The success story began exactly 30 years ago. After an acclaimed appearance on "Wetten dass...?", "Rock meets Classsic" went on tour through 30 German cities for the first time in 1993. At that time, the RmC Symphony Orchestra, which was responsible for the classical sounds, consisted of 16 members, but since 2010 the ensemble has been enlarged to 42 musicians. Big names from the line-ups of the 2010s included Ian Gillan (Deep Purple), Midge Ure (Ultravox), Kim Wilde and Alice Cooper. The stars were always accompanied by the Mat Sinner Band, which was responsible for the rock sound.
On 16 April 2023, the fans in Munich can look forward to Joey Tempest and Dee Snider as well as many other renowned artists: Mick Box and Bernie Shaw, for example, who, as legends of Uriah Heep, will of course talk about their "Lady In Black", among other things. Also in the programme: Maggie Reilly, who once had a world hit as a singer with Mike Oldfield's "Moonlight Shadow". And Ronnie Romero, the powerful-voiced singer from Rainbow, who will be performing "Long Live Rock'n'Roll" in the Olympic Hall. Or Mike Tramp, who as the head of White Lion will of course sing about "Radar Love".
