    Singer Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle of the band Roxette arrive at the 50th Anniversary of Bravo Magazine at the Color Line Arena on October 21, 2006 in Hamburg, Germany.

    The managers of 1980s pop sensation Roxette say the Swedish band will reunite for a small European tour starting in October.
     
    D & D Management says Per Gessle and Marie Fredriksson will play live together for the first time since 2001 at the 'Night of the Proms' touring festival in Antwerp, Belgium.

      It will then tour with the festival to a number of sites in the Netherlands and Germany.
     
    Roxette rose to international stardom in the late 1980s with hits such as 'It Must Have Been Love' and 'The Look.' The band stopped performing when Fredriksson was treated for a brain tumor and hasn't returned to stage until now.
     
    In a Tuesday statement the two band members said they looked forward to performing some of their greatest hits again.


    What the El!?! Editorial:

    So are there a bunch of people sitting around wishing that they could hear "The Look," "Listen to Your Heart," and "It Must Have Been Love" live?

    Honestly, "Pretty Woman" is on cable every other day, you can get your Roxette fix then and move on with your life.

    Don't get me wrong I loved Roxette... in the late 80's.

    There are a few bands from the 80's I'd like to see reunite, the music back then was so fun!
