Herbert Grönemeyer live in front of Karlsruhe Castle
Overture to the SCHLOSSLICHTSPIELE Karlsruhe 2024
As an actor he became known nationwide with the epochal masterpiece "Das Boot", his musical breakthrough came in 1984 with "4630 Bochum". Today, Herbert Grönemeyer, whose latest studio album "Das ist los" was released in March, is considered probably the most successful contemporary German musician, having sold more than 19 million records. For the overture of this year's SCHLOSSLICHTSPIELE Karlsruhe, he comes to Karlsruhe for a unique concert - open-air on the Schlossplatz with projection onto the 170-meter-wide castle façade and a setlist put together especially for the Karlsruhe evening.
On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the German Basic Law, the SCHLOSSLICHTSPIELE Karlsruhe, which will light up Karlsruhe Castle from August 15 to September 15, 2024, will focus on the topics of law and democracy. Especially in fragile times like these, when rights, democracy, peace and values are under attack from many sides, attitude and commitment are more important than ever. Herbert Grönemeyer is not only musically one of the most outstanding German artists, but has also been socially and politically committed for decades, especially for this country and its democracy. The unique concert for the overture of the SCHLOSSLICHTSPIELE Karlsruhe with projection onto the 170 meter wide castle facade will become part of Karlsruhe's city and music history as a musical and visual highlight.
