The summer of 2005 was a time of electronic dance music, and one unforeseen song took mainstream music by storm: “Everytime We Touch” by Cascada. What if I told you they’d be back in America this year? People, please evacuate the dance floor. Cascada has announced a new tour, including their first US dates in ten years!
“Everytime We Touch” is still getting attention 17 years after it was released, and it is still played in clubs and has found new existence in memes and TikToks. However, when the single first came out, it was unlike anything else on the radio. The Eurodance sound prevalent in the late 1990s and early 2000s wasn’t new to dance music fans but was fresh and infectious to mainstream listeners. Most importantly, it got stuck in people’s heads and inspired them to sing along.
Who are the Cascada?
For those too young to know Cascada, they are the German techno trio helmed by singer Natalie Horler. They released the song “Miracle” with too little fanfare in 2004, but then “Everytime We Touch” was lightning in a bottle. Its popularity in the United States was a huge surprise, given the scarcity of dance music of that caliber on mainstream radio, let alone the charts. Unlike in Europe, techno songs have typically achieved greater underground success in the United States. That is, until the massive resurgence of EDM in the 2010s.
Cascada, the shape-shifting electronic dance music group, is planning a US tour for early 2023. While Cascada has been active in the music industry for nearly two decades, the band has yet to tour the United States in ten years. However, Singer Natalie Horler has revealed a chain of US tour dates in early 2023, sandwiched between performances in Europe and Australia.
The upcoming tour dates were confirmed in a post by Natalie Horler on the group’s Instagram page, where she sparkles in a “USA” sweatshirt and starts the post with, “Who’s ready to come to see us in the States?” While she lists four stops for the group, including San Diego, Chicago, and two in New York, the group’s official website also includes a Houston stop.
Cascada’s long-awaited return to America will be thrilling for fans hoping to see dance music royalty up close and personal. While the constrained dates will not satisfy all fans, it will undoubtedly be a historic occasion for those fortunate enough to attend.
Although the band hasn’t performed in the United States in ten years, they have been active, as they continue to produce music and perform live in Europe and other parts of the world. The Cascada most recently collaborated with Timmy Trumpet and Harris & Ford for the 2021 single “Never Let You Go.” Fans who want to see Natalie Horler belt out new and classic singles can get detailed information and ticket purchases from the official Cascada website.
