Dream a little dream with Max Raabe and the Palast Orchester direct from Berlin; luxuriate in the high style and musical glory of the 1920's and 30's with a cool contemporary twist. The international million selling German crooner comes to Eastbourne's Devonshire Park Theatre for his first UK tour.
With a unique talent for coy understatement and matchless skills as an entertainer, Max Raabe wins over audiences – whether in Berlin, Tokyo, New York, Sydney or Eastbourne!
Dashing, dapper and debonair, the timeless melodies and songs of the 20s and 30s have an inherent magic and Max Raabe combines nostalgic flair with pop-star appeal, as well as a good dose of self-irony and dry comedy. Impeccably dressed in white tie and tails, he is joined by the Palast Orchester which he formed with other students in 1986 while attending the Berlin University of the Arts.
Max Raabe & Palast Orchester come from Berlin and are worldwide the leading band of music from the era of the Weimar Republic. Hilarious songs like “Rosa, reizende Rosa” (Rosa, ravishing Rosa), romances like “Tonight Or Never” and classics like Kurt Weill´s “Mack The Knife” are brought to the stage along with standards like I Won´t Dance, Night and Day or Sweet Sue.
“My only message is to entertain the audience during the concert and transport them out of reality,” Max Raabe insists. “That is why this music was written, to take the audience away from their everyday problems. And it still works today.”
