Nirvana, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan – and now: Patent Ochsner. The band from Bern will be the first Swiss act to perform in the context of “MTV Unplugged”. The recordings are planned for October 2021 in Bern, as the record company Universal Music announced.
With this project, the band is opening up a “wonderfully comprehensive and wide field”, frontman Büne Huber is quoted in Tuesday’s communiqué. He experiences the rehearsals equally as “a lively step into the distance” and “a coming home”.
As the “MTV Unplugged” tradition wants, no further information – for example about surprise guests – will be revealed at this point in time. What is certain, however, is that the recordings will take place in Casino Bern. In addition, a corresponding live album and concert film are to be released in February 2022.
Patent Ochsner are celebrating their 30th stage anniversary this year. In 2020 the dialect band was honored for their life’s work at the Swiss Music Awards. On June 21, Patent Ochsner will perform as part of a test concert with 500 people in Bern’s Bierhübeli. (sda)
