Martika Makes First Ever Australian Visit

Those '90s nostalgia acts just keep on coming...

This is starting to get ridiculous.

It was just last night that we were ruminating on the nostalgia acts that have been announced as touring Australia in the past few months and wondering where it would end. So imagine our surprise to wake up this morning to news that Martika is going to be in Australia for the very first time in 2012.

While Martika was probably more of an '80s star, she retained the limelight in the early '90s as well. She had plenty of hits while she was in her heyday; you'll know Love… Thy Will Be Done, I Feel the Earth Move and Toy Soldiers and she has plenty more hits of equal brilliance which have kept her relevant even through a period of relative inactivity.
