Charles was then awarded bronze and the American “burani” were unrivaledly golden. Their velehit YMCA was already moving around the world. Gott fully understood their primacy. “When I return home, I will go to Pragokoncert and try to get you to Prague,” he told Willis.
“Prague is beautiful and we also have the best beer in the world and our people will go crazy at your concert,” added Slavík.
At Pragokoncert, which was an agency that had a monopoly on the import of foreign singers to what was then Czechoslovakia under the Communists, but it burned down. “No one wanted to undermine authority with anti-socialist elements,” said a witness to Lightning.

Beer, goulash and shrimp
Village People spent three days in Prague, staying at the Ambassador Hotel on Wenceslas Square. And there they had to prove Gott right. “They really enjoyed Pilsen – except for Victor, who doesn’t drink! And they also basked sirloin, goulash and licked behind their ears. “ Michal David said happily to Blesk.
He invited Victor Willis to his house before the first concert and they prepared the blood for garlic himself. Gott would certainly wish that on his friend. He would be glad he had accomplished something he hadn’t.
