The 90s Is Back: When Will It Stop?

30 May 2012 | 7:45 pm | Dan Condon

With so many artists from our youth rearing their heads for tours in 2012, we have a think about who hasn't toured yet and really should.

The proliferation of tours being conducted by bands and artists who faded from the spotlight after their initial blast of epic success is starting to get out of control. Don't get us wrong, we love nothing more than belting out Joshua Kadison's Jesse at 3.15am after one too many Lemon Ruskis, but does that mean we'd be willing to fork out the dollars to go and see The Kad perform it live? Partciualry when we need to save our pennies for the upcoming Hanson and East 17 dates?

As with all of these things, there is a bubble, and that bubble has to burst at some stage. We just hate to think that Londonbeat would become disheartened about their Australian fanbase after appearing to a smattering of people on their triumphant comeback tour because we're all broke and our legs are tired - we are, after all, not as young as we used to be.

But while the going is good, we should enjoy this lengthy nostalgia trip. This voyage down memory lane than calls to mind cans of Impulse, Smash Hits magazines and discovering hair in all sorts of bizarre places on your (still somewhat taut) body. So here's a playlist of acts we ought to see before the '90s goes back to where it came from and a list of those who have already made the commitment to treat us to their previously so hotly demanded talents.

Here's who we'd like to see here ASAP:
