German concert hall unbans German flagmain
Following a huge fuss over his ban on a concert poster that showed a German flag, the director of the Düsseldorf Tonhalle has turned tail and permitted the poster to be hung on his hallowed walls.
Insiders tell us he had asked for the concert to be renamed, but pressure from national media and the city mayor forced a climdown in 24 hours.
Regardless of what one thinks of the poster, it is not the job of a hall manager to act as political censor. Right?
