Big disappointment among his many fans: Herbert Grönemeyer (66) canceled his anniversary tour “20 Years of Man” because of a corona infection. Eight performances were planned, as the artist management DBE announced on Wednesday. The start should take place on Thursday in Hanover.
“Unfortunately, the virus has unfortunately also infected staff, band members and Herbert,” it said. The performances in Hanover, Gelsenkirchen, Berlin, Leipzig, Hamburg and Munich will be canceled without replacement. The next Grönemyer tour is planned for May 2023 in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
After more than two years of “strictest isolation and endurance tests during rehearsals”, this was “extremely bitter and devastating”. Herbert Grönemeyer and the others are going “according to the situation, there is a mixture of sadness, anger and virus”.
