The Legend Continues as The Angel On My Shoulder Tour comes to Philippines. Manila fans
will be excited for the return of ENGELBERT HUMPERDINCK , Tuesday 12 November 2019,
8:00pm, New Frontier Theater. One Golden Voice, live in concert, performing all his timeless
Engelbert Humperdinck never wanted to be a singer. A career in music, yes, but he was
extraordinarily shy. He knew he could sing harmonies, but the power of his own voice came as
a surprise to him and other people. “It’s just so loud, but I discovered I can be tender with it at
the same time.” Like all great icons, he is a man of great depth -- masculine and loving, shy
inside and uninhibited onstage, prepared to play the sex god to the hilt and still, at this stage of
his career, managing to get away with it.
In a career spanning more than 50 years, Engelbert has generated sales in excess of 140
million records, including 64 gold albums and 23 platinum, four Grammy nominations, a Golden
Globe, and stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Las Vegas Walk of Fame. He has
performed for the Queen four times and many heads of state. He has recorded everything from
the most romantic ballads to movie theme songs, disco, rock, and even gospel. His unique
voice has charmed millions of fans around the globe. However, it’s not just the voice, but the
man himself, with his endearing sense of humor and self-deprecating jokes. Engelbert has
managed to strike a new chord with a younger generation after appearing on MTV several
Engelbert exploded onto the music scene in the sixties with The Beatles and The Rolling
Stones. The shy handsome boy catapulted almost instantly to world icon. He became great
friends with Elvis Presley, and the two legends often performed each other’s songs. His first
single on the charts was “Release Me,” which went into the Guinness Book of World Records
for achieving 56 consecutive weeks on the charts. It was No.1 in 11 countries. The song was
re-released after being used for a UK national television commercial for John Smith’s beer.
The following decades saw Engelbert touring the world to sell-out crowds. Engelbert seems to
take great pleasure in every moment on stage, a place where he can lose his inhibitions and no
longer be the child who was once shy. Engelbert’s music has transcended time and his voice
still continues to reach out to people now -- serving to transport and inspire, to embrace and to
provoke feelings and emotions… ingredients that are no doubt the essence of his long-lasting success.
