According to the headlines, singer Udo Lindenberg waited 32 years for tonight. In 1983 he wrote Sonderzug Nach Pankow about taking a (special) train to Pankow, then in East Berlin. Evidently it was a reaction to not being allowed to play a concert in the East. Tonight, Udo Lindenberg’s dream came true: he got to ride his special train to Pankow. And special it was. So drunk he could hardly stand, he gave an interview with cigar in hand and waded through a crowd of fans, press and police to get on his way to his concert at the Ball Sall. The photos show just how special it was.
