Below you find a list of concerts that I consider attending (or have attended); this is merely for information (e.g., what reviews you might see in my blog) — the occurrence of an event does not imply endorsement or promotion (nor do I promise reviewing each and every one of these concerts). All concerts are in Switzerland, unless noted otherwise.
