[NEWS] Bruce Springsteen Awarded Medal of Freedom By President Barack Obama

雖然全世界仍在談論 Donald Trump 當選總統,但現任總統Barack Obama 昨晚又一令人讚賞的舉動 —— 在一個政府頒奬禮上,Obama決定把總統自由勳章(即國家的最高民事榮譽)頒給的 Bruce Springsteen。眾所周知,Bruce 在美國搖滾史上有重大影響,更被稱為 The Boss,其歌曲 Born In The USA更在電影或大型時節被廣泛使用。Obama頒獎禮上介紹:「幾十年來 Bruce Springsteen 帶給我們走上美國生活中充滿野心、不公、樂趣、痛苦、單純榮耀與破碎心靈的之間的旅程。」

Yesterday President Barack Obama presented the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the country’s highest civil honor to individuals, to Bruce Springsteen — “For decades, Bruce Springsteen has brought us all along on a journey consumed with the bargains between ambition and injustice, pleasure and pain, the simple glories and scattered heartbreak of everyday life in America.”

…In a hot summer night, brainchild Nergal is bringing his resounding performance to Hong Kong after his tough battle with leukemia. The ghost-faced team enter the stage slowly, step by step as if they are some kind of possessed spirits arising from the unknown. Nergal raises the fire torches above his head with cross arms which puts everyone in silence like a scared ritual. The light turns down again and now, the Satan-worshipping night officially begins…
