Berlin, which created one of the most memorable songs of the 80s with “Take My Breath Away,” is coming to Canyon Santa Clarita later this month, as part of a lengthy tour.
The group, which has earned a dozen gold and platinum records since 1982, still tours with original vocalist Terri Nunn, who also earned a spot on VH1’s “100 Greatest Women in Rock.”
“Berlin will forever be recognized as the American progenitor of electro-pop artistry with sensually appealing lyrics,” according to the Canyon Santa Clarita website. “Few bands emerging from the era of Berlin have achieved as far-reaching and long-lasting an impact and, rarely, such a timeless array of musical grooves.”
In addition to the ballad that earned the band a no. 1 international hit and received both the Golden Globe and Academy Award for “Best Original Song” in 1986, the band still tours with hits like “The Metro” and “No More Words.” Tickets are still available for when the group comes to town on Friday, Feb. 28.
Regional fan favorite Aspen and all-woman rock band Precious Metal will be the opening acts for Berlin.
