Kelly Family had no problem selling twice more than 30.000 tickets in very small time.

Actually she is not very popular here. Most comments about her concert are pretty much the same:
"I wouldn't go to see this jumping old worn witch even if you pay me."

I guess so.

Only rockers can still perform reasonably at a higher age... Madonna indeed, had her best time in the 80's and 90's, not now.

Metallica easily and quickly sold over 30.000 tickets in Ljubljana (it was 10 years ago, though). They would sell much more, but stadium wasn't big enough.

Rumours say that only 7000 ticket were sold. Even more drastic was the story with Michael Jackson concert: they sold only 3500 tickets.

Concerts of these "top" artists are way too expensive anyway.

I was at Metallica concert in Vienna this May. Ticket were from 40-80 - seated. They still know how to play excellent live music - without all the fancy stage things (almost all).

I think Madonna is only overpriced hype and people here realised this.

Man, how disappointing is that? Paying 100-or so bucks to listen to a damn tape.

Good artists don't need to playback, or know when to stop. I went to Roger Waters in 2007, that was just amazing, and that guy is like 60 years old.

There are problems with Madonna's concert in Budapest as well. First they wanted to held it in Kincsem Park, a horse racing track. Then horse owners began protesting that the concert would disturb the horses... Then it was moved to Puskás Ferenc Stadium, but there the Football Association protested that the fans at the concert would ruin the grass, making it unable for football matches... As it seems now, the concert will be held at the horse track after all

Madonna's concert in Tallinn happened with no problems. Both Valdis were happy.

Do you have any idea how to convert tape from 10-years old video camera to some kind... format on computer ?

I have some valuable footage there from Italian motorways A.D 2001

You need a tv tuner card for the PC. You hook it to the camera (the camera should have some kind of S-Video or Scart interface) and then you can capture the footage.

Of course the more convenient way is to pay someone to do it for you I guess that some local camera-man who usually deals with weddings and that kind of stuff would digitalise the tape for little money.

I use Google Maps edition for map of european motorways, 300 times easier than looking for .bmp hi res map or something. That's just a start. These little dots are interchanges and junction, don't worry about errors, I have only started and will continue

Ahem ... you mean Central Europe, Mateusz.

Please let us continue educating our West European (and other) colleagues that we actually live in Central Europe.

Eastern Europe is ... in the east of Europe and the political dinosaur called Eastern Bloc became extinct about 20 years ago.

Yeah true. I refer to Eastern Europe when I'm talking about anything east of Poland. Poland, Hungary, Slovakia etc. are Central Europe to me.

The center of Europe is actually somewhere in Lithuania or Latvia.
