You Started Laughing (Live At Pavillon de Paris) ..
Paris was recorded on Supertramp's Breakfast in America tour in Paris, France, with most of the tracks taken from a 29 November 1979 show at the Pavillon de Paris, a venue which was once a slaughterhouse..The Pavillon de Paris was a large concert space in Paris, France, located near the Porte de Pantin Métro stop, on the northern edge of the city.. With a seated capacity of approximately 10,000 spectators, the Pavillon was the city's largest indoor music arena throughout its brief operating history from September 1975 until September 1980...

September 5 – The St. Gotthard Tunnel opens in Switzerland as the world's longest highway tunnel at 10.14 miles (16.32 km), stretching from Göschenen to Airolo...

Inside the Gotthard Road Tunnel..

In response to the automobile boom in Switzerland and other things, the Swiss government gave approval in July 1969 for the construction of the 16-kilometre Gotthard Road tunnel.. The tunnel would be longer than any existing road tunnel, and would provide a year-round road link between central Switzerland and Milan to be used in place of the Gotthard Pass..On Friday 24 October 2001 a collision of two trucks created a fire in the tunnel, killing 11 and injuring many more, the smoke and gases produced by the fires being the main cause of death..The Gotthard Tunnel forms part of the A2 motorway in Switzerland, running south from Basel through the tunnel down to Chiasso on the border with Italy..The Gotthard Base Tunnel (GBT) is a railway tunnel through the Alps in Switzerland expected to open on 2 June 2016...'s crazy.. The town is jammed.. I don't know, is the Pope in town, or some other showbusiness figure?..I think you're being rather harsh on them, don't you, Mrs. Mothershead?..
