After a sold-out performance at NYC’s Irving Plaza earlier this year, Herbert Grönemeyer, the most acclaimed and best-selling rock artist ever in Germany, will launch his first full US tour in September. Herbert and his 5-piece band will perform songs from his English language album, ‘I Walk,’ which includes guest performances from Bono and Antony Hegarty and was featured on NPR Weekend Edition this spring in a segment titled “The ‘German Bruce Springsteen’ Tackles English-Language Rock”: http://n.pr/Z8I0Bu
A live concert special for PBS, ‘I Walk: Live In Concert,’ featuring two duets with Bono, is airing nationally throughout the month of June. Herbert and Bono sing an English version of Herbert's biggest hit “Mensch,” and also a version of the U2 classic “Stuck In A Moment.”

In a feature on ‘I Walk,’ The UK’s Telegraph hailed Grönemeyer as “a songwriter of the highest order, a deep lyricist and richly melodic composer with a vigorous stage presence, whose thoughtful songs deal with the real stuff of life.” Bono adds “There’s always more to Herbert’s songs than you first hear."
A true renaissance man, Grönemeyer first came to prominence in Germany starring in the classic film ‘Das Boot.’ He has sold over 18 million albums and recorded a song for the World Cup. He has appeared in several other films including Anton Corbijn’s ‘Control,’ about the band Joy Division, and he scored ‘The American,’ starring George Clooney. Grönemeyer also runs the record label Grönland, which has reissued seminal Krautrock albums by Neu!, Klaus Dinger and Harmonia, plus new releases by Metric, Gang of Four and others.
