About Per Gessle's Roxette
After the charismatic singer of the group, Marie Fredriksson, announced her withdrawal from the tour because of health problems in spring 2016, shortly before the release of the band’s 10th album, Good Karma , Gessle decided to concentrate on writing material for a solo project that was realized in Nashville in the same year. The recordings were made by long-time Swedish music partners Christoffer Lundqvist, Clarence Ofwerman, Anders Herrlin and Helena Josefsson, combined with a long list of the best American session instrumentalists. The result is Per Gessle’s Roxette, which stretches from pop riffs to big ballads that are still on high rotations on radios around the world. Gessle also promises that there will be several musical surprises at the concerts.
