From the Secretary General's Private Journal

I arrived to Seville from Germany the day before the show. The President has been travelling by himself for the last few shows. Basically he's been flying in and flying out just like AC/DC, except he doesn't have a private jet... Not yet, at least...
Seville, in certain areas, really looks like Naples. I loved it! Maybe a more laid back version of the Italian city, but it definitely looks like the south of Italy. Naples had been ruled for a long time by the Spanish, so the similarity is historically understandable... So everything is more dysfunctional than the rest of Europe, from Taxis to bars... And you get the feeling that legality is not a prerequisite... Speaking English here is counterproductive so I used Italian and dialect. Body language was also very useful to communicate with locals.
The President arrived from Pisa, Italy a few hours before the show with Uncle Michel. I heard they had organised a stopover in Italy to have a good Italian meal (seafood). Bastards... I only had two lousy sandwiches for lunch...
After hiring an illegal taxi (impossible to find taxis were before the show) we arrived to the Stadium. Outside the sight was quite peculiar. Lots of people cooking and selling barbecue meat and "home made" cocktails (the infamous "Botellón"). Fans were wearing all sort of bootleg t-shirts but it was too late to buy them because they had been already confiscated by AC/DC security (It has been pretty hard on this tour to get "non repetitive/monotonous" t-shirts like the BACK IN... series...). The show was great. The crowd was extremely loud but it wasn't moving a lot. Still they were jumping a lot, even between the songs and very far from the stage. Ironically, there were more people in the back of the standing section than in front. The performance of the band was impeccable as usual. It's hard to believe that the end is getting near....
Ciao from Bilbao...

Let There Be Rock in Seville


  1. AC/DC need to reconsider about finishing this tour. They are just getting warm now, and should go back to Canada/US, and do another leg in Australia, and than finish the tour with indoor arenas in Europe in the winter. They only need to make a few changes in the setlist.

  2. Sometimes I really wonder what I envy the most about you guys, if the fact of attending so many concerts or all the meals you have :/
