Ticket prices

3300 Ft | 4500 Ft | 5900 Ft | 7900 Ft | 9900 Ft

Featuring: Eszter Váczi – voice
The members of the band: Attila László – guitar, Béla Lattmann – bass guitar, Péter Csiszár – saxophone, János Halász – keyboards, András Póta – drums

As the lead singer of Decca, Olympia and Generál, Charlie was a major figure of the heroic age of Hungarian beat music and rock, who also toured internationally with Afriaca and Pannónia Express. In the 1980s, there was a fair chance you had to go abroad to hear his distinctive voice. He returned to Hungary in 1990, joining Tátrai Band, before re-establishing himself as a Hungarian pop legend with a solo career he began in 1994.
He developed his unmistakably individual style from a combination of blues, jazz, soul and funky. Richly orchestrated and tastefully harmonized, his songs have lyrics that always reflect on real experiences, which may explain why most of Charlie’s hits became classics almost immediately. Just how many classics are we talking about? Come and be surprised at the Budapest Spring Festival, and alongside the well-known songs, get a taster of the new album as well.

This concert of the Budapest Spring Festival is presented by Müpa Budapest.
