However, the concerts were cancelled as Marie was advised by doctors to stop touring.
She released a statement at the time saying: “Sadly, now my touring days are over and I want to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful fans that [have] followed us on our long and winding journey.”
A statement released by Roxette’s management company said: “Marie leaves us a grand musical legacy. Her amazing voice – both strong and sensitive – and her magical live performances will be remembered by all of us who was lucky enough to witness them.
“But we also remember a wonderful person with a huge appetite for life, and woman with a very big heart who cared for everybody she met. “
They added her husband Mikael Bolyos and her two children Josefin and Oscar “kindly ask for respect in their grief”.
A funeral is set to take place in “silence” with only Marie’s closest friends and family.
