AC/DC is back in Madrid in front of one of the best rock audiences in the world! Another unforgettable night for rock'n'roll and the history of AC/DC and Spain.

Again, not even one single ticket was available at the box office and, unlike Germany and France it was very difficult to find tickets outside the Stadium. The concert started at 10pm, like in Barcelona and until a few minutes before the show Spanish fans were still outside with their "boteillon" and home made street cocktails! Real party animals!

Excellent performance of the band with just a few minor "noticeable mistakes" (e.g. Shoot To Thrill). Brian's voice was slightly better than in Barcelona and Angus delivered the same super performance, in intensity, energy and passion. For the second time in this tour (excluding Coachella) he finished the show without shirt (Madrid's temperature has been quite high up to 40°C).

The other protagonist of the night was the crowd. A "Champions' League" crowd jumping and screaming like crazy for the whole show in a totally packed stadium. Although for us the best audience of the show was still Paris 26 May 2015, the Spanish crowd deserves credits, also for their kindness, friendliness and warmth.

High Voltage remains our favourite song in the set. This tour we particularly enjoy Shot Down in Flames and Hell's Bells pretty much, as much as the new entries Sin City and Have a Drink on Me. Rock'n'Roll Train brings back a lot of memories too...

Tomorrow another big dose of rock'n'roll tomorrow in Madrid. NO BULL!
