THE ORANGUS' DIARY - 24th concert in a row

From Essen in Germany I had to take several trains to get to Copenhagen. it was a nightmare. I had to take 4 trains and all of them were delayed. I had to change connections and then one hour by boat. But I made it to Copenhagen safe and sound. Some people complain about Italian trains. I prefer to complain only about Italian people... Don't take trains in Germany.

I started losing awareness of the reality, sleeping in youth hostels, waking up in different countries and eating apple pies, the only suitable food for this lifestyle and for my food allergies. Good! That's rockn'roll.

I spent the whole day of the show in Copenhagen, contemplating the beauty of the little mermaid (although I don't like women exposing their breast in public) and a couple of local museums. I made a quick Skype call to Stefano in London just to check the quality of the Museum wifi connection.

On my way to Roskilde the first train stopped after 1 km. There was a mechanical failure with an another train on the same line. I lost almost an hour. But I got to the venue while Vintage Trouble were still playing, earlier than usual.

Inside there was a large FOS section where I could enjoy the show and jump as much as I liked, and comfortably. 

The show started well then there was a problem with the beginning of High Voltage (as usual), maybe it was because of Angus. Then we got the best Rock'n'Roll train of the whole tour. And from that moment there was a crescendo. Top performance.

Ironically, In the audience there were more colored people than in all the 81 AC/DC shows I've seen in my life. Interesting. But the crowd was a disaster. People were sleepy almost for the entire show. I can't believe these are the heirs of the glorious Vikings. Too much feminism, gay rights and woman emancipation CENSORED - CENSORED - CENSORED. The only crazy fan jumping for two hours was me, an heir of the glorious Longobards, Orangus!

IMOLA 2015 - The Aftermath

Angus on fire
