Roxette reunites for European tour

STOCKHOLM – The managers of 1980’s pop sensation Roxette says the Swedish band will reunite for a small European tour starting in October.

D & D Management says Per Gessle and Marie Fredriksson will play live together for the first time since 2001 at the “Night of the Proms” touring festival in Antwerp, Belgium.

It will then tour with the festival to a number of sites in the Netherlands and Germany.

Roxette rose to international stardom in the late 1980s with hits such as “It Must Have Been Love” and “The Look.” The band stopped performing when Fredriksson was treated for a brain tumour and hasn’t returned to stage until now.

In a statement Tuesday, the two band members said they looked forward to performing some of their greatest hits again.
