Howard Carpendale on tour

H. Carpendale 16.2.16 Tempodrom-20
He is the last great entertainer we have in Germany. Charming and down-to-earth – this is Howard Carpendale. At the moment, he demonstrates his LIVE qualities with the successful “DAS IST UNSERE ZEIT” (THIS IS OUR TIME) tour 2015 / 2016 through Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Jointly with his eleven band members, he inspires with a dynamic show and his wit and energy, but also more reflective moments.
Howard Carpendale started his career as an Elvis imitator and beat singer in South Africa. At the end of the 1960’s, he came to Europe and tried his luck as a singer, which was a complete success. His first publication in Germany already sold 60,000 times. The entertainer, who was born in Durban, South Africa, has been very successful since the 1970’s. He has sold more than 50 million records so far. In 2002, Howard Carpendale announced the end of his career on stage and held his final concert in the Kölnarena one year later. Luckily, Howard Carpendale changed his mind and went back on stage in 2008, still giving atmospheric concerts in sold-out halls.

After successful rehearsals in our studio, Howard Carpendale and his band hit the road and are currently on their “Das ist unsere Zeit” tour, with performances in e.g. the following cities in 2016…
