My Car’ and ‘Dressed For Success’, this is set to be one of THE live events of the 2011 calendar.
