It was planned as the comeback of live music. But the "Give Live A Chance" event, which had already been criticized in advance, at which 13,000 people were supposed to meet in the Merkur Spiel-Arena in Düsseldorf on September 4, was canceled again and postponed to late autumn due to the rising corona numbers Rockers from The BossHoss should have performed at the event and are accordingly disappointed by the short-term cancellation on their official Instagram account.
The entire band - "with joy and without paying a fee" - and their crew would have been only too happy to "set an example for the live industry". "A sign or wake-up call to politics and society that so many jobs are linked to live events. We believe that larger concerts or events can also be implemented in accordance with protective measures and the hygiene concept."
When can the concert be made up for?
At the same time, Sascha Vollmer, Alec Völkel and Co. also emphasize "that we completely understand the background to the cancellation." Instead of despairing, they now hope "that the situation will relax as soon as possible, so that you can a new date can start another attempt to give the live concerts a chance!"
Five music acts were scheduled to perform at the 150-minute event on September 4, and comedian Michael Mittermeier was also scheduled as a special guest. Canadian Bryan Adams was invited for international flair, and Sarah Connor, Joris and Rea Garvey were also part of the line-up.
