MTV Unplugged: Westernhagen

For a Artist MTV Unplugged is almost like a knightly accolade. A very special opportunity to present the musicality of the artists and the structural beauty

of the songs – to revitalize their biggest hits. Now Westernhagen has played his MTV Unplugged in Berlin and caused deepseated feelings of happiness, while he was presenting 24 of his songs unplugged in the context of two highly acclaimed concerts at Berlin Volksbühne.




According to Westernhagen, these concerts aren’t  about “to shoulder the guitars and do business as usual. It should be interesting for you and us.“

Marius Müller-Westernhagen and  his high-profile companions have also succeeded in this: supported by ex-flat share-mate Udo Lindenberg (“Mit Pfefferminz bin ich dein Prinz”), by his partner in life  Lindiwe Suttle (“Luft um zu atmen”), by his daughter Mimi (“Durch deine Liebe”) and Jan Plewka (“Mit 18”), Westernhagen was interpreting the most important moments of his nearly 50-year career in a new way.
