Sunday 20 November 2011 – Crash! Boom! Bang! Make some noise because Live Nation are thrilled to announce that due to an overwhelming sell-out-in-thirty-minutes-style response, ultra-80s Swedish pop rock duo Roxette have decided to extend their Australian tour and will perform a third and final Sydney show on Saturday 25 February 2012!
Hello, you fool, Roxette clearly loves you, and has answered your call! The legendary pop duo are ecstatic with the response from their Australian fans and have confirmed the additional date to ensure that no fans miss out.
The show is smack bang in the middle of the world’s most flamboyant celebration of gay pride - Mardi Gras! So if you fancy a break from the sea of fancy floats and outrageous costumes, look sharp and make a bee-line to the Entertainment Centre for some heroic sing-along choruses, karaoke bar anthems and some good old-fashioned rock stagecraft that will bring you to your knees!
If you missed out last time, whatcha gonna tell your mother now? - Let me go...! So grab your tickets, listen to your heart, get yourself dressed for success and get ready for the big time baby as you join the joyride with Roxette in 2012!
Roxette have topped the charts three times in Australia with singles It Must Have Been Love, Joyride and The Look. Look Sharp went to number two on the Australian album charts in 1988. Joyride followed in 1991 also reaching number two. Roxette’s next albums, Tourism and Crash! Boom! Bang!, both reached number 3 on the Australian album charts while their first greatest hits album Don’t Bore Us, Get To The Chorus landed in the Australian top ten in 1995. 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 tour is set to be one of THE live events of the 2012 calendar.
Joining Roxette for these special Australian shows are 1927. Their 1989 album …Ish is one of the highest selling debut albums by an Australian band. 1927’s hit singles If I Could, That’s When I Think of You, You’ll Never Know and Compulsory Hero still remain radio favourites more than 20 years after their release.
