"AC/DC will play in a tiny club in California before their world tour"
Nostranovis, December 2014
The prophecy of Nostranovis was fulfilled just a few hours ago. AC/DC DID play in a tiny club in California before the world tour. And the club chosen was "The Dragonfly club" in Hollywood, California. It was not a real concert but still the band was on stage playing for the recording of the new video clip "Rock The Blues Away" in front of less than 100 lucky fans!!! The prophet was right.
We couldn't make it because of the short notice but some of the closest AC/DC Abruzzo friends were there! Matthew from Vancouver, BC and Christian, from Buenos Aires, Argentina and, last but not least, Marco "The ACDC Italia Stallion" from Brescia, Arizona.

Reportedly, the meeting point was near a cemetery and then only 3 buses were used to take the fans to the venue. Much smaller scale than London and apparently no Europeans, except one Italian.
Inside the Dragonfly it was hot as hell, apparently because they needed the A/C off for the smoke.

Christian and Matthew, two of the craziest AC/DC fans in the world, confirmed that this unique event one was even more special than the London video in October. The band was extremely energetic on stage and in a very good mood. Almost ready for the World Tour kick off!

They did 5 takes with the new single "Rock The Blues Away" and 1 take with the audience only. Brian was as super friendly as usual and Angus and Stevie even came back after the last take to meet the fans and sign autographs. Chris Slade is now back with the band with an official release and, honestly, we think Angus& co made a very good choice to replace "crazy Phil", who had become a liability for the future of the band...
The video will be out in about a month according to our sources. Promotional clips and interviews will be published while waiting on the AC/DC social media.
For the moment here's some photos from the videoshoot (by Nagra Productions) and a short (but intense) video clip by Don Dean.
