An expensive cover version

Metallica played the carnival hit "Viva Colonia" by De Höhner at their concert in Cologne (Germany) on June 13th. But that will become expensive now.

As Bild reported, the German collecting society GEMA collects a fee of 7,000 EUR for it. These would be calculated from the income from the Metallica concert. It can be assumed that 50,000 tickets were sold for an average price of 100 EUR.

German band De Höhner is proud according to the Bild report that such a well-known US-American band is singing their song and now wants to make a Cologne version of "Nothing Else Matters": "Alles andere zählt nit".
