Dear Marie! Thank you for the time of my life! Thank you for the strenght! I will never forget you! I love you forever. Stay proud and strong! Big hugs and kisses. Olli
Dear Marie, all can I say is thank you, thank you and thank you! Thank you for the music, the concerts, the smiles, the hugs and for your amazing voice that guides my life since 1990! You and Roxette are a very important part of my life! I can say that my life is changed since I knew you! That's magic! Can you believe it? I wish you all the best ever! You're an incredible person! Strong, simple, a true warrior woman! A viking woman maybe! Thank you so much! Flávio Penteado Cavalcante
Dear Marie! Thank you very much for the music, you are a strong woman. You showed all the world that there's really nothing between you and your dream: no pain, no obstacles, nothing. Thank you once again, keep on fighting, don't give up, we believe in you.
Dear Marie, it's been already a few days since the news came that you retire from touring. I still can't believe it. I'm so sad. But on the other hand I am more than thankful that you and your voice/music is a part of my life for more than 25 years. Your music gave and gives me so much joy and strength over the years. In good times and bad times. Your strength and wilm to fight is a role model to me. Over the years I was able to attend 14 Roxette gigs plus one of my mist enjoyable and emotional concert nights ever: your solo concert in Stockholm in April 2014. I'm incredibly grateful for all these memories! Thank you so much! Although you are not able to tour anymore, I really hope you will continue making music with your own songs and maybe with Roxette. Love and all the best from Germany!
Tack så mycket Marie för dina smile along this long joyride... for making us happy and make our lives better, singing along with you... also, thank you for making us feel TRO, and return to it... as you said to us in a meet&greet in Mar del Plata: "you should enjoy life day by day, step by step"... tack så mycket! Vi älskar dig since we were 10yrs old childs... och för evigt!
Hej Marie! Jag vill tacka dig för alla underbara minnen du och Per har gett mig. Första minnet är från 87 när IMHBL låg på listan, då gillade jag inte att du sjöng på engelska och frågade min syster om varför du gjorde det. När sedan Look Sharp! Kom ut var jag fångad. The Look var och är den bästa låten jag vet. Åren efter var så spännande, skulle ni klättra i USA eller inte? Varje torsdag köpte jag tidningen för att få veta. Mina kompisar hejade på olika fotbolls eller hockey-lag. Jag tror jag hejade på Roxette. Och jag vann! Bra för en tonårings självförtroende. 1991 i Uppsala såg jag er första gången. Oj så bra det var. När ni kom tillbaka 2001 i Globen så räckte det med att höra introt så förstod jag att Roxette skulle alltid vara min musik. När du blev sjuk var min önskan att du skulle njuta av det du åstadkommit på det sätt du ville och kunde. Att du då valde att dela det med oss Roxers världen runt är helt otroligt. 2012 i Sydney såg jag er. Jag åkte till Australien tack vare er. Helt fantastiskt. Sista konserten blev i Dalhalla i somras. Tror jag såg er minst 20 Gånger. Bara dig har jag sett 1992, 2000 och 2014. 2009 när du sjöng tro på gaygalan var nog det mest känslomässiga. Ryktet gick om att du var där, jag satt som på nålar. Skulle Marie Fredriksson sjunga för oss? Helt otroligt! Vi har träffats en gång, efter Tack för musiken. Det var ett fint möte, nervöst för mig. Tack Marie för Musiken och jag hoppas på mer trots att det inte blir mer turnéer. Ta väl hand om dig!
What to say... I could spend the rest of my life talking about how much you mean to me... what happened in my life thanks to you... how inspirational you turned out to be... how much of a role model you are... You've been with me since 1992 in this rollercoaster my life has been, with its ups, downs, twists and turns. It's been a winding road and you were there... always, with me. I thank you for everything you did unaware you were doing. I know you are as humble as someone can be. I know that sometimes you, yourself cannot believe how big you are... I hope one day you can understand and really see that YOU ARE HUGE ma'am... HUGE for many... many more than you could have ever dreamt of. You move people... And I could go on and on... If I had one wish... it would be to one day be able to really express what you mean to me... love you and God bless you. I am proud to have known you, and i am proud you were my idol.
Dear Marie, I am a 28 year old woman with a grade 3 glioma (anaplastic astrocytoma) at the back of my brain. I know exactly what you're going through. Living with this condition is so hard and I just want to thank you for having been the warrior and for giving me the inspiration that you do for me being in the same situation as you. Thank you for all the irreplaceable talent you have brought into this world. Sending you so much love from Norway, Your admirer for always, Tanja
Thank you for the happines you brought to my life since The Look. Send you all my love.
