Eric Clapton Rocks the Kings Place

Konigsplatz was transformed today into an open-air concert hall as Eric Clapton rocked the entire neighborhood. Hundreds of people descended to the surrounding neighborhood to listen to the concert from outside the grounds. This picture shows the scene across the street at the Konigsplatz U-bahn station. The setting was actually quite nice here and at the music school on the other side of the concert. Many people brought bottles of wine and sat anywhere they could for a make shift picnic. No doubt the event was much nicer inside the concert venue (despite the rain) between the two museums – but it was amazing how many people happened to stumble across the concert, heard Eric play, and stayed for a while.
