A scene they described as the size of a “plate for mammography gnats” in comparison to that of “decent-sized” which had the right Blink-182, and Korn, to name a few.
In addition, the sexagenarian rockers, which completes 40 years now the loop with their career tour “Forty And Fuck It”, claim to have suggested to the organizers to play for an hour, a request that was rejected. It’s finally 45 minutes that were allocated to them, as was stated in the contract.
