Udo Lindenberg Tickets
The fascinating musical universe of Udo Lindenberg
Udo Lindenberg is a strange creature, and we mean that in the best possible way. You can never be sure if he's going to present you with jazz-rock flavoured Krautrock, German cover versions of classic rock songs with a comedic undertone, or the sentimental German mainstream pop known as "Schlager". He's a musical chameleon, whom you can discover in all his many colours when you buy or sell Udo Lindenberg tickets on StubHub.
A man of many musical stripes
Udo Lindenberg began with the well-known '70s jazz fusion band Passport, which plied similar musical channels as other popular bands in the genre at the time like Weather Report. For a while, the relative freedom of jazz gave Udo Lindenberg the space to inject his own impish brand of humour, but it wasn't long before he felt the need to extend himself beyond these confines. And extend he did! His first few albums of what could then be described as German language light pop-rock built him a steady if slow audience, particularly in the northern parts of the country. He then landed what was at the time the largest recording deal ever offered to a German singer, which gave him the platform from which to establish himself as the pioneer of a curious blend of Krautrock and the catchy, almost "oompah-like" German Schlager pop. This broke him into the pop mainstream, where previously German-language singers had only ever achieved regional success in their specific niche. But this was only a taste of what was to come, as you'll discover when you get Udo Lindenberg tickets – you might find yourself listening to Rolling Stones songs that you can't understand!
A huge career of wacky German cover versions
Udo Lindenberg's next move was brash, even by his standards. He entered the recording studio and emerged with an album of "Germanised" versions of some of the biggest rock hits of all time, including songs by The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and Little Richard. That takes some nerve in a country that worships these bands and that entire era of music in general. Even more cheekily, his German cover version of "We Gotta Get Out of This Place", the legendary rock anthem from Eric Burdon and The Animals went right to the top of the German pop charts. He's since gone on to collaborate with Burdon himself, showing that it was all taken in good humour on both sides – and why not? He's also recorded and played with many other bands to whom he's paid tribute, as well as cult heroes of his own, like the Tom Robinson Band. German and other European artists have been frequent collaborators as well, such as Nena and Italy's '80s pop sensation, Gianna Nannini. You'll certainly be in more than capable musical hands with Udo Lindenberg tickets – no matter what music you get, it's always masterfully performed and excellent entertainment.
