Aqua and Prozzak are coming to Toronto… together

Seeing the cartoon CanRock band Prozzak in these late twenty-teens is already enough to spin you back to the days.


Seeing the cartoon CanRock band Prozzak in these late twenty-teens is already enough to spin you back to the days of Napster and ICQ, but teaming with fellow late-90s cheese-pop group Aqua might just be a nostalgia overload.

The pair of throwbacks are also joined by Whigfield whose hit Saturday Night came a few years earlier, but fits the sugary Eurodance vibe for the cross-Canada The Rewind Tour, which kicks off with a Toronto date on September 8 that might just turn Echo Beach into an episode of Electric Circus. Oh wait, the show also includes Much Video Dance party.

It’s not explicitly branded as a costume party, but how will this not be a concert full of Simons, Milos, Barbies, Dr. Jones and, um, characters from Sliding Doors? If it feels a bit like Pride, that’s appropriate: the show is presented by Pride Toronto and a portion of the concert’s proceeds is going to the organization.
