Michael rocks Macao
Danish soft rock band Michael Learns To Rock (MLTR) serenaded audiences at The Venetian Macao’s Cotai Arena on Saturday, August 17. One of Denmark’s most prominent musical exports, the multi-platinum band comprising Jascha Richter, Kåre Wanscher, and Mikkel Lentz performed an amazing set to an experienced audience who swayed and sang along to the band’s nostalgic sets.
Since their self-titled debut album in 1991, MLTR has enjoyed global record sales of more than 11 million physical albums, scoring multiple hit singles including Paint My Love, 25 Minutes, That’s Why (You Go Away) and Someday, among others. While making themselves a phenomenal hit internationally, MLTR has found particular success in Asia where they have focused much of their career. Their romantically themed music has been used in film and other media in the region, especially in mainland China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines and Taiwan. In a rare move for a foreign band, MLTR created a version of Jacky Cheung’s 1993 hit Goodbye Kiss, which they recorded as Take Me to Your Heart, which topped charts across Asia.
