Destruction julkaisi aftermovien Sveitsin keikastaan

Kirjoittanut Janne Ollikainen - 16.7.2020

Saksalainen thrash metal -yhtye Destruction esiintyi 4. heinäkuuta Prattelnissa, Sveitsissä. Koronan takia keikalla toki vallitsi vielä rajoitteita yleisömäärän suhteen, sillä 1600 henkeä vetävään keikkapaikkaan oli päästetty vain 300 katsojaa. Yhtye soitti Prattelnin Z7-konserttisalissa kaksi loppuunmyytyä keikkaa. Keikkojen jälkimainingeissa yhtye on julkaissut dokumentin, josta pääsee näkemään tunnelmia tapahtuman ympärillä. Yhtyeen keulamies Schmier kertoo:

“I am very glad that our film-team could capture those moments, the first shows after the loosening of the rules in Switzerland for concerts were for sure a special moment for all of us.

The fans did a very good job and the social distancing worked pretty well. For sure much better than in the supermarket or on public transport these days. We all felt safe & sound and sure you can not completely avoid contact but you can use your common sense.

The precautions and government rules have been implemented well and that was important for everybody involved! It will still be very challenging to bring concerts back into our lives. If masks will be a part of that future or other precautions, will the next weeks show. It is important to take the new challenges and try – instead of doing nothing and just accepting the situation of no shows!

DESTRUCTION will continue this path and play a social distancing Open Air close to Berlin in August. A concept that works for a while in Germany and now this now the first METAL show in that format. Thanks for all the support & stay healthy and aware!”
