Last night, Belgium's 1991 Eurovision Song Contest representatives Clouseau received death threats right before taking stage for a concert in the Flemish village of Wetteren. Newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws reported that today.
Marc Gybels, the mayor of Wetteren, received a letter with a bullet in which his family and the band Clouseau were threatened to death. Nevertheless he allowed the Clouseau concert to take place. 2000 fans and 40 policemen were present.
Until October 2005 Clouseau will be touring Flanders with Tour 2005, promoting their latest album Vanbinnen of which more than 60.000 copies have been sold so far. Good for a double platinum status.
Clouseau were the runner-up of Eurosong 1989 in Flanders and were internally selected to represent Belgium at the 1991 Eurovision Song Contest. With Geef het op they finished 16th in Rome.