Dear Marie This is so incredibly hard. I can hardly put my thoughts down, because it still is somewhat unreal. It has been 25 years since I went to my very first Roxette Concert ever back in 1991. Back then I lost my heart forever to Roxette and to your incredible voice. Hardly any artist had the ability to send shivers down my spine like you did. Your voice, your music literally saved my life so many times. Noone actually could have expressed my feelings any better than you did. Especially the album "Den ständiga resan" helped me through the hardest times of my life. I am so grateful that I had the chance to meet you in 2014/2015 as it had always been my biggest wish ever since I became a Fan. It was a true miracle that you made it back to the stage and I am deeply in awe for you and your achievements. That your body finally winds you down and makes you stop touring is for sure something that I wished never would happen. It tears me apart, it kills a bit of my inner child and throws a dark cloak over all the lovely memories. I know, it is just "some shows that got cancelled". But No! it isn't only that! It is tearing apart a part of my identity, my life-saver, my light-house, my sun on cloudy days. Someone just took away my blanket and now I'm lying here, vulnerable, bare and naked. But my feelings are peanuts in comparison to what all this might mean to you. Thanks to you I grew strong and I know I will cope with it. And it is basically because you are such a role-model to me. Your strength and will to fight always inspired me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the years I was able to see you perform and listening to you and the band. Thank you so much for joining the joyride of my life. Love you always and forerever
Dear Marie! I have been a big fan since 1989! I decided to start taking singing lessons after I heard and saw you performing live! The way you delivered Roxette songs on stage, your voice, your movements made them even more special and dear to me creating this way unique memories that will stay in my heart as long as I am alive. I travelled throughout Europe to see you and Per live and had unforgettable moments! I remember one Prague show during the Room Service tour when standing in the front row with my camera and you looked and smiled at me while singing and provided the possibility to take a great photo! Thank you, thank you, thank you for all these years - you have changed our lives forever!!
Someone said the joyride is over in my opinion it just started. You made the miracle of surviving and of returning back to the music business with tours and albums. Tours might be over but your voice and your music will last forever. I've been able to see you playing live back with roxette more times that the ones I could ever imagine. So thanks for all the joy you bought us, thanks to Per for being there beside you and making the magic happened again. Because the magic happens every time you both get together! I don't know what the future will bring I just hope that it will be the best for you and you family.
Marie, first of all I want to thank you for all these years of live performances, especially the last tours, knowing the huge effort it has been for you. It is has been uplifting to hear your voice live. Roxette shows and your last solo tour have been a complete experience, a unique opportunity for meeting you, the band and other fans, all becoming a big family and making friends for life. We still have the hope that you will continue singing live, even it is just a small show now and then in Sweden, but even if that might not happen we still have the memories and friends that will stay forever, plus your records, including live recordings and videos. I hope that given the circumstances you will continue making music and manage to have a life as normal as possible, even if you will not make any big tours anymore. We love you!
Dear Marie, Thank you so much for all the joy you’ve brought to our life during the last 30 years! With your presence, your magical voice and all your songs that have been in my life since I was a child… It’s hard to describe what you mean to me.. but THANK YOU for all the songs, the music… your voice, your magical eyes on us, and all those moments you’ve made so special for us during these years… thank you for all this time!. If you could be described as a word.. that would be STRENGTH!! Your only presence on the stage gives us so much power and energy!!! 🙂 During these years I’ve made lots of international rox-friends. They form part of my life, with all the travelling, the planning, and enjoying the shows… and that small talk that has made and makes us having great times together! Thank you so much for all of this!! Roxette has been for us in our travelling plans during the last years… You have made possible to us to travel around the world (following you!). Thank you for all this travelling!!! It was incredible to see you on stage again!! You have so much power!! I’ve read your biography and I know (or well… at least I can imagine…) how hard has it been to you during all these years! Thank you so much for being back! I think that you deserve to take it easy, so please take care of yourself! You are our queen!! I can only say: ¡GRACIAS! We love you!! Alex Usero (Spain)
Thank you, Marie for always giving your very best and being the person you are! You are a beautiful soul with incredible talent. A very honest person with so much love inside you which radiates through your voice, music and whole artistry. You are very special and such a big gift for us! Your music, especially your Swedish songs bring me so much comfort. When I hear your voice it's like "coming home". You inspire me in so many ways and I'm very grateful for that! I'm very lucky that I had the chance to meet you several times. 25 years ago, I was just 12 when I became a fan of you and 13 when I first met you and went to my first concert. It was a dream come true! I will never forget the happiness I felt and your very kind attitude when we met. Thank you for the beautiful memories! I will miss you from the stage but I understand your decision and I know how hard it was for you to make it. I wish you good health and all the happiness in the world! I hope to see you again sometime, somewhere.... because life is not complete without you! 🙂 I love you very much: Adri
Tack Marie för alla detta år du har fått mig att drömma varje gång jag har sett dig på scenen, varje gång jag har hört dig att sjunga. Tack för alla gånger du har lett när du har sett mig på första raden på konserterna. Tack för vara en inspiration. Du har betytt och fortfarande betyder mycket för mig. Kram /Rosa Planas
I hope this message is in time to get through to Marie. So glad a freind introduced me to Roxette when Dressed for Success was out. The performances (Joyride, Crash, Boom & Bang & 30th Anniversairy) were just immense and we loved having you back in London at the O2 last year. We certainly did try and raise that roof and even more fantastic was that it was on a monday night to! I was buzzing for the next week afterwards. Thank you for the memories and for coming back last year. Both you and Per are hugely talented people and have achieved so much . Keep well and please keep us posted.
Dear Marie, thank you so much, i had seen the last european tour, i met you just after the concert, i touched you! took picture together!!, i am so Happy thank you again
Hi Marie, thank you for 30 years Roxette. Wish you the best
