An Evening with David Hasselhoff - tickets for February/ March 2012 UK dates on sale Wednesday 26th October
The modern age presents unlikely heroes at times. Among the current crop is a middle-aged American actor with German ancestry who has enjoyed a successful music career across continental Europe but whose musical stylings have been met with little more than derision at home and in the UK.
He was, however, also the star of two of the most successful TV shows in history. He first came to global prominence as Michael Knight in the phenomenally successful 'Knight Rider' ('the car talks!') and then, from 1989 until 2001, in 'Baywatch' ('babes running in swimwear, at tea time!').
In-between the two shows, Hasselhoff built a reputation as something of a rock star in Germany and German-speaking Europe. His hits 'Looking for Freedom' and 'Crazy for You' both reached No 1 in Germany in 1989, with the former being performed atop the iconic Brandenburg Gate just weeks after the Berlin wall had come down. That must've been brilliant.
Post-Baywatch, and now styled as 'The Hoff', The Hoff embarked on a series of reality show appearances that have included 'America's Got Talent' and the British equivalent, and a 2010 appearance on 'Dancing with the Stars' (the US take on 'Strictly Come Dancing', he was the first voted out).
All of which has, in a roundabout way, brought David Hasselhoff a unique place in the affections of a public that sneered at his TV shows and belittled his musical success. But The Hoff gets the joke. He's in on it; has been all along.
And he is preparing to share his take on running with Yasmine Bleeth in 'Baywatch', talking to KITT and serenading a unified Germany in a one-man 'Evening with...' show that promises music, laughter, clips and more from Hasselhoff's unparalleled career.
An Evening with David Hasselhoff begins its UK tour in Birmingham on Thursday 23rd February, followed by shows in Newcastle, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Manchester and Nottingham, before the final Evening of the tour at the IndigO2 (at The O2) in London on 2nd March.
We will have tickets for all dates when they go on sale at 9.30AM on Wednesday 26th October 2011, priced £30 for London and £25 for all other venues.
[Ahead of the 'Evening With' shows, you can catch the Hoff in Bristol's Peter Pan pantomime at the Hippodrome. Oh yes you can - Ed].
Update: all tour dates cancelled, except London
With the exception of London's IndigO2, all of the 'An Evening with David Hasselhoff' dates have been cancelled. Ticket-holders for all dates except London should obtain a refund at your point of purchase.
Tickets for the IndigO2 date are still available, costing £30.
