Eskobar to support Roxette

Roxette started 2015 with a higly acclaimed tour in Australia and New Zealand and now they’re only weeks away from kicking off the European leg of the ”XXX – The 30th Anniversary Tour”. We are now very happy to announce that the Swedish band Eskobar will join the tour as Special Guest.

 This tour, together with the release of their new album later this year and their hailed single ”Untrap Yourself” from last year, marks Eskobar’s long awaited comeback after a few years in the quiet.

 Eskobar’s latest album ”Death In Athens” was relesed in 2008 and since then we haven’t heard much from this Swedish duo, until now. The single ”Untrap Yourself” that was released at the end of last year gives us a fantastic hint of what is about to come as they finally release their new album later this year.

Eskobar, probably most known for their super hit single ”Someone New” featuring Heather Nova, has gained a true fanbase over the years throughout Europe.

On May 10th the "XXX - The 30th Anniversary Tour" starts in will visit 35 cities in Europe before leading up to Roxette’s 30th anniversary in 2016.

Roxette brings back memories in Australia

Last night Roxette kicked off their 2nd part of the XXX 30th Anniversary Tour at Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Australia. The crowd was ecstatic and the magic night couldn't be described better than Natalie Bochenski did in Brisbane Times/The Sydney Morning Herald:

The fact that Marie Fredriksson not only survived years of treatment but wanted to return to stage is a tribute to not only her rock god status but her human being status. … Her voice seemed to get stronger with every song, allowing her to deliver the biggest ballad of them all, Listen to Your Heart, with the force of a viking.

Each song brought back memories of the 90s - school discos, dancing, sleepovers, best friends, crushes, little broken hearts and defiant young minds. … Worshipping at the feet of the gods Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle, the girls of the 90s transformed the BEC into one big bedroom for everybody to dance around, with smartphones replacing hairbrush microphones.

Read the full article here.

The 10th of May the European tour opens in Milan in the already sold out arena Teatro Arcimboldi. This tour will conclude during Roxette’s 30th anniversary (2016) and has therefore been named “XXX - The 30th Anniversary Tour”.

Dear Roxers

On Saturday Feb 7th we’ll kick off the 2nd part of the XXX 30th Anniversary Tour in Auckland, New Zealand and our plan is to continue touring for quite a while. Hope to see y’all shakin’ your booties at the shows.

New Roxette-music is also coming up before you know it. Stay tuned for an irresistable excess of chords and choruses, folks!

If you’re into what we’re doing on a daily basis please follow us on Facebook. It’s free and in color.

Lots of love from Per & Marie.

Merry X!

Dear Roxers, thanks for an overwhelming 2014!

Not only did we start the Rox XXX-tour in style, but also managed to squeeze in some minutes to do a fab Marie solo-tour + release a couple of PG lyrics/drawings/diaries/nonsense-books, a PG demo CD-box as well as starting up a brand new Roxette album. And that was before breakfast!

See y’all next year, full speed ahead!

Merry X + Happy New 2015!

Love from Marie & Per
