AC/DC are back in the USA! And they started their with their first killer show in Foxboro, MA!

The biggest surprise of then night was the acoustics in the stadium. The sound was probably the best of the entire tour maybe because of the fact that the Stadium was opened at the back, opposite the stage. Another surprise was the audience. Despite the reserved seating policy in the entire stadium, including the floor, the crowd was extremely loud, especially from TNT until the end. To us being forced to remain in your seat/spot for the entire show seems to be a contradiction in terms for a rock show. However, the American crowd seemed to be ok with it and everybody was very disciplined. But they screamed pretty loud for the entire show.

The organization was also surprisingly good. Almost impeccable. Just like the traffic management system after the show, which didn't leave stuck in the traffic for hours as it happened in several countries in Europe. We noticed this in Coachella. We experienced it again in Foxboro.

What was no surprise was the setlist and the excellent performance of the band. In particular, Angus. From Play Ball onwards the band really changed pace. High Voltage, Sin City, TNT were the highlights of the night. LTBR solo was changed a bit. Brian seemed to be in much better shape than Europe, probably thanks to the one month break!

Next stop, new Jersey. Salute!
