There is a lot of excitement this morning about the announcement of an Australian leg of Harry Styles’ Love On Tour. It’s definitely something to cheer about, but hear me out, I have something that’s potentially bigger: Rebecca Black and Nikki Webster are touring together.
Listen the GOAT team break it all down on It’s Been A Big Day For…below:
The Bingo Loco Tour XXL Tour is hitting Sydney, Melbourne, Fremantle, and Brisbane in May. It won’t just be wall to wall throwback bangers though, the website promises “rave rounds, lip-sync battles, dance-offs, comedian MCs, confetti showers, mammoth production and epic secret prizes,” so it really is just an all round good time.
Come for the Strawberry Kisses, stay for the lip-sync battles.
Look. We’ve all belted out both Friday and Strawberry Kisses at some time in our lives, whether that time was as a kid or six drinks deep at a party. Probably both. Point it, it’s happened and there’s no point pretending that you’re not as excited about this tour as I am.
I’m also surprisingly emotional about seeing the two of them together on tour, because both Rebecca Black and Nikki Webster had pretty parallel stories. A big hit when they were kids, before disappearing from the spotlight for a while only to come back bigger and better than ever.
Rebecca Black in particular has only recently spoken out about what the reaction to Friday did to her, and the thought that she could have a friend in Nikki Webster who has done it all before makes me indescribably happy.
If I hadn’t convinced you that this is what you need to be heading to in May, all the proceeds of the Bingo Loco XXL Tour are going to Make-A-Wish Australia to help make the lives of sick kids a bit brighter.
Get around it. Harry Styles can wait.
