On February 11 the unlikely becomes reality. After 25 years as a world-famous act with 70 million albums sold, one of Sweden’s biggest pop groups steps back into the spotlight, a decade after their last studio album “Room Service”.

They do it with “Charm School”, a new album with twelve songs in a style that’s best described as “updated classic Roxette”, from the initial power pop fireworks of “Way Out” to the bittersweet closer “Sitting On Top Of The World”.

Roxette back on Australian TV

Written by Roxwriter on November 15, 2010 to .

Australian Television, MTV Classics, have re-aired the same “Roxette Live in Sydney” special on Australian TV Monday, 15th November at 9pm [AEDT]

The concert special is a condensed version of “Live-Ism” and it aired on sister-Foxtel channel “VH1” back in April and now MTV Classics have given the Roxette special a second prime time airing.

With a Roxette World Tour happening in 2011, was this live Sydney special merely a coincidence or a sign of things to come?

Roxette goes on world tour

As expected after the handful of successful concerts Roxette performed this summer, Roxette has announced they will now embark on a full-fledged world tour.

Roxette is setting off on this long-awaited world tour in 2011. The band kicks off in Kazan, Russia on March 1st and will cover at least five continents during the year. Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle are returning to the world stage full of new enthusiasm after their six sold-out concerts this summer. While Roxette toured Europe in 2001, their last real world tour took place in 1994-95 in conjunction with the “Crash! Boom! Bang!” album.

“If you’d asked me a couple of years ago,  if there would ever be a new Roxette tour I would have very quickly said 'No!',” says singer, guitarist and songwriter Per Gessle. “Knowing what Marie (Fredriksson, lead vocalist) had to go through in recovering from her severe illness, this is not only unbelievable, it seems almost magical to me. It will be wonderful to meet all our audience on Planet Earth again.”

“I’ve been longing and hoping for this since 2002. It makes me incredibly happy to know we’re going to meet our fans all around the world again,” says Marie.

Besides the tour, Roxette fans can look forward to a brand new album in the first quarter of 2011.

Update November 9: Dates for Sofia (Bulgaria) and Bucharest (Romania) have been added.

Update November 10: Latest concert dates and venues as well as ticket information can be found in our Roxette World Tour 2011 Calendar.

Update November 16: Budapest (Hungary) added.

Update November 17: Athens, Greece.

Updated December 3: Stavern, Norway added.

Per and Marie recently finished the recordings of their new studio album. The album is now being mastered in New York. Per also tweeted that he has started recording new demos

Update: According to Roxette's manager Ms. Dimberg there will be no announcement today. Although, tour dates have started to pop up all over the Internet, so it may have to do with that. Per just tweeted that due to things beyond Roxette's control they have postponed the announcement until 10 o'clock tomorrow. Uncertain what timezone Per is referring to…
