Vi Elsker 90’erne reveals: Legendary boyband is coming to Aalborg

by Nathalia Hentze Nielsen

MyAalborg is media partner with Vi Elsker 90’erne – June 4, 2022. Vi Elsker 90’erne is a one-day music festival that features some of the best artists from the 90s.

If you’re were riding the boyband wave in the 90s and start 00s then you’ll definitely be pleased by this piece of news.

The popular English boyband Blue is making a comeback with all their greatest hits on the Vi Elsker 90’erne tour.

That means that they’re performing on Dyrskuepladsen in Skalborg on June 4, 2022.

Blue hasn’t performed in Denmark since the beginning of the 00s so it’s going to be a happy, festive, and heart warming reunion with the audience.

“They said we never got our youth back. But they were wrong!! – This is the slogan of the year and Vi Elsker 90’erne owns every word.”

This was announced in a recent press release.

“We are back after some difficult years and relying on 2022 being a year where we can reunite during a magical summer with room to let memories run wild.

Not only can we party like usual but we’re also bringing together memories from the 90s with more recent names in our traditional shows,” Riffi Haddaoui, partner at Vi Elsker 90’erne, says.

Have had 11 Top 10 hits in the world

One of these new names is the English band Blue. With 13 million sold albums worldwide, 11 top 10 hits, and three albums which topped the charts in their home country in the beginning of the 2000s, they can truly be labeled as a pop heavyweight.

Blue is everything you love about boybands – smooth pop tunes and gorgeous men.

You’re probably already familiar with their greatest hits “All Rise”, “Too Close”, and “Guilty”, which all topped the charts as number one in Great Britain. The talented boyband released 16 singles over a four-year-period.

Blue consists of Simon Webbe, Lee Ryan, Duncan James, and Antony Costa and have aside from their own music also worked together with some of the absolute biggest artists in the industry – for example Stevie Wonder, Lil’ Kim, and last but not least Sir Elton John who they joined for the mega hit “Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word”.

Regardless if you were six, sixteen or twenty six: If the 90s boybands tugged at your heartstrings then you can’t miss this year’s festival with Blue as one of the headliners.

Reunited Blue is selling out shows

“It’s a musical and stylistic scoop that Blue has become part of our festival family, and the booking reflects that we’re including the 00s even more in our festival.

It’s required a lot of work to include them in our entire tour because they’re currently selling out their own solo shows in England and Australia but now it’s succeeded, and I look forward to finally experience them in Denmark,” Riffi Haddaoui explains.

This year, Vi Elsker is presenting a line-up that is crazier than ever and even more artists will be announced shortly.

Once all the names have been announced there’ll be a total of 25 artists that used to thrill young people from stages and dance floors in the 90s and 00s.

The ticket sale for all seven shows has started and can be found on Ticketmaster.
