1. New band confirmation L’AME IMMORTELLE

Anything but nameless, the second last addition to the Amphi line-up is presented. As Austria’s most successful export of the scene, Sonja Kraushofer and Thomas Rainer aka L’AME IMMORTELLE can meanwhile look back on 11 moving years, in which the Viennese always followed their own path and came up with many surprises.

Matured from an Electro act to a rock band with classical elements, L’AME IMMORTELLE re-invented themselves with every album and left distinct footprints from small clubs to the highest region of the music charts. While timeless classics like “Bitterkeit” and “Life will never be the same again” already belong to the general knowledge of the scene, the Austrian’s proved their great sense for irresistible melodies and musical variability with their current album “Namenlos” packed in an harmonious concept about the stories and destiny’s of the Viennese cemetery of the nameless.

Inflamed by the just finished 7 days tour with L’AME IMMORTELLE in top form, the fans are begging for more to experience the feeling of these seven magical evenings anew. Because of this, it was a necessity to the Amphi Festival to shorten the waiting time for all fans of the likeable Austrians and to get L’AME IMMORTELLE for their sole open air performance in 2008 at the Tanzbrunnen in Cologne.

You can expect another spectacular highlight in the program, when the powerful voiced Sonja Kraushofer as ire red angel and whirlwind Thomas Rainer will rock the IV. Amphi Festival
