That means control, as in the people who check to see if you bought your subway ticket for the U2 line in Berlin. Which apparently these two guys did not do.
Nor did they have a Genehmigung (license) to make Straßenmusik (music on the street – or under it), either.
That’s the problem with this country, people. Nobody respects the rule of law.
The musicians took a special train Wednesday from the Olympic Stadium, near the western end of the U2 line, to the Deutsche Oper stop. Local radio station Radioeins, which gave out tickets for the ride, said about 120 people joined them on the train.
