“It feels so good to be back in Sydney tonight. Oh, yes. What can I say? It feels really good to be on this stage here tonight. First, I wanna say, sorry for 2018. And sorry for last [week’s postponement]. What a mess. Kidney stones, they really knocked me out in Melbourne, and I feel so good to be back on my feet tonight.”

The show was rescheduled and Klaus Meine performed 15 songs.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
