Engelbert Humperdinck in concert at the Mount Dora Community Building Theater

MUMBAI: His name comes from the 19th-century Austrian composer who wrote 'Hansel & Gretel'. His voice comes from heaven, and he has been a legend in the international music industry for the last forty plus years, with over 150 million records sold.

Some of the evergreen hits that belong to Engelbert include; "Please Release Me', 'After The Lovin', Spanish Eyes', 'The Last Waltz', 'Am I That Easy To Forget' , 'There Goes My Everything', 'Les Bicyclettes de Belsize', 'Winter World Of Love', 'This Moment In Time', 'Can't Take My Eyes Off You' and the unforgettable Quando, Quando, Quando.

Few people realize that several of the major forces in the world of rock n' roll, including Jimi Hendrix and The Carpenters, started out as opening acts for Humperdinck in the late 60's, 70's and 80's. Let's not forget Humperdinck taking #1 away from the Beatles, as well.

With four Grammy nominations, a Golden Globe for "Entertainer of the Year" in 1988, 63 gold and 24 platinum records and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Humperdinck might rest easy on his laurels. Hardly. In the past few years, he has joined in elite group of musical artists, such as Tony Bennett and Burt Bacharach, who have crossed over successfully to strike a new chord with a younger generation, in addition to their core audiences.

The event will be brought by 'Get Off the Bus Concerts'. Ticket prices range from $95 to $300 including a meet and greet with Engelbert Humperdinck before the show. Tickets are available on their official site.
