The complete laminates collection from the Black Ice World Tour 2008-2010
As you can imagine after seeing 85 shows and travelling more than 26 countries we gathered a huge archive of memorabilia and audio/video material from the tour. Each object has memories and stories attached... We'll share some of them on this blog.
MALCOLM'S PICK - BIRMINGHAM 23 April, 2009
"And this is what happens to Malcolm's pick after a show..." - Takumi Suetsugu
We met Takumi, one of AC/DC's guitar techs during the 2009 arena tour, after the Birmingham show in April 2009. We knew that was probably the last AC/DC show in a small covered arena in Europe. From that day on, AC/DC would play only huge stadiums....
Takumi was very friendly, despite the late hour, and spent a few minutes with us telling about how much he loved Italy when he was there with AC/DC in March. He told us about his trip to Venice on the day off between the two Milan gigs... Then, he gave us a few picks of Malcolm and Angus including the one used by Malcolm during the Birmingham show...
The 2009 indoor tour had finally come to an end.
Baby please don't go
