90s stars Vengaboys rose to fame over 20 years ago – but in a new photo they look like they’ve barely aged.

The band have sold over 25 million albums worldwide and topped the UK charts with their songs Boom Boom Boom Boom and We’re Going to Ibiza.

Hailing from Rotterdam in the Netherlands, the popular dance group consists of members, Kim Sasabone, Denise Post-Van Rijswijk, Robin Pors and Donny Latupeirissa – who replaced original member Roy den Burger in 2007.

The group was formed by DJs Danski and Delmundo who, in the early 1990s, were hosting illegal beach parties from their worn-out school bus.

During their tour in Ibiza between 1992 and 1997, they added the dancers who would later lead the group on their worldwide success.

Roy, Denise, Kim and Robin ‘spiced up’ DJ sets so much and became so popular that they started a record label and produced their own music.

The band’s debut album, The Party Album!, charted at number one in 20 countries around the world and spent 30 consecutive weeks on the US Billboard charts.

After rising to fame in 1998, the band went on hiatus eight years later, but quickly returned to the stage in 2007.

Since then, the award-winning band have continued to release music and tour the world on what they dubbed the “Non-Stop World Tour”.

They returned to the stage after the Covid lockdown in 2021 as part of 90s Nostalgia: Electric Circus in Canada and often appear on 90s throwback festival lineups.

They joined UK stars Peter Andre, Atomic Kitten and 5ive at the Baby Pop 90s festival last October.

The power band shows no signs of slowing down and has been performing non-stop across the UK and Europe this year.

Last year, the most successful band in Dutch history released a cover of the 1999 track (I Wanna Go Back) by Charli XCX and Troye Sivan to help transport people back to the 90s.

“For us, the 90s never ended anyway. But we notice that a lot of people are weighed down by a heavy mood, and it’s pretty striking that this has been the case since the new millennium. I’m just saying, ” Donny said last year.

Kim added: “We have been on a non-stop world tour since 1999. Covid has brought that to a screeching halt. After more than a year of absence, we are dying to find our friends and our fans.
