The last gig on the Australian leg of the neverending tour was a brilliant one in Perth! A big thanks from Roxette for a fabulous time in Australia - it has been great. Australia salutes Roxette as well, here.
The Australian success continues; Roxette's compilation album from 2006, Roxette Hits!, climbs to #17 on the Australian ARIA album charts this week! This is the first time Rox has been on the Australian top 20 since 1996 and that was with Don't Bore Us Get to the Chorus! which peaked at #10.
On the iTunes pop album charts Hits! is at #5.
