*FACTS FROM THE ROAD

15.08.1988 - another milestone in the bands long history - the band played 14 consecutive shows at the Olympic-hall of Moscow, Russia. The shows were a big success in a land which was governed by communismus at the time. All 14 shows were a complete sell-out with 17,500 people every night.
