MarcAlmond Düsseldorf 2022 16 von 16Stahlwerk, Düsseldorf, Germany
14th May 2022
Marc Almond - “Hits & Pieces” 2022

At the beginning of the 80s and synthesizer music, the British duo SOFT CELL formed and had a worldwide success in 1981 with their song ‘Tainted Love’. After splitting up in 1984, both worked on their solo careers. The music of Marc Almond today goes in the direction of chanson and singer / songwriter. But he also likes to cover songs by Jaques Brel or David Bowie. /

Music & Performance
When MARC ALMOND entered the stage of the Düsseldorf Stahlwerk, the audience cheered. MARC ALMOND opened the concert with the songs ‘The Stars We Are’ and ‘Tears Run Rings’. During the concert he told the audience that it had been five years since his last performance [In Germany]. Of course, the newest song ‘Purple Zone’ was not to be missed on this evening. This is another song he recorded with his old friend and colleague Dave Ball and the PET SHOP BOYS. In this Marc performed this dance song in a slow version. After that, the audience got to hear a nice mix of SOFT CELL classics and cover versions. Here, almost everyone sang along with sure lyrics.

Although MARC ALMOND acted rather quietly on stage and mostly gesticulated with his arms, he also danced exuberantly across the stage or leaned towards the audience at the edge of the stage. So, we saw a happy and excellent MARC ALMOND who was visibly moved at the end of the evening.
