Their third performance in the city, the concert by 1990s soft rock band, “Michael Learns to Rock”, popularly known as MLTR, lit up Palace Grounds on Sunday evening.

With this, the Danish band will complete its India tour having delivered performances in Mumbai and Delhi earlier this week.

A popular band that walks a fine line between soft rock and pop music, which had a large fan following back in its heydays, still retains its popularity, it appears.

And MLTR did not disappoint. While playing several tracks from its latest offering, “Eternity”, which it is promoting, the band did play the classics too.

The ballad-like track “Sleeping Child”, “Someday” and the popular “Paint my love” and “That's why” were some of the older tracks that were played.


In a first of its kind pre-concert event, the band also interacted with fans at Reliance Time Out on Cunningham Road.

However, the poorly publicised event went unnoticed with less than 60 fans turning up at the outlet. However, fans who did turn up had a good time.

“I heard MLTR for the first time on my brother's computer, and I've been hooked ever since,” gushed Christopher D'souza (12).

Band members interacted with fans and took questions ranging from their opinion on Bollywood to what inspires their music. When asked on their opinion of Bangalore and its music quotient, guitarist Mikkel Lentz said that the fans here are “different and unique”.

“We're still a band, and together, only because of our love for the music we make, and our love for each other,” he said.

The band members also spoke of their love for the colourful Bollywood and even said they would love to be a part of Bollywood films.
