I got an invitation to see the Beatsteaks in Berlin at the famous open air stage Wuhlheide. They serve up the finest punk and rock & roll, made in my favourite Berlin districts of Kreuzberg and Treptow.
It’s catchy pogo dance music from my teenage disco years before the hipster era became huge. Everybody at the concert was over 30 years old. I was surprised at how old all these visitors were until I recognized: this is my generation.
There are definitely some perks for a disabled person and this company provides an established stage to concert-goers with a handicap. Here is what we experienced “an der Wuhlheide”
- express entry
- express security check (“Yes. I just carry my necessary medical devices, no explosives this time.”)
- premium place to stay for concert with great view and fast access to beer
- seats reserved for my company
- fast track to skip the queue for the toilet, useful for my assistant too
- our own security team
