AC/DC Abruzzo made it to Glasgow and our flag was raised in the Hampden Park stadium as promised. "From Wilkes Barre to Glasgow…"

It was a great night for rock’n’roll. One of those night you can't forget. The atmosphere was really special. The audience proved to be one of the best of the tour, very warm and ready to have fun altogether, especially in the pit. Great venue. We got feelings similar to the indoor show in Dublin. During the show we jumped and screamed like crazy, a lot of sweat and some crowd surfing and some “friendly moshing”. We really wanted to have great fun at the last show of the European tour. And we got it.

As for the performance the band put on a hell of a show as usual. Maybe some attentive people might say that they looked a bit tired, especially Angus, but we’re sure that most people didn't noticed. The highlight of the show was Bonny. Ok, they didn’t play It’s a long way to the top, and maybe they will never play it, but it was cool to hear Angus play something different, even if only for a few seconds.

Before the show, in front of the stadium, just by the bagpipe guy, we had met some of our companions in this rock’n’roll journey from Wilkes Barre to Glasgow. Other crazy guys who went to around 30-40 shows only for this tour.... Miscello, Carlone, Orangus, Dirty Shoes, Jeanpippo etc. It really seemed like it all came full circle in Glasgow… It was a nice feeling, especially with the bagpipes in the background…

Honestly, it's been pretty difficult to write this entry. The European tour is now officially over. We needed a couple of days of reflection... It was a glorious time for AC/DC Abruzzo. We spent 4 months on the road, on and off, with one of the greatest rock band in the history of music. We attended more than 30 concerts in 12 different countries (maybe more) meeting hundreds of people, making all kinds of rock’n’roll experiences, hanging out with rockstars. It was a dream we had for years after the Hammersmith gig and we will treasure this for the rest of our lives.

But Project AC/DC Abruzzo hasn’t been only a way to share our stories with other hardcore fans around the world. It has been also a way to prove that nothing is impossible and that, if you really want it, you can achieve anything. It wasn't an easy task but we proved that it is possible to create a rewarding lifestyle tailored to your priorities.

The first part of the AC/DC Abruzzo project, now closed, proved undoubtedly successful.

The President looks forward

In the next entry we'll post something special from Angus to our fans!


  1. I must say, I have followed this blog since its opening. I have looked anxiously each and every day for all the reviews, set-lists changes, etc. It gave me great insight, and was incredibly interesting to read. Thank you guys for carrying a great job in Project AC/DC Abruzzo.

  7. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I
    think I would never understand. It seems too complicated
    and very broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
