Sebastian "Basi" Roeder got the opportunity to work as the FOH-soundengineer for this year´s ROCK MEETS CLASSIC tour with 16 shows in the big venues of germany and switzerland.
Not always an easy task to mix 80 inputs simultaneously with the natural conflict of a loud rock band sharing the stage with an symphony orchestra and the shows taking place in venues not always exactly built for this kind of entertainment.
Supported by the Bohemian Symphony Orchestra Prague and the Mat Sinner Band the following artists performed their biggest hits:
Pete Lincoln and Andy Scott from THE SWEET
Steve Walsh from KANSAS
Ricky Warwick and Scott Gorham from THIN LIZZY
Dan McCafferty from NAZARETH
Midge Ure from ULTRAVOX
Joey Tempest from EUROPE
