Night of the Proms 2018 with Bryan Ferry, John Miles, Milow, The Pointer Sisters and Tim Bendzko

The Night of the Proms is a unique music event in Europe. Since 1994, the show has thrilled a steadily growing fan base in Germany. Classical music meets Pop, Aria meets charts, suit meets leather jacket, stilettos meets chucks and Tchaikovsky meets Boy George.

Like no other event, the Night of the Proms stands for the bridge between all musical genres. Exactly this mixture sets them apart from all other concerts and gives them an incomparable experience value. The fact that each year many of the more than 100,000 people secure tickets for the shows in advance, without knowing which star guests they expect, is an expression of the over the years grown and repeatedly confirmed confidence of the fans in the quality of the shows.

One of the guarantors of this is the 75-strong Antwerp Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Alexandra Arrieche, who accompanied the series of events right from the start and oscillated with unbelievable enthusiasm and brilliance between the different musical styles and epochs. And the “house band” of the Proms, the NOTP-Backbones, is a reliable size for the Proms seal of quality. Finally, an overwhelming light and projection design and superb sound make the Night of the Proms an unforgettable audiovisual music happening. For these reasons, the exquisite show was and is an integral part of the pre-Christmas cultural calendar of the German Touring Cities.

BRYAN FERRY, MILOW, TIM BENDZKO and the POINTER SISTERS are the artistic pillars of the Jubilee edition of the Night of the Proms. In the 25th year of the successful history of this classic-meets-pop-tour, the organizer presents the essence of the actual idea of this crossover experience in perfection. Take exceptionally strong artists from the most diverse decades and genres of pop history and present their legendary hits accompanied by a symphony orchestra, which also conjures up the most popular hits of the classical era between the individual pop acts. The result is an audiovisual work of art that takes visitors on a technically elaborately produced and varied journey through 300 years of popular music.

For 25 years, the Night of the Proms stages the bridge between classical and popular music as part of an annual tour of the arenas of Germany and despite all the hostility and concerns of the early days has developed into the most successful festival tour in Europe. Not only did it open the doors to the mainstream audience for classical music, but it also helped numerous classical soloists such as ANDREA BOCELLI and DAVID GARRETT make a breakthrough in Germany. With more than ten million visitors worldwide, the Night of the Proms today stands for technically perfectly staged live entertainment that knows no bounds.

For the birthday party, a stylistically extraordinary mix of artists meets again this year to present their greatest hits in the company of the Antwerp Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of the Brazilian Alexandra Arrieche. In addition to the British icon BRYAN FERRY, the Belgian pop star MILOW, the German soul jazzman TIM BENDZKO and the US power women from the POINTER SISTERS, John Miles and the classic guitarist Petrit Ceku will complete the program.
