LIVE CONCERT 2012
- 6 MARCH 2012Singapore Indoor Stadium
Which Swedish band was more successful in America than ABBA? Yes, the Swedish band that had more number ones and Top 10 hits than ABBA in the US (and once featured on their very own postage stamp) are coming back to Singapore in 2012. Live Nation and Lushington Entertainments are thrilled to announce that legendary pop duo Roxette are coming to Singapore to play a very special live show at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Tuesday March 6, 2012. Roxette have numerous massive hits in Singapore including It Must Have Been Love, Joyride, Dressed For Success, The Look, Listen To Your Heart, Fading Like A Flower, Dangerous, How Do You Do and Sleeping in My Car.
Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle who make up Roxette, came out of Sweden in the late ’80s. Their game was pop and their mission was to conquer the world. With 33 chart-busting singles and total record sales of 75 million, it seems safe to say “mission accomplished”. Except for one thing - it ain’t over yet! Biding their time during Marie Fredriksson’s recovery from her brain tumour in 2002, the band has gradually staged a comeback that has climaxed with the release of their new album Charm School and their current world tour. After an extremely successful start in Russia, Roxette went on to sell out concerts throughout Europe, South America and South Africa over the last year with more than one million tickets sold at 70 concerts. After such an overwhelming response in the rest of the world, Roxette have decided to extend the tour to include a very special show in Singapore. “The concerts have been amazing so far,” says Per Gessle. “Marie and the band are in top shape and the response has been incredible. And the way the new album has been received is great. We feel very fortunate and look forward to a very exciting year!”
Roxette’s brand new album Charm School was released by EMI earlier this year. Charm School went straight to number one on the German, Czech and Swiss album charts the week of its release and is heading for platinum status in Sweden. With a catalogue of mega hits including It Must Have Been Love, Joyride, Listen To Your Heart, How Do You Do, Sleeping In My Car, Dressed For Success and The Look, this is set to be one of THE live events of the 2012 calendar. Roxette last toured Singapore in 1995 on their Crash! Boom! Bang! world tour.
