Our friend, Italian promoter Claudio Trotter, has been acquitted on charges of breach of the peace arising out of a Bruce Springsteen concert that overran by 22 minutes. The case was brought by a residents association following the concert at Milan’s San Siro Stadium in 2008. Claudio faced a jail sentence if convicted. He told Audience magazine that the fact that the City authorities entertained the charges means that he will not use the Stadium again, pointing out the economic loss this would cause to the stadium and the city.
