What a fantastic night for Rock'n'Roll! A concert which will not be easily forgotten by anyone attending the Wembley show, from the hard core fan to the first timer. Fantastic venue, fantastic crowd, fantastic performance!

The stadium was filled to the brim. It was an impressive sight! We don't know the official capacity, maybe 70,000, 80,000 90,000... Tickets on the black market were the most expensive of the whole tour which proved that the English fans were really hungry for an AC/DC concert and would have paid anything to see them live again after 5 years!

Bottom line, it was an amazing crowd! As amazing as Paris Stade de France, or maybe even more. From the last seat on the higher level to the first rows in front of the stage, in the "moshpit"...

Ah... the moshpit...  For us it was like going back in time! Yesterday night we were just a few meters from the stage and we got exactly the same feelings we had that night in the Hammersmith theatre in October 2003. Just in the middle of a crazy jumping crowd ready to rock with the live music of the best rock band in the world! From the first chord to the last one. Same energy, same music, same hard core fans... (some of them were actually wearing an Hammersmith 2003 t-shirt).

The band's performance was excellent. There was a mistake by Brian at the beginning of Shoot To Thrill but after a few seconds everything was fixed. Even super heroes like Brian can make mistake. But what he's doing during this tour, despite everything, the sound problems etc, is absolutely remarkable and we are most grateful for all his efforts. Angus was impeccable in every move. His leadership gets more evident every night. The rest of the band was also very inspired, including Stevie and Chris who had relatives and family attending the show.

Thunderstruck was definitely one of the highlights of the night. Also Sin City, Have a Drink on Me and TNT, with the crowd screaming pretty loud. The finale with For Those About to Rock and the fireworks was epic!

We didn't take many photos for obvious reasons but we still have more material to upload from the Wembley show so stay tuned.

Tomorrow morning we'll be on the Rock'n'Roll train to: DESSEL!

Super Brian
ANGUS YOUNG - Impeccable as usual
Mr Thunderstruck

Happy fans after the show
