Singaporeans have been gobsmacked by concert announcements — see Michael Learns To Play Singapore — but nothing can prepare you for this.
Concert promoter Mode Entertainment dropped news that pop group AQUA, who took over the radio by storm 20 years ago (feel old yet?) with their ubiquitous hit 'Barbie Girl', resulting in their debut album Aquarium selling 14 million copies worldwide (we heard Cash Converters aren't accepting any more copies).
AQUA will perform November 25th at The Star Theatre, and tickets will go at S$168, S$148, S$128, S$98. In what is becoming a trend, promoters have also announced a VIP package worth S$248, which will entitle VIPs to an exclusive meet-and-greet with the dance and disco stalwarts after the show. Tickets go on sale on June 27th through SISTIC.
Mastercard ticket holders will also have a 5% discount on CAT 2 and CAT 4 tickets.
It should be noted that AQUA tours only for special reasons. While most people use the phrase "once in a lifetime" liberally, AQUA’s penchant for special tours makes this stop in Singapore truly once in a lifetime.
With all things 90s taking a triumphant return in pop culture, it seemed natural that euro-dance would make a comeback.
For now, reminisce over the music video of 'Barbie Girl' that's in higher quality than your pasar malam karaoke VCD:
