Adele – a name everyone knows, as well as the incompareable, powerful voice behind her. It’s not surprising that her shows neither require dancers in tight outfits or high-tech special effects, nor a costume change every two songs, because Adele’s concerts focus on what is supposed to be focused on. The music.   Black Box was honored to be part of the tour of award-winning and world musician Adele and provide the entire sound equipment for her 105 arena shows across Europe, the USA, Canada and South America. And it’s far from beeing over yet! (more…)
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 deep–seated 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.

Could Laurie Blue Adkins, mother to Adele, possible have guessed when she named her daughter that her little treasure would one day number among the “Adel” (nobility)? And we don’t just mean musical nobility here. In 2013, the singer was royally honoured with an OBE. And as if that wasn’t enough of a crowning achievement, Adele also scooped up two coveted trophies in the same year with her contribution to James Bond, “Skyfall”: a Golden Globe and an Oscar.

Who would have thought that, at a young age, Andreas Bourani gave some of his best performances in operas by Puccini and Mozart? It’s not unusual, though, for a musician to have classical training, but if we’re honest we’re delighted that he decided on modern pop music.
