What the hell is Rockpalast ? It is a german rock music tv show (and probably the greatest rock tv show in the world!) which broadcasts live !
Taped Rockpalast shows are known all over the world. Bands like GRATEFUL DEAD, LITTLE FEAT, ROGER McGUINN, LINDA RONSTADT, JOAN BAEZ, BLACK UHURU, etc. have played there. The Archive has been revised further and updated. Info, data, setlists, disks-records-videos, Internet Links of the bands that played at Rockpalast Rocknights and Open Airs
from 1977 to 1986, Rocklife 1990-1995 and Rockpalast 1995-1996. The picture archive also includes some new shows up to the present day.

Well, Jo Ann, I grew up with Rockpalast. I spent many nights in front of the TV/Radio and listened and recorded the shows. Rockpalast isn`t as good as it was in the 70s and 80s anymore. But this is only because I don`t like the modern bands that much. The most impressive part was: no commercials between the songs. The shows have been b`casted without any interruption of whatsoever. ... I really miss the good old days. ...
