Roxette is a Swedish soft rock duo consisting of Per Gessle (guitars, vocals, main songwriter) and Marie Fredriksson (lead vocals). They are the second most successful pop group to come out of Sweden, and considering [[Music/{{ABBA}} who's first]], that's no mean feat. Their height of popularity was from the late [[TheEighties 80's]] into the mid [[TheNineties 90's]], mainly because that's when their [[TheUnitedStates U.S.]] popularity faded and they went their separate ways. After a difficult period in the late [[TurnOfTheMillennium noughties]] when Marie struggled with cancer, they announced their reunion and began a European comeback tour.
