This Band Had To Cancel Some Shows, So They Gave Their Fans A Tabletop Concert Instead
November 4, 2013

It's never fun when a band has to cancel shows, either for the performers or the fans. But German hip-hop group Rakede found a way to make it up to their audience when they had to cancel a series of performances in Weinheim, Dresden and Munich.

Their equipment was delayed, meaning they couldn't perform on-stage. But this video, which they sent out to their fans as a consolation, proves that they don't need too much equipment to put on a show.

Using some beer bottles, a table and a single electrical cable, they perform one of their tracks as a "Table Concert," or "Tischkonzert" — a spirited show, with no tickets required.
