    I'm a 90's kid and it's funny because an English teaching in Eastern Europe was really poor back then, so music was the only chance for us to learn English.

      wtf has Drake to do with anything of this? Give or take, but I wouldn't be suprised by the amounth of fans he has, that he would/could perform infront of so many people

    Pffft, nothing too special. One of my buddy's relatives played in front of 666 million kikes back in the 40's with his band, The National Socialist German Workers' Party. He said the temperature was just reich for touring the various camps. My favorite tune of theirs is still Greater Israel Project, followed by Holocaust Guilt Trip. What great songs and what disciplined musicians they were. NSDAP beats Metallica.

    This is a little misleading.  It was 500,000 but when Lars took stage within minutes that number dropped to 22,437 including band, crew and security.

    this would never happen today in russia , here autoritarism took over once again. back then people had enough of commie shit, almost a century of all kinds of slavery , no access to free world, no information about anything outside of ussr, it was so good to finally unite with the rest of the nations, thats why there were so many people on that concert. It was just the right time for big us bands to come.

      My dad remembers having a lot of metalheads in 80's in Russia. Iron Curtain didn't block any kinds of music back then. And he told me that coca cola in soviet Russia was expensive as fuck till 90's.
