The Hooters - Live 2023
When THE HOOTERS first emerged on the Philadelphia music scene in 1980, they were taking over the East Coast at breakneck speed. Their unique mix of Ska, Reggae and Rock n Roll is what makes their fresh and powerful sound so successful. In 1983 they released their first independent album ‘Amore’, which included i.e., one of their biggest hits ‘All You Zombies’. As early as 1986, the band had four hit singles under their belt and toured almost continuously. Little known a year ago, the band now shares the stage with the likes of U2, THE POLICE, BRYAN ADAMS, LOU REED and PETER GABRIEL. In 1987, THE HOOTERS released ‘One Way Home’, which featured the famous hit ‘Johnny B’.
More albums followed, and in 2000 they got the honor of Ricky Martin covering their song ‘Private Emotion’. After numerous tours that they completed over many years, THE HOOTERS decided to take a well-deserved break and concentrated on various solo projects. Rob Hyman and Eric Bazilian lent their talents as both musicians and songwriters to other artists including TAJ MAHAL, MICK JAGGER, WILLIE NELSON, JON BON JOVI, ROBBIE WILLIAMS, CYNDI LAUPER (‘Time After Time’ was nominated for several Grammys) and many more.
From the early 2000s THE HOOTERS continued with great success, especially in Europe, and many tours and releases. In 2020 they celebrated their 40th anniversary, which they wanted to crown with an extensive Germany tour in the summer. But the tour also fell victim to the Corona pandemic, so it was postponed to 2021 and then to 2022. In 2023, THE HOOTERS are now coming to the Parkbühne Leipzig Open-Air 2023 on July 7th, 2023.
