Is he singing a patriotic song or anthem? a politically charged song? Is he furious because of some different person/people? Is this a large crowd? 10? 50? 200? more? Is this happening outdoors? He is a professional singer?

Has he not been back to his hometown in a long while? Is this based on a historical event?

Is the crowd made up of HAMs? HAFs? Mixed? Is it an army? A group of townspeople? Specific kinds of people?

Do they care that he's furious? Are they his enemies, so to speak? Would they rather he were happy?

So is he singing as part of a chorus or choir? Or just a group of people who all know the tune and lyrics to a certain song or songs?
Is this a kind of commemorative song? Something like an alma mater, or a song associated with a school, fraternity, college organization, etc?
Does he not really want to sing the song? But does it because "everybody else is singing it"?
Is he singing in order to demonstrate unity with other people in this group?
Does he think it is a ridiculous thing to have to do?

Did Bruno come to this location just to sing the song? Or to do other things as well? To see certain people? Was he required to be present?
Was he furious because he...did not want to make the trip to his hometown? Did not want to sing that certain song? Preferred to sing another song? Did not want to sing at all? Or is his being furious not directly related to the song?
Is it relevant to know how many people were gathered at the place where Bruno and others sang?
Had Bruno sung this same song at this same place before? Had anyone else?
Was everyone at this place singing along with Bruno? Or were some not singing, just listening?

Is a sports team relevant? Yes If so, is it relevant how the team is doing? Yes
Who the team is meeting? Yes
Is he a supporter? Noish. Yope. Explore.

RECAP:
The gathering is for a sports event.
Bruno is not a professional singer, nor is he a good singer. He is singing in a chorus. Something else he is doing is relevant.
His being furious is yopishly related to the song. The song is a locally known song associated with the hometown and a Club.

Is he less of a supporter than he appears to be? Is the team doing well? Badly? Does he support the opposing team? Do people insinuate that he does? Did he return to his hometown from the town of the opposing team? Does he know anyone in the opposing team? Anyone supporting it? Is his singing being recorded? Broadcast?

Is he furious because he has to sing a song supporting the team playing against his own team? Is he okay with singing it, but doesn't want certain people to know that he does? Is someone deliberately going against a wish of his? Or accidentally?

Did he lose a bet? That if his team lost to the team he used to play for he would have to sing a song? Like a victory song/fight song of the home team which he used to play for?

So he's compelled or obligated to sing? Is this because he has promised someone that he would do so? Because people are watching him?
Has something relevant happened during the course of the game/match that prompts people to start singing?
Is the exact sport relevant? The exact countries?
I remember seeing a video of a European rugby team, and at some point the crowd sang "Swing Low Sweet Chariot" (UB40 was the group who did the video and song). Is it something like this?

Is the home team scoring the only reason why the crowd is very happy? Is it the only reason why Bruno is furious?
Was Bruno the former coach of the home team? Does he sing to show respect to the opponent? to mock the local fans? to show he is still a fan of his home town team?

So when the home team scores, a song that has been recorded is played over a speaker system in the arena? And Bruno's voice can be heard on the recording? Is the song only played as an audio track or video as well? Because then it would be possible for Bruno to be seen and heard celebrating the home team's score but he doesn't play for that team anymore.

Actually, we are nearly done. Just find outwhy they have a song with Bruno singing when they score.

I'm not sure what else to ask - it seems that Bruno is frustrated because his former team is beating the team he's now coaching, and every time his former team scores a song is played in the arena and Bruno is featured as a singer. Correct?

Is there another relevant person singing with Bruno on the recording?
Is the song only played because Bruno is present at the game? Could another song have been played instead if Bruno wasn't there?
Is Bruno expected to do something while the song is played? Sing along? Dance? Make some kind of sign or symbol with his hands? Interact with other people?

Is Bruno expected to do something while the song is played? Sing along? Dance? Make some kind of sign or symbol with his hands? Interact with other people?

As we are basically done, and the details to complete the story are not very lateral to find out, I should declare this puzzle solved...

SPOILER

At one match in the Geman (Football/Soccer) Bundesliga last year, one of the performers of the goal song (the piece that is played when the home team scores) was the opponent's coach!

The match was Darmstadt vs Hamburg, and the man in question was Bruno Labbadia, Hamburg's not very successful (and since-fired) Coach.
Bruno was raised in Darmstadt, and was a prolific striker and fan favourite with the club in the 80's. At one time, he took part in the recording of a football song for the club, providing some background voice. Despite the lead voice being a Pizza baker and hobby singer, that song became tremendously popular with the club, maybe because of Bruno in the background, and was adopted as something of a Club anthemn until today, with the chorus used as a goal celebration Music.

And of course, Bruno didn't mind being played 30 years later. He was just furious as coaches are furious when they have just conceded a Goal.

Here is a video of this "masterpiece". The lyrics start "The sun is shining", which is painfully ironic if you stand in Darmstadt's very old stadium with no roof in the pouring rain - that's what the puzzle title is about.

Thanks everyone for playing, despite the puzzle startet to smell funny about halfway through...
