2017 Concert Summer at the Mercedes-Benz Museum: Tickets still available for Rea Garvey and Teesy & Vona
A good week to go, then the first Mercedes-Benz Museum Concert Summer starts: from 28 June to 2 July 2017 stars from pop and hip-hop will be appearing on two different stages. Concert tickets are still available for Rea Garvey (1 July) and Teesy & Vona (30 June). The other concerts with Freundeskreis (28 and 29 June) and Lina (2 July) are already sold out. On Sunday 2 July 2017 there is also a big day for children and families, with numerous free attractions for young visitors to the museum. Entry to the museum is free on 2 July.
Stuttgart. The Irish singer Rea Garvey is well known for his gentle and powerful hits. He is appearing on Saturday, 1 July 2017 on the big new festival stage and will be generating goose pimples aplenty against the backdrop of the Mercedes-Benz Museum. The concert evening will be opened by Rea´s fellow countryman Ryan Sheridan, who is accompanying him on tour this summer. There are still tickets for this concert at http://www.konzertsommer.com/ and at all booking offices. This also applies to the appearance by Teesy & Vona: on 30 June 2017 the two artists will be appearing together at 7.30 p.m. on the open-air stage, where they will thrill the audience with their mix of R&B and pop.
"The Concert Summer will be the highlight of our series of Cars and Culture events this year. Three sold-out concerts - I am delighted that the new festival format is being received so well", commented the Head of the Museum, Alexandra Süß. "My two daughters think it´s great that Lina is coming to the museum. They can hardly wait for the concert on 2 July."
The Mercedes-Benz Museum launched the Concert Summer at the end of 2016 together with the concert promoter Chimperator Live. Matthias Mettmann, Director of Chimperator Live, said: "Following over ten months of intensive planning and preparation I´m delighted that it all starts soon. The good line-up and the resonance from the public are already promising a great first Concert Summer at the Mercedes-Benz Museum."
In 2017 the Mercedes-Benz Museum is bringing together the excitement of the cultural and automotive worlds at some very different music events with the motto Cars & Culture. The Concert Summer with its five concerts will above all delight fans of hip-hop and pop. The new open-air festival stage at the museum with a capacity of 7200 guests is being kicked off by the reunited legendary Stuttgart hip-hop group Freundeskreis; both concerts (28 and 29 June 2017) were sold out within a short space of time. It´s no wonder, as the legendary group is making its first appearance in ten years – that alone was reason enough for the fans to celebrate. There are no more tickets available for the appearance by Lina (2 July 2017) either as part of the big day for children and families.
It´s still worth visiting on Sunday, 2 July 2017, even though the concert is sold out: the Mercedes-Benz Museum is granting free entry to its exhibition all day long. It is also offering further attractions full of fun and games and excitement: a driving school for children, for instance, with a 400-metre road and theoretical and practical lessons. Stylish Mercedes-Benz cabriolets will be available for the practical driving exercises. Every hour there will also be guided tours for children from 9.30 a.m. to 3.30 p.m. in different age groups (4 to 5 years, 6 to 8 years and 9 to 12 years). The popular Genius Campus Workshops will be dealing with the topic of the fascination of design.
The classic meet Cars & Coffee for all brands will round off the programme on 2 July 2017. The Sunday event takes place until 10 September 2017 on a total of twelve dates. This is where the area on the Mercedes-Benz Museum Hill is usually adorned with more than 100 vehicles. They do not just include classic cars and young classics from Mercedes-Benz, but also cars of other brands. Meeting up to chat over a cup of coffee and admire the assembled vehicles: this too is lived automotive culture at the Mercedes-Benz Museum.
A note on 1 and 2 July 2017: on this day trains will not be able to serve the Neckarpark stop. Anyone not wishing to drive to the museum in their own car can arrive in style by taking a historic Mercedes-Benz O 3500 bus, built in 1950, from the Schlossplatz square. The bus will be providing a shuttle service between 11.00 a.m. and 7 p.m.. Alternatively there are buses to replace the train service between the Bad Cannstatt and Esslingen stations plus the regular 56 bus route and the U 11 tram (only on 1 July).
