So Pop - Ultimate Throwback Pop Concert Makes Its New Zealand Debut in February 2019

08 October 2018 - 0 Comments

In the summer of 2019, Frontier Touring and Arena Touring will introduce Australia and New Zealand to the ultimate throwback pop experience: So Pop. The concert series will bring the biggest names of 90's pop to the stage in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Auckland and Brisbane for one night only, transforming each venue into the school disco that you’ll wish never ends.

So Pop will blast cities around the country to the glory days of the 90's and 00's: we’re talking cargo pants, butterfly clips, Tazos and enough glitter that you’ll be shimmering for days.

Bringing a line-up of 90's pop royalty down under this summer, the first class of So Pop has collectively sold over 120 million records worldwide and are responsible for some of the biggest party tunes of our time. Catch all these everlasting classics performed live on the one stage during an epic four-hour extravaganza - it’s going to be all that and a bag of chips!

AQUA - The greatest pop phenomenon Denmark has ever seen, the one and only Aqua will grace the stage at So Pop in summer 2019. Bursting onto the scene with 1997’s debut album Aquarium (6x ARIA Platinum), Aqua’s quirky bubblegum pop resulted in undisputed ‘90s anthems Barbie Girl, My Oh My and Turn Back Time.

Their knack for catchy pop tunes resulted in sophomore album hits Cartoon Heroes and Around The World and after a transitional break, the stars returned to the studio for ambitious and bold third album Megalomania . When Aquamania hits our shores, Doctor Jones has the only cure - secure your tickets to So Pop ASAP!

VENGABOYS -If you like to party, get ready to jump on the Vengabus! Dutch Eurodance idols Vengaboys are bringing all their undeniable classics this summer. Winners of the World Music Award for ‘Best-Selling Dance Group’ in 2001, Vengaboys wrote the rules on infectious pop hooks with hits like Boom Boom Boom Boom!!, We Like To Party (The Vengabus) and We’re Going To Ibiza!.

Their eccentric style enraptured fans with each singer offering a unique flare:  Cowboy Donnie, Captain Kim, PartyGirl D’Nice and SailorBoy Robin. Vengaboys’ mesmerising live performance will transport crowds back to the ‘00s and have them dancing like they’re Uncle John from Jamaica - don’t miss out!

BLUE - English O.G. boyband, Blue, will bring their slammin’ moves and party catalogue to So Pop in January 2019. With three UK #1 albums under their belt, Blue’s soulful harmonies and slick production saw them team up with Stevie Wonder and Angie Stone for their own rendition of Signed Sealed Delivered, with Elton John for their brutal love ballad Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word and with Lil Kim for guaranteed party starter Get Down On It.

Blue’s silky vocals will make the ladies swoon when Best In Me is performed live alongside hits All Rise and One Love. Get your posse together, it’s the night you don’t want to miss!

B*WITCHED - Ladies, get in formation as Irish pop queens B*Witched keep those classic dance moves coming. Their 1998 self-titled album debut was a huge charting success, with fresh singles C’est la Vie, Rollercoaster, To You I Belong and Blame It On The Weatherman making B*Witched the youngest girl group to have a #1 in the UK.

Icons of the era, B*Witched are the signature vocals behind the Sabrina the Teenage Witch cartoon theme song, Bring It On’s final dance break with Hey Mickey, and have released their own rendition of ABBA’s Does Your Mother Know after appearing on tribute single Thank ABBA For The Music. When B*Witched land on the So Pop stage, the only option is to Rev It Up.

EIFFEL 65 - Italy’s favourite dance-pop three-piece Eiffel 65 will be taking over So Pop. The world’s best- selling Italian group in 2000, Eiffel 65 exploded onto the scene with their pioneering pitch correction sound on Grammy-nominated single Blue (Da Ba Dee).

1999’s debut album Europop is widely considered a landmark album for the 90's, vital in opening Eurodance to a global audience. Eiffel 65’s hypnotic dance pop rhythms on bangers Move Your Body and Critical are about to turn up the heat at So Pop and you won’t want to miss it!

LOU BEGA — Stylin’ mambo king Lou Bega will win over audiences at So Pop with his fun and passionate live show. Topping the 1999 Australian Singles Chart for eight consecutive weeks with mammoth hit Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit Of…), Bega’s Latin flare will take no prisoners at So Pop. Hits Sweet Like Cola, I Got A Girl, Boyfriend and Bega’s rendition of Tom Jones’ classic Sex Bomb will have audiences on their feet - make sure you’re there!

THE OUTHERE BROTHERS — American hip house and Eurodance duo The Outhere Brothers will be bringing the party vibes down under and you won’t want to miss it. With upbeat boisterous jams Boom Boom Boom, Don’t Stop (Wiggle Wiggle) and Pass The Toilet Paper, The Outhere Brothers are about to take So Pop off the heezy.

2 UNLIMITED - Belgium x Netherlands dance maestros 2 Unlimited join the roster of pop royalty with their high energy tight tunes No Limit, Tribal Dance and Twilight Zone commanding stages across the nation. Innovators of EDM, 2 Unlimited will bring a wave of nostalgia with their contagious quirk, Get Ready for it!

MR. PRESIDENT - Rounding out the A-Class list of music icons is Germany’s Mr. President. Finding global success with undeniable jams Coco Jambo, Up’n Away, I Gave You My Heart, Mr. President will transform the So Pop stage to a non-stop dance-a-thon!

Think it can’t get any better? As if! Hosting the evening In New Zealand, will be the one and only Suzanne Paul! Suzanne has been regular on kiwi television over the past three decades, whether it be advertising Natural Glow, the Suzanne Clip, Massage Pillow, or dancing her way to the top on Dancing With The Stars or even teaching us her very own dance The Blue Monkey! Suzanne is sure to be a highlight in this massive concert line up.

Secure your spot at So Pop this summer! Don’t miss out on an epic night with these ‘90s pop legends - time to get jiggy with it!
