In 2009, a 39-year-old Greek woman went out to enjoy a concert by Notis Sfakianakis in Melbourne. As she says, since then, her life has been a nightmare. She claims that she slipped on flowers thrown by fans of the Greek singer and that she was seriously injured. Now, she is asking for compensation for medical expenses and for the pain and shock she has undertaken. “A lot of people were stepping on the carnations, so the floor was slippery and dangerous. My customer fell down, and broke her ankle. It is an injury that she’ll have for the rest of her life”, her lawyer said. Mrs. Argiro Mihelakis sued those responsible for Melbourne and Olympic Parks Trust, which manages Hense Arena Stadium, where the concert took place, and the organizing company Juggernaut Entertainment. The Greek woman says that everyone is responsible for her injury, because they permitted flowers and as a result, she was in danger. Theo Kanatas of Juggernaut Entertainment mentioned that people watching Greek concerts used to throw plates and now they throw flowers to express their admiration for Greek artists. It has been a tradition for years. “We support that we are not guilty”, he underlined. According to information, Melbourne and Olympic Parks Trust is considering to prohibit the drop of flowers in future concerts of Greek artists.
