AC/DC Abruzzo has just arrived in
We spent the last 5 days in Paris eating good local food (we’ll post some photos soon), meeting new and old friends and trying to recover our energies from the exhausting previous week spent on the road (and I'll tell you folks it's harder than it looks!).
Before the show outside the Arena we bumped into a fan from
Once inside the Arena we immediately noticed the extra camera over the audience. We had heard about those rumours about Dave Mallet being in
As for the setlist, there was just a minor change in the order of the songs. Actually, we were almost dying when Brian at a certain point said "We’ve got a special song for
For AC/DC Abruzzo the best song of the night was TNT. It was just pure bliss for a AC/DC fan to hear such a nasty OI OI OI from the audience singing along with Angus. During that song in the area where we were standing some people starting some pretty violent “Pimball Pogo" along with some crowd surfing. Everybody looked like they were having the time of their life. Including us. From TNT on, there was a real CRESCENDO… After an incredibly powerful version of Whole Lotta Rosie Let There Be Rock started. At that point we really felt rock’n’roll taking over our body and mind! In this Rock’n’Roll trance we just felt it was the right moment to improvise a Bon Fire feat: Stefano jumped on Matteo's shoulders showing the flag to the entire French audience for several minutes of pure rock’n’roll ecstasy. What a great feeling... We had several cameras pointed at us so you might see us on TV soon.... AH AH AH
To conclude, we want to underline the professional job done by the security guys that never interfered with the audience, they let us have a good time and were always helpful giving us water during and after the show. We salute them!
Bottom line, I think Paris 2009 will be a milestone for AC/DC fans. We’re sure they really enjoyed playing there as much as we did!
And tomorrow it will be BEDLAM IN BELGIUM!!
AC/DC ABRUZZO salutes you!
