The Swedish pop-duo Roxette gained international success in the end of the 80's thanks to its blend of emotional, energetic and catchy pop and rock music. It consists of Marie Fredriksson, responsible for the lead vocals, and Per Gessle, who is the author of the most of their songs. So far they have released 7 studio albums and numerous compilations, and sold over 75 million records. Their most famous songs are “The Look”, “Listen To Your Heart”, “It Must Have Been Love” и “Joyride”.
After a long break, caused by Marie Fredriksson's difficult recovery after her brain tumor operation, the Swedes are back on stage. Marie and Per will perform a series of live concerts on the Night of the Proms this autumn, and plan to release something new in the end of the year.
