    A fine band. Sad to hear this.

  2. John Borstlap says:

    ‘Highway to hell’. Invitation? Self-description? Warning against the competition? Recollection of yesterday night? I think it must be defining cultural identity.

    1. Ellingtonia says:

      Tell me Mr Borstlap when did a performance of any of your music draw a similar size crowd?

      1. Sanity says:

        Don’t be silly. You can’t get that many people in the food court of a shopping mall.

  3. Sue says:

    Very fashionable title for a band, if you think about it. I was absolutely staggered by the size of that audience!! That’s an audience of consequence.

    1. Jean says:

      Yup, Mozart never had such.

      1. Maria says:

        No, but people are still listening to Mozart.

        1. Rgiarola says:

          Indeed. Even after 2 centuries. However Mozart had never make 100 thousand people shouting his songs at the same time in a arena, during 40 years. That’s too much guts & balls for our little Wolf.

          I think Beethoven would do something similar.

    For those about to Rock! We salute you. R.I.P
