VIDEO OF THE WEEK: EUROPE – ‘THE FINAL COUNTDOWN’

February 17, 2020

Contemporary political implications aside, this was one of the biggest hits of the 1980s, topping the charts in 13 countries all across the EU.

Directed by Nick Morris, who would go on to shoot promo videos for the likes of Alison Moyet, Terence Trent D’Arby, as well as AC/DC’s celebrated ‘Stiff Upper Lip Live’ documentary.

The video is a composite of two live gigs performed by Europe at at Solnahallen in Solna, Sweden on 26 and 27 May 1986, as well as some soundcheck footage.

And you know you’re not going to keep still when that keyboard riff starts…
