Last night I photographed the first show of Aqua’s 2012 Australian tour. A show I merely requested out of curiosity, I was a bit perplexed to see tickets for this show were a whopping $55! $70 on the door! Really? Are people that curious enough to pay $55 to see them? Name more then two songs that you can remember? They aren’t really kitch enough to attract a HiFi full of ironic hipsters really? And I was a bit confused as to who else might want to pay to see them (at this stage I had forgotten all about their other target audiences, straight girls that are now of legal age but who were the prime age of 7 when Barbie Girl. And then the gay boys. The audience who are probably most used to hearing these tracks spin on any given weekend at the Beat.) Needless to say there were a LOT of people willing to pay the cover charge. Enough to fill not one but two nights in Brisbane.
That leads me to my last question, how many more tours before this 90′s Europop revival will burst?
Anyway I am not a writer but a mere photographer so just check out the photos.Tags: 2012, aqua, australian tour, barbie girl, brisbane, first show, lene, mr jones, the hi fi
