The highly successful annual “Rock meets Classic” concert series is set to celebrate its 10th Anniversary, with highlights being announced during the current 2019 tour.
With Superstar ALICE COOPER headlining, supported by the Rock meets Classic Ensemble, fans of the 2020 Anniversary Tour have much to look forward to! A long-standing legendary cult figure, shock-rocker Alice has accumulated a wide repertoire over the decades. Possible hits to be performed live range from "School’s Out", "I'm 18" to "Poison" and "House of Fire". The actual repertoire during the ALICE COOPER performances at the 2020 RmC cannot yet be revealed. But as Mat Sinner, the musical director of RmC explains, one thing’s for sure: after the acclaimed guest performances in 2014", "Alice absolutely wanted to come on stage with us again. Mr. Cooper’s guitarist, Tommy Henriksen, who also plays with the Hollywood Vampires, will be back with him on the 2020 Rock meets Classic Tour!
Besides Alice Cooper, another major attraction will be Joyce "Baby Jean" Kennedy, lead singer of Funk/Rock/Soul Band Mother’s Finest. Their sudden rise to fame in Germany (and the rest of Europe) was thanks to their 1978 ground-breaking WDR "Rockpalast" live performance.
The 2020 Rock meets Classic Tour kicks off with British hard rock legends, THUNDER. Following their reunion in 2011, their album “Wonder Days” released in 2015 also entered the UK Albums Chart at #9, later topping the UK Rock and Metal Albums Chart. Their next album: "Rip It Up" released in 2017 reached #24 on the Official German Album Charts. Since 1989, music aficionados have always known that THUNDER are among the world’s best live rock acts.
