Roxette Announces 2025 South African Tour!


Get ready to dust off your dancing shoes and crank up the volume because Roxette is coming back to South Africa! Five years after the heartbreaking loss of Marie Fredriksson, the legendary Swedish pop duo will return to the stage in 2025 with "ROXETTE IN CONCERT 2025."

While Marie's absence will forever be felt, her legacy and the timeless music she created with Per Gessle will live on. This tour is a celebration of Roxette's incredible songbook, penned entirely by Gessle, who will lead the Roxette band in a heartfelt tribute to their music and their fans.

Joining Per on stage for this special tour will be Swedish singer and megastar, Ms. Lena Philipsson. Gessle emphasizes that this isn't a replacement for Marie, but rather a way to keep the Roxette flame burning bright.

"This is all about my Roxette songs," Gessle says. "I'm not starting a new duo. Marie will always be irreplaceable. I'm extremely proud [Lena] wants to join me in my trek to keep the Roxette legacy alive."

Philipsson, a shining star in her own right, shares her excitement: "I'm both excited and thrilled about embarking on this tour. I really look forward to working with Per – he is a phenomenal songwriter and a neverending musical force."

The Roxette band will be a powerhouse of talent, featuring long-time collaborators Christoffer Lundquist, Magnus Börjeson, Magnus "Norpan" Eriksson, and Dea Norberg, alongside original Roxette members Clarence Öfwerman and Jonas Isacsson.
