Roxette were set to perform at the Old Royal Naval College as part of their RoXXXette 30th Anniversary Tour on July 8th. However, singer Marie Fredriksson has been advised by her doctors to refrain from touring and as a consequence all the summer shows are cancelled. 

The band has composed the following messages to fans in order to apologise for the cancellation:

It’s been an amazing 30 years! I feel nothing but joy and happiness when I look back on the Roxette world tours. All our shows and memories over the years will forever be a big part of my life. I’m particularly proud and grateful for coming back in 2009 after my severe illness and to have been able to take Roxette around the globe a couple of more times. Sadly, now my touring days are over and I want to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful fans that has followed us on our long and winding journey.

Marie Fredriksson

The performance was part of the annual Greenwich Music Time series of concerts taking place between the 5th and the 10th of July, the organisers are currently researching possibilities for a replacement act to perform on the 8th of July and information regarding this will be arriving soon.

Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle formed Roxette in 1986 and their debut single was ”Neverending Love”. In April 1989 they became an overnight sensation with ”The Look.” Roxette’s latest single ”It Just Happens” was released on April 8 this year and their 10th studio album ”Good Karma” will be released on June 3.
