Back by popular demand, new wave band Berlin returned to the stage in the Holiday Bay Room at the lodge on Saturday evening to perform for a sold-out crowd. The band first performed in Canyon Lake in June 2017. For their second concert in Canyon Lake, Terri Nunn was joined by David Diamond and John Crawford, two of Berlin’s original band members.
The band opened the concert with their hit song “No More Words,” followed by Metro and Masquerade. In the middle of the setlist they performed “Animal,” a single on their latest album.
Canyon Lake resident Adam McNaughton was asked to be a part of the show. He carried Terri on his shoulders through the aisle during her performance of “You Don’t Know Me.”
A couple dozen audience members were invited on stage to dance with the band during their performance of “Dancing in Berlin.”
Terri belted out a rendition of AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell” for the band’s encore song. The performance had the audience on their feet and out of their seats.
Concertgoers lined up at the Meet and Greet table after the show for a chance to meet the band, get autographs and purchase merchandise.
Before Berlin took the stage, the audience was treated to a special surprise performance by Makayla Phillips. The 15-year-old singer is a Canyon Lake resident and recent contestant on the popular television show America’s Got Talent. Makayla performed two songs; one by the Jackson 5 and the other by Whitney Houston. She received a standing ovation. Berlin invited Makayla back on stage to join them in singing their final song of the evening.
Award-winning singer/songwriter Chris James performed after Makayla. Chris has shared the stage with national acts such as Sugar Ray, Gin Blossoms, REO Speedwagon and now Berlin.
Doug Schultz, concert promoter for the POA’s “Concerts at the Lodge,” announced this week the concert lineup for 2019; Missing Persons on Feb. 9, Great White on Apr. 6, The Motels on June 26 and country music artist Craig Campbell on Nov. 2.
