    A concert by heavy-metal rockers AC/DC in Munich on Friday drew over 100 noise complaints by irate neighbours, police reported Sunday.


    Complaints came from as far as Unterhaching, a suburb almost 20 kilometers (12 miles) away from the stadium. Police said the neighbours complained about “overly-loud music” that violated local noise ordinances.


    The noise did not drive off Economy Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, who showed up at the concert with his wife, Stephanie, according to the daily Bild. The 37-year-old minister has admitted his love of heavy metal before and said that he’s been a fan of the Australian rockers since he was a teenager. Bild quoted Stephanie zu Guttenberg as saying that she had never been to an AC/DC show before, but was going because her husband was so excited to see the band.


    The concert at the Olympic Stadium was attended 70,000 fans. Police said despite the noise, the concert was extremely calm. Four people were arrested for trying to get into the stadium with counterfeit tickets, otherwise there were no reports of brawling or rowdiness. Five fans without tickets also climbed a crane at a nearby building site in order to get a free peek from afar into the stadium.

    Look forward to reading it, now that you've had a couple of days to think it over.

    No worries :)


    By the way - hats off to Swiss mate - they really are the best airline in Europe. I think this was the first time I've flown anywhere without something going wrong. Any chance of stealing a box of those chocolates that you hand out? ;)
