Compensation for loud rock music

The English rock group, Oasis, sometimes play extremely loud music at live concerts. Recently, the organisers of a concert in Germany paid compensation to some of the concert-goers, reports the Swedish magazine Auris. After the concert, three members of the audience suffered such earaches that they had to go to hospital. They later took out a summons against the organisers of the concert, who agreed to pay compensation to the three sound-struck rock fans. As a side note, one of Oasis' more memorable songs is called Supersonic. The rock group AC/DC also played a dangerous game with the hearing ability of their audience at a concert held in Norway in the summer of 2001. Measuring equipment at the concert was put to the test. Noise levels as high as 121 dB were recorded.
