Premier in Hong Kong on 8./9. September
We have a new city on our concert schedule: Hong Kong! Today ticket sales start for our concerts at the Academy of Performing Arts on September 8 and 9.
We travelled to China for the first time in 2006 and played the Chinese song "Little Stream". Watch on facebook how Max Raabe sounds when singing Chinese...

We are having a summer break in order to work on new ideas. In September we will be back on the road with our present tour "Das hat mir noch gefehlt" (Oh no, not that!). For dates and tickets please click on our dates-page.
On May 30 2017 we are playing our last concert before summer at the Musikfestival Dresden - in the freshly refurbished Kulturpalast. Please find the entire program of the festival on their website www.musikfestspiele.com.

Vincent Riewe, since 1990 our friend and drummer, succumbed to his illness on 21.03.2017. His wife and three daughters are like family to us. With them we feel deep sorrow and disbelief.
Vincent´s personality and team spirit influenced our orchestra. On stage he had all eyes on him - through his way of playing and through his radiant smile.
How we will miss him!

Program 2018 and New YouTube Channel
After Max Raabe has sat together with a few pop-music-experts, there will be a new album with “Raabe-Pop”. On stage and on record. Concert-tickets for the tour 2018 can be purchased via our dates-page and on all channels from 17.3.2017. The release of the new album is planned for end of the year.
For our present show “Das hat mir noch gefehlt” (Oh no, not that!) a film was made of us racing each other - in soapboxes! How the race developed can be seen in our show and - starting today, 13.3.2017 - here on our own YouTube channel. Forget Formula 1 - this is pure excitement! The music was written by our saxophonist Rainer Fox.
New Show For Three Weeks in Berlin
"Nobody presents these songs more passionatey than Max Raabe. With him, we as listeners have a license for cultured deceleration in times of absolute acceleration" states the Morgenpost refering to our new show "Das hat mir noch gefehlt" (Oh no, not that).
From February 28 to March 19 we will be playing "Das hat mir noch gefehlt" daily apart from Mondays in Berlin´s traditional 20s theater "Admiralspalast".

Das hat mir noch gefehlt (Oh no, not that!)...
... is the title of our new show which we will be performing in all of Germany during 2017. Next to many surprises it also incorporates numbers that were chosen by our audience, for example "La Mer" or the Max Raabe classic „Kein Schwein ruft mich an“. Look forward to further Max Raabe songs as well as to originals from the 20s and 30s! Technical highlights will be provided for by our light designer Dirk Lehmann and the film director Daniel Lwowski with his capital ideas for moving pictures.
During the following weeks we will provide pictures and infos around "Das hat mir noch gefehlt" on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
A highlight of the first half of 2017 is certainly the three week engagement at Berlin´s Admiralspalast starting February 2017. Infos to all concerts can be found on our dates-page.
