Roxette to play Israel

According to Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle are to perform at Tel Aviv’s Exhibition Grounds on October 22. Roxette is being brought to Israel by producer Shuki Weiss. The first tickets for the concert will be sold online for NIS 295 ($85). The price will later go up to NIS 370 ($107).

“Several months ago I flew to watch a performance of Roxette in Europe and what I saw was the band that continues to grow over the years” says producer Shuki Weiss. “Their communication with the audience is amazing – it’s the best live show there. I was asking myself questions about the vocal and physical abilities of the singer, Marie Fredriksson, after her determined struggle with cancer, but I got to see her victory and her will to conquere the stage is stronger than ever”

Tickets will go on sale at on April 18th.
