Merry Roxmas from Marie & Per!
2011 turned out to be something very special indeed. We don’t really know where to start! The ”She’s Got Nothing On”-single that made it all the way to the-4th-most-played-song-in-the-world for a couple of weeks? The Charm School album that felt like the perfect comeback for this young couple? Or The World Tour that kicked off in February? Oh yeah, let’s start there!
No one expected this kind of reception we got from you guys, we couldn’t even dream of filling huge arenas again. Almost 800,000 people came to the shows this year. That’s an awful lot of tickets!
And you know, we say it again and again, nothing would have been possible without the support, friendship, love + affection we get on a daily basis from YOU; The Rox Aficionados all over the world!!! You make things so much easier.
We certainly hope we’ll meet all of you again in 2012. Looks like this tour will have another 65 shows to go before the finale in October. New cities + new countries are in the can as well as some jolly returns to favourite places.
And, hey, as we’re writing this... we’re just wrapping up the recordings of the new T2 – Tourism 2-album. It feels like we’re having a splendid one coming up, recorded while touring, filled with the positive energy from you + from the superb bunch of musicians we’re blessed to work with.
We la-la-la-la-love it! Have a feeling you’re gonna love it too!
So, folks…..have a wonderful xmas + a mighty 2012.
Marie + Per
More 2012 dates!
ROXETTE RETURNS TO SOUTH AMERICA IN 2012
2011 has been an amazing year for Roxette with a fantastic world tour and the great success of the new album Charm School. During the first nine months of their world tour they have played to over 800,000 fans at 79 concerts in 31 countries. Next year Roxette will continue to tour in venues throughout Australia, Europe, Asia, South America and South Africa.
Due to the overwhelming response Roxette received when they visited South America earlier this year, Roxette has decided to return and in April 2012. The band will play in Ecuador, Colombia, Peru, Argentina and Brazil. Tickets will be released soon.
Roxette’s album Charm School was released by EMI earlier this year. Charm School has reached the No. 1 spot in several countries. In March next year a new album called T2- Tourism 2 will be released worldwide.
