During the show “Modern Talking ft Thomas Anders & Band 2018”, the German singer-composer-producer will bring to the stage the band’s hits during the 1980s and 1990s, which made the band famous during those times.

The show is held following the success of his debut show in Hanoi in 2016, which attracted around 4,000 audience members.

He performed the band’s famous You’re My Heart, You’re My Soul, and made up new lyrics at the end of the song: “You’re my heart, you’re my soul/ That’s only thing I really know/ All over the world, and in Viet Nam/ And especially in Ha Noi/ You, all the people here/ Stay in my heart.”

Anders explained that audiences everywhere always want him to sing You’re My Heart, You’re My Soul, and he had sung that song for 32 years. “I try to make it fresher by refreshing my style or with modern mixing,” he told Viet Nam News at a press conference before the 2016 show. 

Anders also performed the band’s other hits, including You Can Win If You Want, Cheri, Cheri Lady, Brother Louie, Geronimo’s Cadillac, and Atlantis Is Calling.

Modern Talking was formed in 1984 and has won fame with many songs reaching the top five in other countries. Among the biggest hits are “You Can Win If You Want,” “Cheri, Cheri Lady” and “Atlantis is calling,” songs popular in Vietnam several decades ago.

The duo has sold more than 130 million records in their career, including eight million copies for their single debut “You’re My Heart, You’re My Soul” (1985).

The duo split up a few years later, in 1987, and reunited in 1998 with their comeback album Back for Good, which stayed at the No.1 spot in Germany for five consecutive weeks and topped the charts in 15 countries./.
