With WDR4 into the 80s! - OMD, Midge Ure, xPropaganda, Real Life, Sandra
Dortmund will enjoy the time travel to the most exciting decade of the last century in September 2021: The 80s! Super stars of the 80s will form the lineup of the evening.Along for the ride will be OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark), who were number 1 in the German single charts for 4 weeks at the end of 1981 with the song "Maid of Orleans". The British pop band is one of the most important representatives of synth pop as well as new wave.
Also in Dortmund will be the great Midge Ure. With hits like "Dancing With Tears In My Eyes" and "Vienna", singer Midge Ure became a megastar with the British band Ultravoxin the 1980s.
After leaving Ultravox in 1985, Midge Ure made a name for himself as a solo artist in the same year, especially with the song "If I Was", proving once again his lyrical and musical talent. Other hits like "Breathe" or the internationally known classic "Do They Know It's Christmas" were also written by him. So it's no wonder that he is still considered one of the best songwriters ever.We are also looking forward to the performance of xPropaganda, Claudia Brücken and Susanne Freytag, who will perform the music of Propaganda.
As former band members, they interpret the 80s hits of Propaganda with their unique voices and invite you to a musical journey through time, close to the audience, danceable, audible and enjoyable.THE Australian pop band of the 80s Real Life will inspire the audience with the outstanding hits "Send Me an Angel", "Catch Me I'm Falling", "Always", and "Face To Face" and promise 80s feeling, where everyone is guaranteed to be carried away.Last but not least, SANDRA will also perform on the evening. In 1985 she brought out her mega hit "Maria Magdalena". She is a German-French pop singer and with over 30 million, especially between 1985 and 1992, sold records, she is one of the most successful artists in Germany.
The evening will be hosted by WDR4 presenter Martina Emmerich and THE 80's presenter Peter Illmann (Formula 1, Peter's Popshow).OMD, Midge Ure, xPropaganda, Real Life, Sandra and the presenters Martina Emmerich and Peter Illmann promise an unforgettable evening.Be there when it's called: With WDR4 into the 80s!
