Whenever I used to see adverts on TV for 80’s artists that were doing a comeback tour I’d think “oh man, the oldies are going to love this”, but now I’ve noticed that all the bands that are coming back are ones that used to frequent the charts when I was in school. I am now one of those oldies. The Vengaboys have new tunes are are going to visit Australia early next year and Donny filled out our Q&A form (with a few extra questions). I should have asked why they’ve never been on Eurovision, they’re the epitome of cheesy Europop!
