Auditorium Hamm 2021 - 2022

Exhilarated and Exhausted

 Be there as Freddie Mercury prepares for the Queen performance, or sit together with rock greats such as Led Zeppelin or Mötley Crüe. Neal Preston’s music photographs make it possible. From December 2, 2023, Neals Preston’s paintings could be admired in the Auditorium Hamm in large format. The exhibition was opened with an informative evening event. Until the end of January 2022, the Preston works hung in the Auditorium Hamm.


In the 50 years of his career as a photographer, Neal Preston has had pretty much all rock icons since the sixties in front of his lens: Led Zeppelin, The Who, Fleetwood Mac, Bruce Springsteen, Queen… The list goes on and on. His photographs are used for TV shows, films or booklets or can be found on numerous magazines, newspapers and books – and from 2 December they also hung in the Auditorium Hamm.

The owner of the paintings is the Lightpower Collection from Paderborn, whose founder Ralph-Jörg Wezorke was a guest at the Auditorium Hamm on December 2nd to open the exhibition. At the evening event there were all kinds of facts and interesting facts about “In the Eye of the Rock’n’Roll Hurricane”.

Throughout December 2021 and January 2022, visitors had the opportunity to see 36 concert photographs free of charge: A relaxed get-together of Mötley Crüe before the next concert or be there “live” as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury puts on kohl before the performance. It could at least feel like live, because the close-ups gave the scenes a liveliness that drew the viewer into the middle of the action.

The Lightpower Collection, to which the works on display belong, has been on tour for almost 10 years now with the exhibition “In the Eye of the Rock’n’Roll Hurricane”. All proceeds from sales of signed fine art prints benefit charitable foundations within the event industry.
