After 5 years we got back to one of the biggest venues in Europe, the majestic Berlin Olympiastadion who can hold up to 90,000 people. We arrived pretty late to the venue due to a flight delay. Marco Italia was with us this time for his first show after Coachella.

The show was sold out: a real sold out show! Not easy to find a single spot inside the stadium. Maybe Germans don't jump and shout like the Argentinians but their loyalty to AC/DC is just amazing... They could fill up any venue, even the biggest stadiums... Just amazing.

As Orangus told us the band is in great shape. We confirm that. Including Brian and his voice. We noticed a "crescendo" during the set with the peak reached during "Have a drink on me", which was one of the best songs together with "High Voltage" and "Sin City".

The sound seemed to be louder than the first leg (but it could have been our impression). The crowd was also pretty loud too, especially during TNT. There was some pogo in the standing section as well.

We are now in London, in our English headquarters, waiting for the Glasgow show, where the setlist will be changed and Bonnie will be played! Rock'n'Roll!

From the Road - Orangus' adventures in Germany!

After visiting Cologne Orangus has finally got to Hannover for another show. He's aiming at 100 AC/DC shows so nothing is going to stop him. Here's Orangus' report (not in chronological order).

"Due to the rain and other problems I got to the venue pretty late so I was pretty far from the stage, on the left side. Brian looked and sounded great. The other band members seemed they slowed down after Hell's Bells. Please check on youtube who f***ed up on YSMANL" Was it Brian? There were several mistakes today. Some new merchandising items, including a 100 euro jersey.

I met a few people on the plane and they knew both AC/DC Italia and AC/DC Abruzzo. CENSORED. I confirm Brian was in excellent hape but the mistake in YSMANL was horrendous. They almost stopped playing. Like in Budapest 2009. Maybe it was a technical mistake... Slade apparently made another mistake on FTATR. We tried to bribe the security to get into the FOS area before the show but no chance. By the way I was the only one in shorts despite the weather..."
