Move over David Hasselhoff, Germany's got a new singing star!

Kevin Costner and his band Modern West have been touring Europe, and the kick-off concert was Monday night in the town of Jüchen near Cologne – to a sold-out audience of 700.

The Oscar-winning actor was pumped to see such a large crowd for his first show and said to the audience, "I wasn't sure if anyone would come, but I'd like to thank you and your town."

Still, Costner knows his appeal with female fans and took the opportunity to apologize to the men in the audience. "If you got dragged here by your wives or girlfriends, I'm sorry," he said, according to the Neuss-Grevenbroicher Zeitung.

If the men-folk minded, they didn't say anything. Local critics, who described the music as country-infused rock, gave Costner the thumbs up.

Costner's tour continues Friday in Berlin, where Modern West is playing at a fund-raising gala for McDonald's children's charity at the Grand Hyatt hotel.
