Event Details

Nice Dutch singer ANNEKE VAN GIERSBERGEN in a brand new show in the spring in ZLÍN! Ticket sales have started!

Nice, likeable and always smiling Dutch singer ANNEKE VAN GIERSBERGEN loves music. She developed this endless love as a very young girl. She always liked to listen to pop music, sang with Barbra Streisand and Kate Bush. That changed when her older brother introduced her to heavy rock. Anthem songs, powerful vocals and a dark atmosphere instantly made her a metalhead.

ANNEKE is known for her long-standing role as the frontwoman of the melancholic metal band THE GATHERING, but even at that time she was able to assert herself and was able to successfully launch her solo career. In 2021, a Dutch talk show asked Anneke to play "Nothing Else Matters" with a string quartet to celebrate Metallica's 40th Anniversary. Music arranger Ruud Peeters made a really beautiful rendition of this metal anthem and the idea for a new collaboration was born.

This ANNEKE tour is called "Heavy Strings", which in itself indicates the style that will be played this time. The setlist will feature a wide selection of heavy music, from Iron Maiden anthems and Scorpions power ballads to Black Sabbath classics, all performed in impressive semi-classical arrangements for string quartet, piano and vocals.

This will be a musical treat for all classical metal lovers and for all ANNEKE fans, but not only that, this concert can make a very strong impression on all true classical music lovers! This will be a concert par excellence!
