Engelbert Humperdinck

When: Sun., May 8, 7:30 p.m. 2016

One of the last of the old school lounge/soft rock singers who sings about romantic love like it’s something precious, Engelbert Humperdinck hammed it up when he appeared at Hard Rock Live at Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park back in 2014. And yet Humperdinck, who returns to the venue at 7:30 on Sunday, May 8, still took soft rock seriously enough that older members of the crowd didn't think he was just phoning it in and goofing around. Humperdinck devoted most of the second half of that 2014 show to playing material from 2014's Engelbert Calling, an album of duets that debuted in the UK Top-40 Album Charts at No. 31. The album features duets with Charles Aznavour, Elton John, Il Divo, Johnny Mathis, Lulu, Willie Nelson, Olivia Newton-John, Cliff Richard, Smokey Robinson, Kenny Rogers, Neil Sedaka, Ron Sexsmith, Gene Simmons and Dionne Warwick. At 80, the singer shows no signs of slowing down and comes to town as a part of a world tour that will take him to places such as Cairo, Singapore and the Philippines. (Niesel)
