The global pop music icon with over 30 million sold albums Marc Almond is back in Croatia after five years! Lifted by the positive reviews of the recently released album Chaos and a Dancing Star, Marc Almond will be performing an exclusive concert on August 8th, in the unique atmosphere of St. Michael’s Fortress, giving us his greatest musical hits from a forty-year long career.
The list of international and national performers from the world of music of the seventh season at St. Michael’s Fortress begins with the great Marc Almond, who returns to Croatia after a spectacular concert in 2015 in Zagreb's Lauba. This time he will perform for just over a thousand fans on one of the most prestigious stages on the Adriatic, which will be his only concert in this part of Europe.
Marc Almond is best known for his creative period with David Ball in the electro-pop sensation Soft Cell, earning global fame with the classic Tainted Love. Thanks to these exciting beginnings, diverse and innovative genre-wise, Marc Almond continued to pursue his musical career as a solo artist. Contemporary hits and collaborations like the one with Gene Pitney on Something's Gotten Hold of My Heart, or with Bronski Beat on I Feel Love earned him the status of a pop icon he continued to explore with theatre performances, prose and poetry, as well as interpretations of Russian romances and experimental rock operas. His 24 solo albums are pervaded by a variety of genres - from electronic music, post-punk, rock to big ballads and Russian folk. For many years, fans have been enjoying the classics Tears Run Rings, The Idol, Jacky and What Makes a Man a Man, just as his more recent hits like Child Star, Scar and A Kind of Love.
Proud, bold and eternally unique, Almond released the album Chaos And A Dancing Star at the end of January this year, continuing to work with the renowned producer and author Chris Braide and winning music critics and fans. By first listening to the album, it's clear that this artist, after four decades of intense creation, still implements extremely imaginative concepts and collaborations - such as this new one, with the Jethro Tull legend - Ian Anderson, who joins him for the new single Lord of Misrule with a brilliant instrumental performance.
