The Laeiszhalle is to German concert hall culture what "Sergeant Pepper's" is to the Beatles: the orchestral feat of incomparable quality. 

The sophisticated concert hall, which opened in 1908, is one of the most important philharmonic concert halls in Europe with a capacity of over 2,000 seats and soon after it opened it was able to welcome composers such as Richard Strauss, Sergei Prokofiev, Igor Stravinsky and Paul Hindemith, who conducted their own works here. 

International stars like 12-year-old Yehudi Menuhin or the young Vladimir Horowitz have all shared its stage, as have legends like Maria Callas, Cecilia Bartoli and Jonas Kaufmann. The shipping Tycoon Carl Heinrich Laeisz donated this unique building in neo-baroque style to Hamburg. Today it is the home of the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra. As part of the Come Together Experience, the Laeiszhalle will be the place for the very special concerts, often with many actors finding enough space on the huge stage; including the 50th anniversary revue of the Blue Album and the John Lennon tribute evening by Earl Slick and his guests.
