The ‘U-Bahn Kontrollöre’ are living legends in the German a cappella scene. Always somewhat singular and never afraid to cross the barriers of the genre (not to mention taste!), their sharp, funny and ingenious shows and songs have helped shape a cappella comedy in Germany and set the bar high. Officially, the quintet retired in 2009, only occasionally coming out of the woodwork for performances in their home region of Hesse. But they clearly couldn’t resist the call of the a cappella Festival, and so roundabout 30 years after their very first appearance, the five cult bards will be performing in Leipzig for the second time! Poised somewhere between genius and satire, songcraft and self-mockery, the quintet will make for a memorable evening and let rip with their ‘hardcore a cappella’ as if they’d never been away!
