After flying back to Barcelona for a day we reached Zurich for the first time. In 2009 we had to skip the Zurich indoor show as it was canceled/rescheduled due to "technical problems" so this was our first AC/DC show in Switzerland.

After the first impact with Zurich and its incredibly high prices (even AC/DC t-shirts cost about 15-20% more than the usual price in euros) and trying a few Swiss specialties such as chocolate, we got to the concert.

The Letzigrund stadium was quite small, probably the smallest of the tour after Arnhem. The show started at 8.15pm instead of the 10pm of the Spanish shows so we got the first AC/DC show with most of the performance with daylight.

The crowd was not too bad, definitely better than the typical German crowd but nowhere near the Southern European crowds such as the Spanish, the French and the Italians...

It was pretty hot tonight. Angus dropped his jacket even before his cap (never happened before) and quickly took his shirt off... There were lots of noticeable sound problems tonight. Some were technical (e.g. High Voltage) some were because of mistakes (e.g. Shot Down in Flames or Sin City). Anyway the band played overall very well. Brian's voice sounds OK and the mood seems to be high as well (Angus was so playful that he couldn't resist the temptation of wearing sunglasses thrown on stage during Let There Be Rock). Brian said "Malcolm Young" instead of the usual "Malcolm!" during High Voltage.

For the record about one hour after the show we got a thunderstorm with lightnings and heavy rain. Orangus told us that it will rain on Sunday...

Here's some pictures and videos from tonight. For more please visit our Facebook and Youtube pages.

  1. Superb post! I am really glad that you shared this wonderful article. All these are just superb artists. Usually they perform at the domestic venues in DC. I have also attended a couple of their events.
