Swedish pop-rockers Roxette are set to play in Auckland next year.

At the height of their fame in the late 1980s, Per Gessle and Marie Fredriksson - whose hits include Listen To Your Heart, The Look and It Must Have Been Love - visited New Zealand for a promotional visit but never performed.

Their 2012 concert was cancelled when Gessle fell ill during his flight from Stockholm.

The duo vowed to return to play their greatest hits.

After their 2011-12 world tour took them around the globe twice, playing to more than 1.5 million people in 46 countries, they are ready to do it all again, launching their Australasian tour in Auckland at the Vector Arena on February 7.

"We are beyond thrilled to finally have the opportunity to perform in New Zealand, a stunning country with beautiful fans who have remained some of our most loyal supporters over the last 25 years," Gessle said.

"Marie, the band and I are ready and raring to go with a brand-new show full of our best hits and a few surprises."

Tickets go on sale at noon on Tuesday, May 27.
