The American entertainer David Hasselhoff (70) has to cancel his planned spring tour “with a heavy heart”. As the concert organizer River Concerts reports, a “serious eye disease” is thwarting his plans, which will not have subsided until the “Party your Hasselhoff tour. That makes it impossible for the “Baywatch” star to hold the concerts.” I was so looking forward to celebrating ‘Party Your Hasselhoff’ with you guys in two weeks’ time,” the singer and actor is quoted as saying in the statement. However, his doctors advised him to cancel the entire tour.

He is “really sorry” that he “has to disappoint everyone”. A total of ten shows were planned in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The kick-off should have taken place on March 15, 2023 in Regensburg. After appointments in Berlin, Hanover, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Schladming, Vienna, Graz and Munich, the finale was to be celebrated in Zurich on April 1, 2023. “Your refund will be processed using the payment method you used at the time of purchase. To do this, contact the advance booking office where you purchased your tickets,” says Hasselhoff personally, explaining the return procedure for his fans. Hasselhoff closes his statement with the words: “Love, David. PS: I’ll be back…”

David Hasselhoff became an international star in the 80s due to his leading role in the cult series “Knight Rider”. As a lifeguard from Malibu, he continued this success almost seamlessly with “Baywatch”. Hasselhoff was also able to establish himself as a musician and singer, especially in German-speaking countries. His biggest hit was undoubtedly “Looking for Freedom”, with which he commemorated himself thanks to his legendary performance on New Year’s Eve 1989 in front of the Berlin Wall in a shiny leather jacket.
