Quarter of a century ago, GOTTHARD set out from the Swiss canton Tessin to conquer the world with pure, straightforward rock and gigantic ballads. With 15 No.1 albums and various multi platinum awards GOTTHARD are not only the most successful Swiss band but are also a staple in the global spotlight. The hard rockers from Lugano played more than 2000 concerts on three continents and sold over three million records to date. For 25 years, GOTTHARD have been a regular in the charts and represent Swiss rock at it’s best! In 2010, Steve Lee was killed in a traffic accident in the U.S. – a forced, tragic break that lasted one and a half years. After careful consideration, GOTTHARD eventually dared the step into a new chapter with their new singer Nic Maeder. With respect, blood, sweat and tears, the exceptional singer managed to prevail against an array of top-class candidates from all over the world. In the current line-up consisting of Leo Leoni (guitar), Freddy Scherer (guitar), Marc Lynn (bass), Hena Habegger (drums), and Nic Maeder (vocals) the band’s reincarnated joy of making music. As if given a new pair of wings, GOTTHARD, who rank at no.6 of the Swiss all-time album chart history, kicked off their world tour across 22 countries.
