Hoping to relive the music of everyone’s favourite decade, 90’s Nostalgia is bringing their Electric Circus edition tour to Canada this June.

From June 16 – 22, 2020 popular 90’s bands AQUA, Vengaboys, Eiffel 65, 2 Unlimited, Haddaway and Jenny from Ace of Base will visit major Canadian cities on this once-in-a-lifetime tour.

“This Nostalgic Tour is allowing Canadians to relive the iconic Electric Circus Dance Party with their favourite dance artists, many of them who have performed live on Electric Circus in the past,” says Davide Venti.
