David Hasselhoff will be at the Gold Coast Supanova Pop Culture Expo in Australia this month. The fan convention at the Gold Coast will be April 19-21 at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Center. David is keen to hang out with his fans.
“If you haven’t been to one of these fan conventions, then get ready,” he said.
“I doubt you’ve been to anything else quite like … they’re a bit like a one very big Halloween party. People come from everywhere to meet their favourite stars and most of them dress up.” Hasselhoff would be surprised if he didn’t see fans channelling characters from his TV hits The Young and the Restless, Knight Rider and Baywatch.
“I sing at concerts and go to parties all the time where almost everyone in the room is dressed-up to look like me. I suppose you sort of get used to it,” he said. He remembered one fan who presented her butt cheek to show him a tattooed picture of himself and asked him to autograph it.
With a stellar cast of guests, heaps of interactive comps and events, masses of retailers and Artist Alley vendors, legends of the industry such as Weta from New Zealand and so much more, from the worlds of film, TV, anime, gaming, comic-books, authors and more! It’s not to be missed!

BERLIN — David Hasselhoff put his name behind a campaign to preserve one of the few remaining sections of the Berlin Wall, calling it a “sacred” monument to cheers Sunday from Germans who fondly remember his schmaltzy hit “Looking for Freedom” as one of the soundtracks to their peaceful 1989 revolution.
The actor, best known for starring in “Knight Rider” and “Baywatch,” joined ordinary Berliners in protesting a real estate developer’s plans to move part of the wall to make way for an access path for a luxury housing development.
“It’s like tearing down an Indian burial ground. It’s a no-brainer,” said Hasselhoff, before recounting his own memories of visiting East Germany – grim cities, grim food – shortly before unification.
Plans to move part of the East Side Gallery – a 1.3 kilometer (3/4 mile) stretch of wall painted by artists after the fall of communism and popular with tourists – sparked angry protests earlier this month. Activists have denounced it as part of a wider trend of steamrolling Berlin’s tumultuous history to make way for gleaming but soulless developments in the heart of the city.
At least 136 people died between 1961 and 1989 trying to cross the wall that divided the communist-run East Berlin from West Berlin. Most of the wall has since been destroyed, with only two large sections remaining as memorials.
“It’s a stupid idea to rip parts of the wall out for luxury apartments,” said Roland Junge, one of thousands of locals who accompanied Hasselhoff on an impromptu walk along the wall Sunday.
“This last piece of the wall is really sacred,” Hasselhoff told reporters. “It’s about people and it’s about hearts that were broken, hearts that were torn apart and lives that were lost. That’s what we’re talking about today, not a piece of real estate.”
Asked if he thought his song – belted out by a million people on both sides of the wall during a New Year’s Eve concert in 1989 – had played any role in bringing down the most visible section of the Iron Curtain, Hasselhoff said: “Whether it had anything to do with anything, it’s a song about freedom and it stuck in their head because it had a good hook.”
Berliners can prepare for a reprise if talks involving the developers, authorities and campaigners fail to reach a compromise next week.
“If it goes to the next step, we’ll come back with a huge concert and really rock Berlin,” said ‘The Hoff.’

Well, I guess it’s official.. the home David Hasselhoff has owned for over 15 years might have a buyer. David put the house up for sale last November, according to the Huffington Post. Hasselhoff purchased the property back in 1991 for around $2.9 million and is selling it for $3.7 million.
The new owner of the Hasselhouse will enjoy 8,947 square feet of a Southern Colonial-home, with cathedral-vaulted ceilings, an elevator, fancy marble foyer, library, gym, and lots and lots of windows.
The 1.5-acre Valley property also boasts expansive lawns, two guest houses, a tennis court with viewing pavilion, spa, and of course, a swimming pool (with slide!).
While Redfin posted the estate as pending, the new owner of the Valley home will enjoy the pleasures of a massive abode that feature vaulted ceilings seen in cathedrals, an elevator, a library and gym, reported TooFab.
According to Redfin, the sweeping marble foyer takes you to an iron staircase and a 2-storey living room, and library is embellished in wood paneling that continues to the pub room. It also features a family/media room, chef’s kitchen and sun room.
The entrance also leads you to a long driveway with a circular motor court, just the way the former “Knight Rider” liked it.
The outdoor also features expansive lawns, two separate guest houses, and a tennis court where you can get to view from a enchanting pavilion.

Today, David Hasselhoff was a guest on Huffington Post Live about the recent protests over the Berlin Wall being taken down. He says the best way to fight money is with money, and would be willing to do whatever it takes to keep the wall, even if that means doing a concert. He wants to raise enough money to even buy back the property from developers.
President Reagan famously told Gorbachev to “tear it down,” but Berliners (and guest David Hasselhoff) want to stop the demolition of the last parts of the Berlin Wall.

In the past he has compained that his role in helping the Berlin Wall come down has been overlooked.
Now David Hasselhoff has joined a campaign calling for the longest remaining part of the barrier to stay standing.
The US actor, who is adored by fans in Germany after his 1989 performance of his song Looking for Freedom on top of the Wall, told his Twitter followers that he would sign a petition opposing the demolition of a section beside Berlin’s East Side Gallery to make way for a bridge leading to a block of flats.
The Baywatch and Knight Rider star tweeted on Monday morning: “How can you tear down the wall that signifies freedom, perseverance and the sacrifice of human life?”, along with a link to the petition, which has already been signed by more than 62,000.
The partial demolition of the 0.8-mile (1.3km) stretch in the district of Friedrichshain has triggered outrage and led thousands to protest at the site on Sunday.
A 1.5-metre (5ft) section of the wall was removed before the first protests on Friday. Another 18.5 metres is due to be dismantled, but public fury has brought the work to a temporary halt until 18 March when representatives of the developers Living Bauhaus are to meet Berlin’s senate and district government.
Volker Thoms, a spokesman for Maik Uwe Hinkel, the project’s investor, said the pieces were being removed to make way for the rebuilding of a bridge destroyed during the second world war, not for the flats themselves. He said the removal was being carried out on behalf of Berlin’s district authorities but that the bridge would also provide access to the apartments being developed.
“Mr Hinkel doesn’t need it [the wall] to be removed. He would also be happy if another solution could be found. It has to be discussed,” Thoms said.
Alex Klausmeier, director of the Berlin Wall Memorial association, said he was surprised by the strong public reaction, but happy that the issue was being given so much attention.
“The wall is such an important part of Berlin’s history and that people are in the streets demonstrating … shows that the wall is something special,” he said. “It’s important to keep it as it is.”
