Rock meets Classic 2024 with Tarja Turunen, John Helliwell & Jesse Siebenberg, Midge Ure, Robert Hart, Paul Shortino and Russ Ballard

The 2023 tour (including EUROPE, URIAH HEEP) is still fresh in the memory of all Rock meets Classic visitors, as organizer Manfred Hertlein is already building excitement for 2024 by announcing the stars for the RmC concert tour next April. And this line-up is simply spectacular!

Fans can look forward to Tarja Turunen, the original singer of the Symphonic Metal Superstars NIGHTWISH. Tarja is considered one of the best Rock singers in the world and fits perfectly with Rock meets Classic due to her opera training and fantastic vocal colour. The Finn embodies the fusion of rock and classical like no other! RmC organizer Manfred Hertlein: “Tarja and RmC are a fantastic match - she is the perfect choice for us as the headliner of the 2024 tour! In addition, we are very happy with the entire lineup.”

And indeed, this line-up is more than impressive and has plenty of “Greatest Rock Hits” in store! Including John Helliwell & Jesse Siebenberg of SUPERTRAMP. The duo first appeared on the RmC stage in 2018 and impressed with songs like ‘Dreamer’, ‘Give A Little Bit’ and ‘School’. Also, in the fantastic RmC program for 2024: Midge Ure (ULTRAVOX), who last mesmerized the audience in 2016 with his energetic show and dreamy songs like ‘Vienna’ and ‘Dancing With Tears in My Eyes.’

As a special guest, Rock icon Russ Ballard will take the RmC stage. Ballard has two great hits of his own with ‘On The Rebound’ and the ‘Miami Vice’ song ‘Voices’. Additionally, the Brit has written dozens of songs for superstars like KISS, Roger Daltrey (THE WHO), Ringo Starr (THE BEATLES), and ABBA singer Agnetha Fältskog, from which he will “magically” create an exclusive surprise set for RmC.

RmC fans can also look forward to Robert Hart, the charismatic frontman of MANFRED MANN’S EARTH BAND, and timeless hits like ‘Mighty Quinn’ and ‘For You’. Making their debut and warmly welcomed: Singer Paul Shortino of QUIET RIOT, who conquered the music world in the 80s with their anthem ‘Cum On Feel The Noize’ and became the first metal band ever to top the US Billboard Charts with the album ‘Metal Health’!

This high-calibre lineup is sure to make Rock meets Classic 2024 an exciting event. Tickets for the spectacle are available via Eventim.
