I'll never forget my first rock concert I've ever been! It was the 2nd of July 1986 and QUEEN were on their 'A kind of magic'-Tour in Europe!! I was electrified by the thought this happening would take place without me - No Way!
I neeed a ticket, better two- oh my god, I was so desperate getting this f...tickets! But then, after trying several possibilities, In the last minute - lucky guy I was, I was drafted in a radio show to win TWO! tickets for their second (and last) Switzerland concert in Zurich Hallenstadion! It shall be their last appearance in Switzerland as the origin complete band ! Oh Freddy, I miss you at least once a week the last 21 years!
I lived in Berne 1986 and I was in my second apprenticeship year as a chocolat and pastry cook (pÃ¢tissier confiseur), so we needed to be on duty at six in the morning in the bakery??? It came as it had to come - we missed the last train from Zurich to Berne after Freddy had given several additional songs in a fabulous concert!
My working colleague and I held our thumbs up on the highway begin and, after three!! minutes (at one o'clock in the night - nowadays, nobody would stop for two young men) a man in his middle age stopped, and gave us a ride back home and just in time!
