First Canadian show and back to the GA, European style with another great audience and another great performance of AC/DC.

Plains of Abraham is a huge historic park in the middle of Quebec City, the French speaking capital of Quebec. Great venue for an open air concert (apparently its capacity can go up to 300,000 people like for the free McCartney concert a couple of years ago). The front of stage section was the biggest one of the whole tour (15,000 people out of 65,000). The Quebecois crowd was pretty cool and disciplined (it was the first time that we saw beer sold in aluminum cans at an ACDC concert). Nice shiny moon in the sky.

Angus was wearing the brown suit with green tie and green hat. He was pretty playful during the show, especially when he decided to wear the AC/DC's devils horns which were thrown on stage by fans. However, he never loses his concentration and it's difficult to spot any mistake in his performance. He is also very passionate and intense. We just love when he sings lines of songs while duckwalking (especially the Sin City line "Bring on the dancin' girls and put the Champagne on ice"). High Voltage, which was slightly changed by Brian, together with Sin City and Have a Drink of Me are still our favorite songs in the setlist.

Brian is actually getting better show by show. He was also quite playful, very energetic, he mentioned Malcolm again and also replaced the words "Sin City" with "Quebec City".

The intro to Highway to Hell was much longer than usual as the elevator didn't work and Angus could not come out from hell as usual. :)

For the record, "Uncensored" hard core fan Carole from Canada got on the big screens during You Shook Me All Night Long just like she used to do during The Jack in the Black Ice Tour. The audience loved it!

Next stop MONTREAL!

Playful Angus
