Life is what happens whilst you’re making other plans…




“I’ve been promoting concerts since 1977… I’ve never experienced anything like it” – Ernst Ludwig Hartz

What happens when, despite the old saying, the show really can’t go on?  Here is a short interview with two men behind the beleaguered live music scene in Germany.  Manni Glamowski would have been behind the scenes at this year’s Rock Hard Festival (hosting Accept and Blue Oyster Cult) and Ernst Ludwig Hartz would have been introducing the likes of Robbie Williams, Kraftwerk and Lionel Richie, Deep Purple at the Kunstrasen and Hofgarten right here in Bonn.  Rockpalast asked them both for their thoughts, and fears, over the live music scene in Covid19 times.
