They were quickly hailed as the “biggest new rock act in the world” by Rolling Stone, and are the only band in history to see their first three full-length studio albums enter the Billboard 200 at No. 1.
6. Visit children's music festival at Philharmonie
The Philharmonie's education department has created a weekend full of music and activities around the theme of the universe. An interstellar classic will be performed by a full symphony orchestra in the Grand Auditorium. Young and older visitors alike can also build sonic crafts in the Foyer. Discover the planets, the moon and the stars, right in the middle of Luxembourg.
