DANISH pop-rock band Michael Learns to Rock (MLTR) which last performed in the Philippines in 2008, returns for a one-night concert on September 19 at Smart Araneta Coliseum. It was initially a quartet composed of Jascha Richter (vocals, keyboards), Mikkel Lentz (guitar), Kåre Wanscher (drums) and Soren Madsen (bass), until Madsen left in 2000. MLTR’s 1991 self-titled debut album, with the track “The Actor,” was a hit in Scandinavia and a few Asian countries. The band’s follow-up record, 1993’s “Colours,” sold over a million copies on the strength of the singles “Sleeping Child,” “25 Minutes,” and “Out of the Blue”—establishing MLTR as a major international act. More albums followed, accompanied by successful tours, until the band took a prolonged break starting in 2000, but regrouped in 2004. It last studio album, “Scandinavia,” was released in 2012; a single, “Eternal Love,” was recorded in 2014 as the theme of a Korean TV drama, “Healer.”
