Tonight AC/DC came back to Spain after Bilbao 2010, the last show of the Black Ice Tour (and the last show with Malcolm...) The Barcelona crowd was great but still not as good as the French one. Still you could tell they were pretty "hungry for AC/DC" after AC/DC with a lot of jumping, singing etc... We can't wait to see the Madrid crowd.

The stage for this concert looked smaller, just like in Arnhem, with less distance between stage and first row. Maybe they have a smaller setup for smaller venues, like the Barcelona Stadium (which officially can hold up to 57,000 people). For the first time this tour it was pretty tough to find tickets outside, even from scalpers...

The boys were in very good shape after the 3 days off. Brian started a bit slow, then he went on fire as usual. And Angus, he was particularly inspired tonight. And he really went the extra mile. Amazing performance! Check out our videos on youtube.

Our favourite song of this tour is High Voltage. At minute 4:02 Brian pays homage to Malcolm.

The SG Sunburst was used tonight for Dirty Deeds.

At the end of the show we met old friends and other fans from the Black Ice Tour, from El Rana to Phillo from Belgium.

Another memorable day for Rock'n'Roll lovers... See you in Madrid

Stade de France, Paris 26 May 2015 - Part 2


We just arrived in Barcelona to get ready for the first Spanish gig with one of the best rock audience in the world.

We can't stop thinking about the amazing Paris nights... What a great dose of pure rock'n'roll...

Here's a couple of our videos from the "Fosse Debout" aka "Pelouse Or" of the legendary Stade de France. A lit bit shaky, but I guess you can understand the reason why...

Stade France, Paris 26 May 2015 - Night Report - CHAPEAU!

Hats off to the French crowd! Tonight was even better than 23 May! The stadium was packed again with French fans hungry for AC/DC!

We watched the show in the Pelouse Or section, Ciff's side. The audience was absolutely fantastic there! Same level as Bercy 2009. A lot of fun just a few meter from the greatest band in the world! Crowdsurfing and pogo at its best!

The sight of the Stade de France with it's 78,000 people was amazing with official and non official devils' horns flashing everywhere.

The band looked again in great shape despite some normal sign of fatigue. Angus, the best.

Stade France, Paris 23 May 2015 - Night Report

What a show tonight! Definitely the best audience and venue of the tour so far. The French know how to rock, especially at an AC/DC concert. Of course, it wasn't as good as a small venue like Bercy but still much better than Holland and Germany. The crowd was singing loud, jumping and there was also a small "pogo section" (where we were of course). We knew that and we also know the Spanish crowd will be even better but Paris is always special...

The band's performance was great as usual tonight but comparing to the previous two shows we attended the band looked a bit tired, especially Brian. Apparently there were a couple of technical problems with the sound (Baptism by Fire), and this affected Brian.

Angus was just incredible tonight, especially in the second half. We can always see the extra work he puts into each show now that he is the only leader...
