Munich: Helene Fischer in the Olympiahalle – a concert review – Munich

The German Schlager used to look longingly to Italy or Spain. The pop singer Helene Fischer, however, always ready to offer a little more than her predecessors, dreams of a trip to Mars when she describes her newly ignited passion for another person: “Vamos a marte!” “I’m losing control,” she sings as she masters every dance move in sync with the other dancers on stage. Just as the entire three-hour show that Fischer delivers on the first of five concert evenings in Munich’s Olympiahalle requires constant self-control, not only because of the daring acrobatics that she also offers her fans. Supported by the Canadian circus company Cirque du Soleil, she creates such a gigantic show that it makes a trip to Mars seem like a stone’s throw.
