Despite the hits they had belted out in the early nineties and the 10 million copies they’ve sold so far, Michael Learns to Rock (MLTR) could never really charm Europe or the US. But have been very popular in India. So the Danish pop-rock band will be back for their third Indian concert on Thursday, June 17.
They had performed their first concert in 1995 and the second in 2005. Unlike their previous shows, this gig will be of a shorter duration and wouldn’t focus on their hey-day hits.
The band that’s reportedly named after the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, is responsible for 90s hits such as Sleeping Child, Twenty Five Minutes, The Actor, Someday and Paint My Love. They’ve met with great success in Asia ever since they had started and India has always been a special place for the band. Since MLTR has never found steady ground in the European and US markets, they’ve made the best of what they’ve got. This time around MLTR is on a promotional tour in India for their ‘latest’ album Eternity that was released in October 2008. However it reached India in 2009.
They are likely to play an hour-long set with songs mostly from their ‘new’ album. So you will get to sample more of their unapologetic ‘easy listening’ fare that came from the band’s interpretation of MJ going the rock way.
