SOLD OUT: Jaki Liebezeit: A Tribute

No other rock/pop drummer has been as influential internationally as Jaki Liebezeit who died in January 2017. One of the reasons being that CAN, the band with whom the Cologne based drummer achieved worldwide fame, did not define itself as a rock band. CAN made music based on extensive collective improvisations and clear, monotonous beats. Liebezeit had a lifelong passion for exploring and renewing his drumming style and sound, and he worked with numerous musicians, bands and producers. The most notable being Brian Eno, Gianna Nannini, Eurhythmics, Depeche Mode and Burnt Friedmann.

On January 22nd 2018, the first anniversary since Jaki Liebezeit's death,  some of his fellow musicians will pay tribute to him at the Cologne Philharmonic. Just as Jaki would have preferred, a clear dramatic thread will set the tone for the evening. They will celebrate and commemorate this outstanding musician whom the Rolling Stone magazine proclaimed to be “one of the most influential drummers ever”.
