The word iconic is over often used, but never in the context of James Last. Having sold over 100 million records over a career spanning half a century, he has had a staggering 52 hit albums making him second only to Elvis Presley in charting records.

The 85 year old composer and conductor, James Last, has now confirmed that his Spring European dates will be his last – the UK concerts marking a staggering 89th and 90th concerts at London’s Royal Albert Hall, making him the most popular German performer to have played at the iconic venue.

An era of German music history will come to an end this year, and for these shows, Last dedicates them to all his fans over the years.

James Last commented: "The concerts themselves will mark the end of this chapter in my life. The main thing is that my fans have the best concerts of their lives and we will make this our “happiest” concert yet!”

With his trademark big band sound, James Last has enchanted hundreds of millions of people around the world. Whether pop or polka, rock and roll or waltz, jazz or classical, he is a composer, musician and artist with no equal.
