Descripción

Miles de berlineses abarrotaron hoy el escenario levantado ante la Puerta de Brandenburgo, en ocasión del concierto de la banda irlandesa U2, antesala de las conmemoraciones que tendrán lugar en ese mismo lugar el próximo lunes, vigésimo aniversario de la caída del Muro de Berlín.

Bono saludó a los concentrados ante el emblemático monumento de la capital alemana con un: «Berlín, eres maravilloso», a lo cual siguió la primera de las piezas del concierto, «One», que completó otras seis canciones durante una media hora.

La actuación de U2 estaba enmarcada en la gala de los premios MTV Europe Music Awards 2009, que se entregarán esta noche en Berlín, en el pabellón 02 World Arena, en el antiguo sector oriental de la capital.

Para el concierto de U2 se habían distribuido en internet 10.000 entradas gratis, que se agotaron a las tres horas de salir a la red.

Description

A U2 show marking the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall ran into controversy after organisers built a wall around the venue.

A two metre barrier was erected around the Brandenburg gate to keep out people without tickets for the show.

“It’s a shame that a barrier has been set up. It’s stopping many Berliners from hearing the concert,” local politician Frank Henkel told the BBC.

The U2 show was part of the MTV Europe Music Awards.

Ten thousand tickets were given away free online and snapped up within hours.

Police in the city said they were expecting as many as 100,000 people to descend on the square in front of the Brandenburg Gate to try and catch a glimpse of U2.

Mr Henkel, Christian Democrat floor leader in the Berlin city-state parliament, said: “It would have been so much better if as many Berliners as possible could have taken part.

“We don’t know who’s responsible for this, whether it’s U2 or MTV.

He continued: “10,000 people is a lot, but U2 could have had an even bigger audience enjoying their music at this wonderful location.”

U2 manager Paul McGuinness said Berliners thought it was “pretty ironic” that an event to mark the falling of the wall has resulted in another one being constructed.

Fans, too, were displeased.

“It’s completely ridiculous that they are blocking the view,” said Louis-Pierre Boily, a Canadian fan who travelled to Berlin despite failing to secure tickets for the show.

“I thought it’s a free show, but MTV probably wants people to watch it on TV to get their ratings up.”
