Excited for their upcoming and eagerly awaited World Tour, AQUA, the Danish dance-pop powerhouse, has released their new video “Barbie Girl (Summer Tour 2023).” Featuring footage from various live shows this past Summer including their sold-out headline shows at NYC’s Irving Plaza and Los Angeles’ The Belasco, the video is a celebration of the band’s enduring popularity and legacy in the world of pop. As previously announced, the trio is poised to embark on an eagerly awaited nationwide tour, recapturing the hearts of fans across the country.
“We’ve been working for this for 27 years! Performing two sold out shows in NYC and LA this summer was a dream come true, and to be able to come back soon for a nation-wide tour is absolutely insane. We cannot wait to meet everyone for the first time, face to face.” – AQUA
