Modern Talking half Thomas Anders in Bucharest this winter

Thomas Anders, former member of Modern Talking, will perform at Bucharest’s Palace Hall on December 10, according to a press release quoted by Mediafax news agency.


Anders will bring to Bucharest famous 1980s hits of Modern Talking, such as “Brother Louie,” “Cheri, Cheri Lady,” “You’re My Heart, You’re My Soul,” “Sexy Sexy Lover,” “You Can Win What You Want” and “You Are Not Alone.”


Tickets for the concert have been released and can be purchased in the Vreau Bilet network, on the second floor of Unirea Shopping Center and Carrefour Feeria – Baneasa Shopping City, at the Palace Hall and online, on www.vreaubilet.ro.


Modern Talking, referred to as one of the most successful German pop duos, was set up in 1984 by Anders and Dieter Bohlen. The two split up in 1987 but got back together again in 1998 and continued working as a duo for five more years. They unexpectedly became immensely popular with their eurodisco hit single “You’re My Heart, You’re My Soul” with which they occupied the number one position in 35 countries including their homeland where the single perched at the top for six consecutive weeks, the single eventually went on to sell eight million copies world-wide. The track was then followed by another number one hit “You Can Win If You Want” which was released in the middle of 1985 from the debut album The First Album. The album went on being certified platinum in Germany for selling over 500,000 units.


During this era Modern Talking were successful in Europe, Asia, South America, Middle East, particularly in Iran. In the United Kingdom they entered the top-5 only once with the song “Brother Louie.” Like most European pop acts, they were almost unknown in North America, never appearing in the US charts, although they did become one hit wonders in Canada when “Brother Louie” peaked at number 34 in 1987. They released two albums a year between 1985 and 1987 while also promoting their singles on television all over Europe eventually selling 65 million records within three years.
