2009 the incredible success story of the inventor and at the same time King of the pop hit again to chew through the new DVD – respect – live in Oberhausen Michael Wendler is probably futile, because long ago Michael Wendler is a term not only fans and industry insiders. Songs such as “She loves the DJ”, “Sounder” or of course “Nina”, recently in brand new clothes, “Reloaded Version” was released again (with Mr. James, whose sensational rap layer), as party classic and at the same time, witness of a unique career are saying. in 2005 he played a concert at the KoPi arena in Oberhausen, for the first time before “only” 6,000 fans, a year later there were 10,000 and 2007 the Wendler had succeeded then: almost 13,000 fans – sold out! This, by the image as “Wallace madness” spectacle titled, was released in November of the same year on DVD (“best of – live in Oberhausen 2007”). And the Oberhausen concert in the following year was completely sold out, a phenomenal success and on the DVD “Undefeated” for posterity. At least at this time, no doubt was that ‘Michael Wendler, live in Oberhausen’ is an institution. And so it is no surprise, then, that the Wendler 2009 continued this tradition: on September 26, he returned to the KoPi arena; in the baggage not only its greatest hits, but also songs from the current album “Respect”, which was released in April this year. “” I Don “t know”, “you and I” and also the title track of “Respect” were perfectly in the long series of hits of Wallace and provided again for a concert experience of a special kind.
Almost 13,000 concert-goers were inspired live away, for the rest of the DVD “Respect – live in Oberhausen 2009” appears on November 13, 2009. And that a lot is available: in addition to the usual dazzling show of Dinslakeners, there was still an unexpected highlight for the audience. When the mega-hit “She loves the DJ” Michael Wendler was surprisingly prominent support: none other than Nino De Angelo came to a Duet on the stage! And: with “Summer rain” is also a brand new track in the live programme. At the end of the concert, there was then a very special surprise for the star of the evening: Michael Brill, Managing Director of KoPi arena, drew Michael Wendler the ARENA “walk of Fame” – award from. Prerequisite for inclusion in the “walk of Fame” is that the artists have celebrated outstanding achievements at the KoPi arena. The areas of pop, rock, folk and pop stars are immortalized with an engraved star granite on the arena Plaza.
The ARENA “Walk of Fame” runs directly from the ticket offices of the arena Plaza to the main entrance of KoPi arena. Many artists such as Paul McCartney, David Copperfield, Santana, Kylie Minogue, KISS, Joe Cocker and Mario Barth have perpetuated there already. At the conclusion of the successful evening, there was still the grand finale with all participants. Anyway, the Wendler has surpassed the high expectations of the live audience with ease – and also the DVD will disappoint anyone. Is the next great Wallace party already in the planning! On March 20, it says: Wallace & friends in the Schalke arena! -Tickets are available in advance.
