March 2015 - Munich, Germany

Comments: Precise details unknown. Captain Sensible wrote on his Facebook page on 31 March - 'I'm just back from Munich and La BrassBanda's manager Wolfgang 'Knacki' Huber's 50th birthday party. You gotta mark life's milestone events in style... embrace the fact that you're now officially an old bastard and just go for it. So with this in mind Knacki invited his mates Die Toten Hosen, La BrassBanda and my good self to a big bash where all sorts of noisy jamming went on till the early hours ... um... when we were not wining and dining ourselves silly that is. It all got a bit squiffy and what with the party and the various biergartens one visited (not to mention the famous Hofbräuhaus!) I am definitely taking it easy for a couple of days!'.
