    This kind of nonsense will probably be well received in Switzerland and Germany, they love cheap tricks.

  • Ricardo says:

    Cool, but not new: Keith Emerson was doing this over 40 years ago.

  • Andreas C. says:

    Keith Emerson destroyed a Rachmaninoff prelude in a live concert doing this (although he wasn’t content being just suspended and did aerial somersaults as well) already in the 70s: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uSm5IQFaTZA

    I prefer Emerson’s interpretation – when you get to this level of ridiculousness, it’s better to push it as far as you can.

  • Caravaggio says:

    Little desperate for attention?

  • Ben G. says:

    Perfect accompanist for the singer in this video. Let’s all stand on our heads to enjoy the performance:


  • Steveinsandiego says:

    Uh, to what end?

  • John Rook says:

    Sorry, but what’s the point? In any case, Keith Emerson did this back in the 1970’s.

    I have seen some daft tricks in my time , but this is not merely daft, it is utterly pointless

  • Simon Scott says:

    Well,I certainly admire his nerve.
    I get vertigo just from watching this!

  • My buddy Keith Emerson did this, among other knife wielding antics! Oh, how I miss him. But kudos to the next generation daredevils!!

  • Sue Sonata Form says:

    Oh, “Air on a G String”!!
