Live 8 Germany - Berlin, Siegess�ule


 

Originally slated to be held at the Brandenburg Gate, the German Live 8 concert was actually held at the Siegess�ule.

The Siegess�ule is located 1.3 miles from the Brandenburg Gate. The word Siegess�ule is translated to mean Victory Column. It was originally designed by Heinrich Strack after 1864 to commemorate the victory of Prussia in the Danish-Prussian war. Quite a fitting place for the German Live 8 concert. Standing atop this wonderful column is a bronze figure of Victoria, the Roman mythological goddess of victory.


An estimated 100,000 concert fans packed the Siegess�ule Boulevard to watch the Live 8 Berlin concert. The screaming fans bounced below the Victory Column which stands where the Berlin Wall once stood. They clapped and danced to sounds of A-Ha. Audioslave, Bap, Brian Wilson, Chris De Burgh, Die Toten Hosen, Herbert Groenemeyer, Joana Zimmer, Juan Diego Florez, Juli, Katherine Jenkins, Reamonn, Renee Olstead, Roxy Music, Sasha, Silbermond, Soehne Mannheims, and Wir Sind Helden. One of the Live 8 Berlin�s highlights was Green Day; who covered such tracks as American Idiot and We Are the Champions.  The six-hour Live 8 Berlin concert was televised to the world and is soon to be available here on the Live 8 Berlin DVD. Highlights including Green Day are available on the official Live 8 4 DVD set.
