DJ BOBO is one of the world’s best-known musicians from Switzerland. In the 90s you couldn’t miss hits like: “There Is A Party” or “Everybody”. Eurodance era moved on but his music and unbelievable shows have stayed. With over 25 years on stage and in the music business, Rene Baumann alias DJ BOBO knows how he can still impress his fans and fill arenas many artists dream of. With his “KaleidoLuna”-Tour he proves once again, that he is still the “King Of Dance”.
In Oberhausen DJ BOBO performed in front of 8.000 people.
Normally, the König-Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen has space for around 12.000 People but due to the fact, that the DJ BOBO shows are seated, there isn’t that much space left. But with 8.000 people it was almost sold out. This is actually an amazing rate because on this tour, DJ BOBO has also announced dates in big venues in Cologne and Dortmund and all three cities are close to each other.
DJ BOBO came to Oberhausen with a 2-hour show.
The evening started pretty early, although there was no opening act. The reason for this is simple: DJ BOBO knows there are always many families with children in his shows. To make it comfortable for the children, he starts early. Also, the stage design is pretty elaborate and it must take some time to get it into the busses again.
After over 25 years on stage, DJ BOBO still knows how to enchant people.
With “KaleidoLuna”, DJ BOBO released his newest masterpiece and with it, he created a new breath-taking stage design and show. DJ BOBO just knows what his fans love. And with this love, he connects his fans from the start with the new generation.
DJ BOBO is ageless and enchants people of all ages with his new music as well as the older songs. The audience in Oberhausen loved every song, but one could clearly see, that the old ones are still the hits, which the people love the most. Although it was a seated concert, no one in the venue sat on their chair for so long. When the first hit-song started, everyone jumped up and started dancing.
DJ BOBO led through the show with a lot of interesting stories.
Between the songs, DJ BOBO led through the show with a lot of fun and interesting stories. So, once he showed up how he has started his career by showing all his released LP’s. Everything with a lot of humor by not taking everything too serious. On another occasion, DJ BOBO let a 6-year-old play some kind of drums on stage. Literally, a dream came true for this little boy and the audience gave them so much respect and love, it was just beautiful to watch.
This part of this show was about the band QUEEN. Sure, QUEEN is for many of us a big musically influence, also for DJ BOBO. The 6-year-old boy should try to play the famous drums of “We Will Rock You”. It was just the cutest thing I’ve ever seen during a show. And also cute to see how lovely DJ BOBO works with children.
Perfect sound, excellent dancers and singers, amazing stage design and a great setlist – DJ BOBO made the audience happy.
I’ve been at the König-Pilsener Arena a couple of times, but there has never been such a clear sound in this venue. Sure, it wasn’t as loud as I normally know it, but, again, many children attend DJ BOBO’s concerts and it’s great that he takes care of them. The big surprise for me: DJ BOBO has a live band on tour! This was something I didn’t expect because it’s more about the show and dance and less about having a live band.
The stage design was pretty elaborate and it was hard to focus on only one thing. The eyes got so many things to see and times went by so fast because there were so many things that happened on stage. It’s hard to describe the stage design because it changed with the different songs, too.
It was also nice to see, that DJ BOBO gave his singers and dancers the chance to show their talent while he was more in the back and not so much in the focus of the audience. They all did an amazing job and it was so much fun to watch them. I can’t forget to mention Jesse Ritch, who joined DJ BOBO’s crew some time ago and his voice fit perfectly to the songs. Some might already have known him because he reached the 3rd place on Germany’s “Deutschland
Attending a DJ BOBO concert is escaping the hard, real world for some time to recharge the batteries.
During this over-2-hour show, you could forget all your problems and just have fun. You were able to recharge your batteries and you felt like being back into the time you were young and carefree. DJ BOBO’s music is for everyone. It’s great to see music connecting people of all ages to have a good time.
It was just a perfect show and evening. I’m not sure if a seated venue is such a good choice for his shows because the fans want to dance. But for the security of the children, it is. One could say DJ BOBO didn’t dance as much as 25 years ago. But that would be just unfair because we all get older and it’s just natural for the body and condition to change over the years. He is still a great dancer but just doesn’t show it that much during the shows anymore. But altogether it was a very impressive and beautiful evening.
In 2022 DJ BOBO will go on a big anniversary tour to celebrate his 30th anniversary on stage.
