Australia’s favourite Danish party band is back, confirming that they’ll be hitting up stages in each of the five main capital cities from later this month.
Aqua really hit the big time back in 1997 when their novelty smash ‘Barbie Girl’ conquered charts across the planet, staying at No.1 here in Australia for three weeks straight and maintaining its top ten heading for a further eight.
Though many were quick to write them off as a one hit wonder, they came back just as strong with ‘Doctor Jones’, which stayed at No.1 for seven weeks and in the top ten for a further six.
‘Lollipop (Candyman)’ also hit the top ten, as did the more mature ‘Turn Back Time’ and they were back in the top 20 again with ‘Cartoon Heroes’ in 2000.
The band will roll out the hits during their Australian tour, which kicks off in Brisbane on October 31.
To celebrate their impending arrival, the amazing event publicists have given us four double passes to give away… one double pass for each of the shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Fremantle. And you have the chance to win!
October 31 : Brisbane (Eatons Hill Hotel)
November 01 : Sydney (Enmore Theatre)
November 02 : Adelaide (HQ)
November 03 : Melbourne (Palais Theatre)
November 05 : Fremantle (Metropolis)
Email us. At the address up top in the sidebar. We’ll be needing your name, your address and your contact phone number (preferably mobile) so we can get in contact with you to let you know if you’ve won. Your details will not be used for any other purpose other than the delivery of the prizes and that’s a promise. In the subject line of the email, pop the word ‘AQUA’, then the city to which you’d like to enter the draw. For example, if the Melbourne tix are for you, the subject line should read ‘AQUA : Melbourne’, for Brisbane it’s ‘AQUA : Brisbane’. Et cetera. But you’ve only got a limited amount of time in which to do so! Sounds simple enough…
Competition closes at 5pm AEDT on Wednesday October 29, 2014. Strictly one entry per person/address. Winners drawn entirely at random. Over 18s only. The competition is open to Australian residents only. Winners first names, suburbs and states will be published on the site on Wednesday October 29, 2014. We’ll also email and/or call the winners to advise them of their win. One lucky winner will receive a double pass to Aqua’s Brisbane show on Friday October 31, 2014, while one other lucky person gets a double pass to Aqua’s Sydney show on Saturday November 01. One lucky person will pick up a double pass to the band’s Melbourne show on Monday November 03 and another will pick up a double pass to the Fremantle show on Wednesday November 05. Travel to/from the event and any other associated costs (including your favourite tipple) are the sole responsibility of the winners. This prize is for the tickets only. Remember, we’re fussy when it comes to keeping your details private, so they’re never passed on to any third party unless previously advised. In this case, phone numbers, email and postal addresses will be passed onto the publicist solely for the distribution of prizes.
THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED.
