Arguably the biggest pop/dance crossover acts of the 90’s, AQUA are making their long awaited return to Australia this summer to perform all of the number one hits that made them a household name the world over and saw them sell in excess of 33 million albums and singles.
With songs like “Barbie Girl” – which was a massive number 1 hit in the UK and Europe despite a lawsuit from Barbie’s manufacturer Mattel – “Doctor Jones” and “Lollypop (Candyman)”, sweet-toothed Australian pop fans embraced Aqua, making this country one of the most successful markets for the group. Featuring the original line-up of vocalists Lene Nystrøm and René Dif, keyboard player Søren Rasted and Claus Norreen on guitar, Aqua are set to rekindle their Australian love affair by bringing the pure pop delight they are famous for to life right across the country.
In Australia Barbie Girl remained at the very top of the ARIA charts for three solid weeks but as the group started to stretch themselves musically the cracks slowly appear and in 2001 the band suddenly split before reconvening in 2007 on release of their greatest hits album. Now in 2011 AQUA are back with a brand new album Megalomania and a renewed desire to bring their music to fans live around the world.
