#SPOTTED: S CLUB + AQUA IN TORONTO FOR 90’S NOSTALGIA TOUR
The 90’s Nostalgia Tour took over Vaughan this weekend, just north of the City. The Festival at Interchange Park, brought out fan favourites Right Said Fred, Vengaboys, Prozzak, Aqua and S Club for a one night only dance affair.
Simon Fuller, the same man behind American Idol and Spice Girls, formed S Club 7 back in the late ’90s and they became a household name with hit Television Shows Miami 7 and L.A. 7. They also saw international success with 10 million albums sold, a U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Top Ten hit, four UK number one hits and a number one album in the UK as well, plus winning two prestigious BRIT Awards. Two in a Million, S Club Party and Never Had a Dream Come True garnered them chart success internationally. Although some of the members have moved on, members Tina Barrett, Bradley McIntosh and Jo O’Meara still are keeping the legacy alive touring as a Trio and fans at the ‘90s Nostalgia Tour were lucky enough to catch them in a rare appearance in these parts!
We were lucky enough to meet S Club and there were amazingly-nice, offering handshakes and hugs despite being on a bit of a time crunch having just done an appearance last night in the UK and operating on a few hours of sleep.

Aqua was given the headlining spot, capping off the night of nostalgia best-selling Danish Pop Band of all time with 33 million albums sold, now is a Trio consisting of René Dif, Søren Rasted and lead Vocalist, Lene Nystrøm. Around the World, Doctor Jones and of course Barbie Girl were impossible to avoid in the late ’90s and we’ve missed them! Travelling as a sizable entourage, Nystrøm tells us she was a bit down about some obstacles with her performance which saw her donning a green wig. She says, “Some are good and some are bad” and she was happy as long as the fans enjoyed it. Completely gracious and lovely.
