Formed in 1986, the duo became an international act in the late 1980s, when they released their breakthrough album Look Sharp! Their third album Joyride, which was released in 1991, became just as successful as its predecessor. Roxette went on to achieve nineteen UK Top 40 hits and several US Hot 100 hits, including four US number-ones with "The Look," "Listen to Your Heart," "It Must Have Been Love," and "Joyride." Other hits include "Dangerous," "Fading Like a Flower," "Dressed for Success," and "The Centre of the Heart." Before coming together to form the duo, Fredriksson and Gessle were already established artists in Sweden, with Fredriksson releasing a number of solo albums and Gessle being the lead singer and songwriter of Gyllene Tider, which had three No. 1 albums. On the advice of the managing director of their record label, they came together to record "Neverending Love," which became a hit single in Sweden. After the release of Don't Bore Us, Get to the Chorus!, a greatest hits record, the duo took a hiatus from the mid-1990s before returning with the albums Have a Nice Day (1999) and Room Service (2001). They continued to chart in other territories, mainly in Europe and Latin America, where they earned various Gold and Platinum awards until the beginning of the new millennium. In 2002, the duo took a break from recording and touring when Fredriksson was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Gessle went on to release solo albums and reunited with Gyllene Tider before Roxette took to the stage together again for the first time in 8 years, in 2009, during Gessle's European Party Crasher tour. In 2011, they released Charm School, their first studio album in ten years. This was followed by Travelling a year later. Their songs "It Must Have Been Love" and "Listen to Your Heart" continue to receive wide radio airplay, with both singles recently receiving awards from BMI for achieving five million radio plays. They have sold an estimated 75 million records worldwide, with over 10 million in certified units from Germany, the US and the UK, achieving gold and platinum certifications for Joyride and Look Sharp! in all three regions

Helena von Zweigbergk (journalist and author) and Fredrik Belfrage (journalist and Tv & Radio host) talking about ”Kärleken till livet”, the Marie Fredriksson biography, written by Helena in collaboration with Marie, at the Göteborg book fair on Saturday the 26th of September 2015. The book will be released in Swedish on October 7th. 2015. Together with Per Gessle, Marie is Roxette! The talk is in Swedish so here goes for a rough translation: At first Fredrik is introducing Helena and he has trouble pronouncing her last name correctly, but she happily corrects him. He then asks when she and Marie met the first time; - The first time I met her was many years ago, I have interviewed her on 2 occasions, the first before she got ill and then you could really tell she didn’t like at all to do interviews. We did have fun but you could tell she had her guards up. The 2nd time she was very marked by her illness and it was very difficult to bond, she had difficulties talking and finding the words, so when her manager Marie Dimberg called me and asked if I would write a book together with Marie, I was very hesitant and thinking if it would even be possible? What kind of book would it be, I don’t know, I was a little uncertain. But I went to her house and immediately I felt I had to write this book, because Marie was so clear and powerfull in her wish to do this. “it has to be spot on, no nonsense, I just want to tell how it has been” Fredrik: "Marie was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2002 and how Marie is today?" -yeah, I spoke to Marie this morning and asked her; what do you want me to say to the audience today? “say that I’m very fine and we had so much fun!” Marie is very adamant to not sound too gloomy and heavy, but she has trouble, she is marked by her illness. She has a foot that bends which makes it difficult for her to walk, she has difficulties reading, she has difficulties writing and she is very sensitive towards stressful situations around her, she has to have calm and quiet around her. for the rest of the translation follow this link: https://www.facebook.com/christina.tholander/posts/10153549070166480
