Modern Talking & Thomas Anders, Budapest Park, 15 September
Thomas Anders, is a German singer, best known as the lead singer of German duo Modern Talking. Starting his singing career while still in school, Anders unsuccessfully attempted to establish himself as a schlager artist for several years.

After forming the eurodisco duo Modern Talking with Dieter Bohlen in 1984, they became a worldwide sensation with their hit "You're My Heart, You're My Soul".

After the break-ups of Modern Talking, Anders performed as a solo artist during the 1990s and after 2003. During the first Modern Talking split, he released six studio albums, none of which managed to chart, whereas some singles such as "Love of My Own" achieved mediocre success.

Only his Spanish language album Barcos de Cristal (1994) proved successful in Argentina, where its eponymous title track climbed to number 1.

Following the second break-up, he started a more successful solo career, with his album This Time (2004) reaching number 14 in Germany and producing number 1 hits in Russia and Turkey. His 2010 album Strong reached Platinum status in Russia for sales of more than 650.000 units.

While being unable to match his success with Modern Talking with his solo career, Anders is considered a musical icon in Eastern Europe, where he is more revered than in his native country and regularly performs stadium tours.

In April 2017, Anders released his first German language song in almost 35 years, "Der beste Tag meines Lebens".

While it failed to chart, the accompanying studio album Pures Leben, promoted as his first German language release, peaked to number 14 in Germany.

Anders has stated that he was pleasantly surprised by the album's success, asserting that he is more popular abroad than in his home country, fully knowing that people would most likely be indifferent to a German language album by him.
