According to Australia's Undercover News, SYSTEM OF A DOWN went ahead with their headline performance at Festimad in Madrid, Spain on Saturday night (May 28) despite Mother Nature intervening.Hours before the performance, 60mph winds blew through the area and literally blew the canvas and metal roof right off the outdoor stage. The promoters managed to remove the roof and take it away safely and decided to cancel the remainder of the show. However, the crowd had other plans. Chants from the 30,000 strong crowd bellowed "We want SYSTEM to play...we want SYSTEM to play" over and over. Despite the winds, and the show being somewhat delayed, SYSTEM OF A DOWN took to the stage at around 3:45 a.m. and played through until 5:00 a.m. Regardless of what Mother Nature dished up, no-one left. The 30,000 fans stayed until SOAD finished their performance.
