IO, Semarang – Danish Pop Rock band Michael Learns to Rock (MLTR), which has Jascha Richter (vocal/keyboard), Mikkel Lentz (guitar) and Kare Wanscher (drums) as its members, is scheduled to hold a solo concert in Semarang, Central Java, on November 22, 2019 at the Marina Convention Center (MCC) Semarang, Central Java, promoted by Nada Live and supported by Maxima Production.
MLTR was founded in 1988 and has sold more than 11 million albums in their long and illustrious career in the music world. In fact, this band was also known in Europe because many of its albums received gold and platinum awards due to the high sales of their albums. MLTR has also won a Gold Preis Award from RSH, Germany and “The Best Performing Act of the Year” at the South East Asia Grammy Awards in Singapore. Their song titled “Take Me To Your Heart” was awarded the ‘most downloaded song in 2006’ because it registered more than 6 million paid downloads.
Well, the concert which is included in the series of ‘STILL ASIAN TOUR 2019’ is a concert in the context of the latest MLTR promo album titled ‘STILL’. Finally, when holding a concert in Jakarta, Jascha Ritcher, the vocalist, had revealed that Indonesia has a special place in the hearts of MLTR. So, don’t be surprised if MLTR had often come back and forth to Indonesia to hold concerts. “We are always proud to come to Indonesia, because Indonesia has been very influential in our career,” he said.
Gandi Ben, CEO of Nada Live, as the promoter of the 2019 MLTR Live in Semarang concert, admitted to being proud and enthusiastic to be a part of history, because according to him, MLTR is a band that is already familiar to the people of Semarang, Central Java. “As a legendary band that is well known by the people of Semarang in particular and the people of Indonesia in general, the presence of MLTR in Semarang will later be history of the development of the world of performance art in Semarang. Next month’s MLTR concert will be an ‘exciting’ phenomenon that is ready to stir Semarang city,” said Gandi Ben.
Gandi Ben added that this was a challenge for Nada Live, who had the opportunity to collaborate with Maxima Production in presenting a historic concert that Semarang had been awaiting for a long time. “We ask for the support of all citizens of Semarang, Central Java, and surrounding areas. If the concert is successful, Semarang will be ‘flooded’ by other foreign artists wanting to hold concerts,” added Gandi.
The same thing was also stated by Marsheilla Setiabudhi, acting CEO of Maxima Production. She also felt very enthusiastic to take part in this event. “The presence of MLTR in Semarang will certainly be able to please MLTR fans and international music lovers,” she concluded.
