Drawing on his love of 1920s and 1930s music, Max will be joined by 12 musical maestros from the Palast Orchester.

Together they aim to present a stunning classic and timeless repertoire in their original arrangement.

Next year marks a century since the beginning of ‘The Roaring Twenties’, and a period of economic prosperity with a distinctive cultural edge in the United States and Western Europe. 

It was a time when jazz blossomed, the flapper redefined the modern look for British and American women, and Art Deco peaked.

Nations saw rapid industrial growth, accelerated consumer demand, and significant new changes in lifestyle and culture.

The show will feature diverse range of music and songs including the hilarious Rosa, Reizende Rosa (Rosa, Ravishing Rosa); romantic tune Tonight Or Never; the classic Kurt Weill’s Mack The Knife; alongside standards including I Won’t Dance, Night And Day, and Sweet Sue.

Max Raabe said: “My only message is to entertain the audience during the concert and transport them out of reality.

“That is why music was written, to take the audience away from their everyday problems. And it still works today.”
