The city of Burbank played host to an 80s pop music icon, and an internationally loved entertainer, during his visit to Los Angeles, for two nights of sold out performances.
On Saturday August 15, and Sunday August 16th Thomas Anders took the stage at the Starlight Bowl to sing a list of his classic pop songs while performing newer tunes from his solo career now spanning over 3 decades, keeping him touring and recording most of the time.
Here at Ian Media, we were thrilled to play a role in launching the TV advertising leg of the concert campaign, in Los Angeles, and to contribute to this very special concert. Viewers reacted enthusiastically after seeing the 30-second TV commercials featuring the iconic Anders and the news of him performing in their city.
Known as The Gentleman of Music, Anders is the original voice of the 80s super-duo Modern Talking originating from Germany. The group rose to international stardom with songs: “You’re My heart, You’re My Soul,” “Cheri, Cheri Lady,” and “Brother Louie” to name a few, all recorded in English.
The event was presented by LA Concert Group in collaboration with Starlight Bowl Summer Concert Series. Along with supporters and sponsors such as: City of Burbank Park & Recreation Department, Pacific BMW, Downtown-Burbank, Visit Burbank, Burbank Recycle Center, Los Angeles-Berlin Sister City Association, Noor Banquet Hall.
The show was a rare treat for the fans on the west coast bringing 10,000 of them to see and hear the man and the music they admired for years.
Opening the show were 80s tribute band PopGun Rerun followed by the main event, featuring Anders backed by Modern Talking Band and special guest Jörn-Uwe Fahrenkrog-Petersen, a keyboard player, producer and composer who has collaborated with the singer since 2011.
Starlight Bowl is an outdoor amphitheater where guests can bring their own wine, beer and picnic baskets. Blankets or lawn chairs can be used for grass area. The bench seats are all assigned seating.
Trivia: Thomas Anders is the only international star to have performed a record of 11 times at the Kremlin in Moscow, the equivalent of Royal Albert Hall, in London.
