Manfred Mann’s Earth Band
Who doesn’t know them? Hits like "Blinded by the Light," "Davy's on the Road Again," "Father of Day, Father of Night," "Mighty Quinn," and "I Came for You" have classic status. More than 40 years ago, Manfred Mann founded his legendary Earth Band, with whom he was regularly in the charts in the 70s and early 80s and played to sold-out halls throughout Europe.
The Earth Band became famous back then thanks to their sensational live concerts. One of the founding members in 1971 was Mick Rogers, who still plays in the band. The group, which had been dissolved in 1988, was re-established by Mann in 1992. At first, apart from Mann, only Rogers (guitar, vocals), Noel McCalla (vocals), Mick Rogers (guitar, vocals), Steve Kinch (bass), and ex-Jethro Tull drummer Clive Bunker were part of the party, but later Chris Thompson joined for a short time, until 1998. Since 2011, the band has been on tour with a new voice, Robert Hart. They are now better and rockier than ever!
The exceptional artist Manfred Mann will be coming to Solothurn with his Earth Band for the third time on this Sunday. Note that there is no opening act; Manfred Mann's Earth Band will start promptly at 19:00 and there is standing room only at this concert.
Tickets are CHF 54.90 in advance or CHF 58 at the door, spaces permitting.
