German pop singer Sandra to perform in Hanoi
The Saigon Times Daily
German pop singer Sandra will have a joint concert with Bad Boys Blue band in Hanoi on March 11, reports Vietnamplus.
Sandra, a pop star in the 1980s, will arrive one day earlier to meet Vietnamese fans. Her songs are about the feeling of people in love or the emotions of girls in love. Sandra started her music career when she was 16 with the Arabesque girlband. The band had their great success in Japan’s market where their concerts had lured more than 70,000 spectators.
To Sandra, Asia is such a beautiful and mysterious land. She agreed to perform in Vietnam right after receiving an invitation from local organizers despite the high season of shows in Europe and a long journey to Vietnam.
Currently living in Spain, the artist said in a statement that she is confident to win the hearts of Vietnamese fans as they are special spectators. “I have had many shows in the U.S. and most of my viewers are Vietnamese. They express their love and enthusiasm until the last minutes of the show.
“I have never thought of having a tour in Asia but I will take this chance immediately.”
Sandra, whose real name is Sandra Ann Lauer, was born in Saarbrücken, Germany. Her father was the owner of a wine shop while her mom worked in a shoes shop. She had an older brother who died in 1995.
She exposed her talent for music since she was a kid. Her parents took her to ballet and guitar classes. Sandra met her first husband Michael at a studio in Frankfurt, Germany in the late 1970s when she was a member of the Arabesque.
Bad Boys Blue is a multinational pop group that was formed in Cologne, Germany. The group performed many international hits including You’re a Woman, Pretty Young Girl, I Wanna Hear Your Heartbeat, and Come Back and Stay.
“Bad Boys Blue & Sandra Live In Concert” will take place at 8 p.m. on March 11 at My Dinh National Convention Center in Hanoi. The event is part of the Legend Concert series, including Kenny G Live In Concert in 2015, Boney M & Chris Norman and̀ Modern Talking ft Thomas Anders in 2016.
