Rock Am Ring Evacuated Over Terror Threat

In another case of “has the world gone batsh*t crazy?” the Rock Am Ring music festival in Germany has been evacuated by police over a “concrete terorrist threat.”

Ninety-thousand people were packed into the site for the first night of the three-day festival when police ordered the evacuation so they could conduct an investigation as a precautionary measure.

Aussie rockers The Living End had their first show of their European tour canned as a result. They were due to play the festival Friday night.
