Australian fans have been agitating online for a local promoter to bring the pair back since Fredriksson and Gessle reignited Roxette and announced they would embark on a world tour.

Now touring throughout Europe, the shows have been scoring rave reviews with Gessle claiming his singer is “the best I’ve seen her since, hmm, the ’90s”.

He has also revealed they are making a new album with the working title 2Rism, with five songs already recorded and plans to continue putting down extra tracks as they tour.

Tickets for the show will go on sale on August 11.
