I was kind of expecting a few more people...

Edmonton this this in 2003 and drew 55,000



Still cool though. Something that's done not nearly enough.

Thats awesome. Had they built a bunch of temporary bleachers to hold more people it would have blocked out the buildings and lost it's appeal.

Are you serious?

That game was done in a football stadium, not an urban city square.

I didn't say I was expecting 55K...there's barely 1000 people there.

Deez, I think if the point ever were to best 55K, they would have done it on Luzhniki soccer arena that fits 100K or so.
