THE ORIGINAL ROCK MEETS CLASSIC TOUR 2016
Feel the excitement… experience the original ROCK MEETS CLASSIC tour, with the mix of the world’s best rock stars and classic music in perfection. For the 7th year in a row this legendary crossover-project combines world-renowned rock hits with soulful classical music. In this 3-hour manifesto you’ll get a new understanding of classical and original songs - live in concert, interpreted by rock singers and supported by a first-class orchestra and band!
The song “The Final Countdown” has been influencing whole generations. It helped JOEY TEMPEST and his band “Europe” to commercial leverage. The Single hit No. 1 in over 26 countries and sold over 8 million copies over the first two years. The following album which was also named “The Final Countdown” became another international success and sold over 7 million copies. On June 7th “Europe” celebrated their 30-year anniversary by headlining the Sweden Rock Festival 2013 in Sölvesborg. The hymn-like “The Final Countdown”, the impressive “Rock the Night” and the heartfelt ballad “Carrie” are smash hits. “Europe” is becoming the rock-idol of the 80s.
Kansas’ “Dust in the Wind” (from the ’77 album “Point of know Return”) and “Carry On Wayward Son” are both Evergreens and are still leading the American Classic Radio charts under the title “most broadcasted song”. The matching albums “Point of know Return” and “Leftoverture” gained Platinum Status. The band around their singer STEVE WALSH sold more than 15 million copies, but in early 2014 STEVE WALSH bid them goodbye, reaching for future solo-projects. After over 40-years with “Kansas” he played his last gig on august 16th, 2014 in Sioux City – a great success.
MIDGE URE celebrated his biggest wins not only as lead-singer of the new-wave group Ultravox and with songs like “Dancing with Tears in my Eyes”, “Vienna” and “Hymn” but also as a solo-artist throughout the years 1980-1985 (“If I was”). UREs’ social engagement earned him i. a. an honorary degree and the title of “Officer of the British Empire” (OBE). To this day he is successfully touring around the world as a solo-artist.
The Irish Hard-Rock and Heavy-Metal band THIN LIZZY – together with its founding members RICKY WARWICK & SCOTT GORHAM heavily shaped the New Wave of British Heavy Metal Scene with their two-part guitar-riffs. Their albums sold far more than 20 million times, and tunes like “The Boys Are Back in Town”, “Jailbreak” or “Whisky in the Jar” are true classics. The live album “Live & Dangerous” claims it’s fame as one of the best live albums ever made.
With over 55 million sold album copies THE SWEET had 34 number one Hits around the world, touring 44 countries and interpreting timeless chart-breakers like “Blockbuster”, “Hell Raiser”, “The Ballroom Blitz”, “Action”, “Fox on the Run”, “Love is like Oxygen” and many, many more. Lead-singer PETE LINCOLN (former Sailer) and founding-member ANDY SCOTT will revive the memory of the twinkling 70s Glam Rock Times. Trippy outfits, screeching guitars and downright top-hits: The Sweet is a British Rock-Phenomenon that has taken continents by storm throughout decades and continues to do so by touring with us.
Nazareth: one of the first-generations hard & heavy bands. Together with others like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple & Black Sabbath, they paved the way for the future Hard Rock and (a little later) Heavy Metal Genre. Singer DAN McCAFFERTY sold over 60 million records together with his band and Nazareth shares its fame of being the most successful rock-band of all times in Scotland only with the Simple Minds. The distinctive raspy-smoky voice of DAN McCAFFERTY swayed “Love Hurts”, “Dream On” or “This Fly Tonight”. After some health issues DAN McCAFFERTY had to leave his band in august 2013 but he’ll get back up into the spotlight only for ROCK MEETS CLASSIC and to perform once again on the planks that meant his world.
DORO Pesch is a living legend!!! At least that should be evident since 2013 when the so called “Queen of Rock & Metal” performed in England at the “Golden Gods Awards” and went off stage as the first winner of the newly invented “Legends Award” of the O2 Arena in London. This was the provisional climax for DORO in her 30 years of stage performances. DORO is looking back on a truthfully unique runway in the music biz. DORO – that name is numbers: gold and platinum awards for about 10 million sold records, over 2.800 live-shows in four continents and 60 countries, 16 studio albums, four DVD’s, innumerable cover-pictures on every appreciable music-magazine in this world and millions of fans, that worship the ground she walks on.
The MAT SINNER BAND and the BOHEMIAN SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA of Prague are going to put a new spotlight on ALL THOSE WORLD-STARS – in highest quality as usual. A total of 60 artists create a dazzling mix of music live on stage. And the specially designed and created light-concept makes ROCK MEETS CLASSIC also a visual highlight for everyone.
Be excited about a remarkable concert-event that is going to entertain former and todays generations of Rock-Fans just the same!!!
