Hey everyone! I came across this yesterday on LinkedIn which is advertising a Europe concert on Thursday 24th September. This has been put on in partnership with NetApp. Not sure what to expect but it will so great to see something from the band with concerts being cancelled at the moment. I'm hoping to get to watch it, and also hope some of you can as well.
Please Join Us! Thursday, September 24 4:00pm - 5:00pm BST / 5:00pm - 6:00pm CET
NetApp has secured the legendary rock band EUROPE for you as our customer in appreciation for our joint business. You will surely remember successful hits like “The Final Countdown”!

Aaahhhh! So that was what this mysterious post was all about on the Europe The Crew page... Sweet!! Excited to see something from the band again!
One thing is weird about this though. It seems to be today...but zero promotion? Why didn't the band post anything about this? Or maybe it will be like a suprise. Maybe all of sudden they will announce it? That they go live in like 2 hours? Let's see...

Well it appears to be for Netapp customers only, so its a private gig.. They secretly announced it to the fans through Europe The Crew page by showing the complete crew working to setup the stage. Hopefully we will get access since they will e-mail the link, but I don't have it yet. Maybe share the link here when somebody receives the link?
Thanks for the details from the Europe The Crew page, great to get a look at what might be in store, as I had no idea what to expect from the advert. The post came up fine by the way on their Facebook page, although I've now requested to join hopefully to get future updates.
I also found it advertised on Twitter (although there was no sign-up link):
Hopefully the link for the webinar/concert will come through later today. It's not unusual for links to be sent out closer to an event (e.g. hour or so before), so if you are registered I would expect the links to come through. Let's hope so!
