中国歌迷对罗克塞特乐队（Roxette）的很多歌曲都耳熟能详，比如《那一定是爱》（It Must Have Been Love）,《快乐旅程》（ Joyride）, 《有款有型》（The Look）, 《倾听你的心》（Listen To Your Heart） 和《鲜花般凋零》（Fading Like A Flower）。他们的歌曲曾被许多港台歌手翻唱过，如：谭咏麟（《你知我知》- 翻唱《The Look》, 《冷傲的化妆》- 翻唱《Dangerous》），黎明（《我的灰姑娘》- 翻唱《Joyride》），关淑怡（《这是我心里对白》-翻唱《Listen To Your Heart》）等。
Roxette Touring Back To China
The Brand New World Tour After Long Wait Of 17 Years
March 12, Beijing – MasterCard Center
March 14, Shanghai Grand Stage
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 China in 2012. Gehua-LiveNation is thrilled to announce that legendary pop duo Roxette are coming to China to play two very special live shows at the MasterCard Center （fomerly the Wukesong Arena）in Beijing on Monday March 12, 2012 and at Shanghai Grand Stage on Wednesday March 14, 2012 with tickets going on sale soon.
Roxette have numerous massive hits in China including It Must Have Been Love, Joyride, The Look, Listen To Your Heart and Fading Like A Flower. Their hits were also covered by Hong Kong superstars such as Alan Tam (The Look, Dangerous), Leon Lai (Joyride) and Shirley Kwan (Listen To Your Heart)
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 over 70 concerts. After such an overwhelming response in the rest of the world, Roxette have decided to extend the tour to include two very special shows in Beijing and Shanghai.
“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 last 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, Dressed For Success and The Look, this is set to be one of THE live events of the 2012 calendar.
Roxette last toured Beijing in 1995 on their Crash! Boom! Bang! world tour. A year when we still didn’t quite know what a “Spice Girls” was or what the World Wide Web was all about. And Facebook!? What was that? Mark Zuckerberg was just an 11-year-old kid possibly playing games on his Atari computer. Maybe you were too busy in 1995 watching Beverly Hills 90210, Friends, or Seinfeld to see Roxette? Or maybe mum and dad just didn’t let you go? So grab all your friends, listen to your heart and get yourself dressed for success and get ready to join the joyride with Roxette in 2012!
