As it is Sunday in Australia already, so we have a glimpse of what Australian fans will be able to read in tomorrow’s edition of Herald Sun – there is an interview with Per Gessle and – yes – another concert announcement – this time Melbourne for 18th February, 2012.

“I’m a melody guy,” Per says. “I’ve tried to experiment with beats and grooves and basslines, but at the end of the day, I don’t feel comfortable with it. It’s just in my nature.”

Today, 25 years after their first single was released, Roxette are overseeing a few hits of their own. They are on a world tour that will play to one million people and reaches Australia in February.

“I think Marie needed to do Roxette to prove she can do it,” Gessle says. “She is a survivor and this is a big victory for her. I see every week of this tour how she grows and gets more confident.

>> Roxette, Rod Laver Arena, February 18. Book it: 132 849 (from August 29).

We were also informed that there is a chance for Perth and Brisbane concerts. Stay tuned for more confirmations!
