From the Orangus' diaries - Werchter 16 May 2016

Werchter was my 114th AC/DC. Those fans who have met me know I haven't missed one show since Arnhem last year (except Australia, which is too far). I did all the European shows, North American shows, outdoor and indoor, and saw Brian's last show in Kansas City. I will do as many concerts as possible, probably all the remaining ones. Nobody can stop Orangus, not even Axl Rose.

"If You Want Blood" was the perfect treat in Marseille and I couldn't wait to hear it again in Werchter. I was in Hammersmith in 2003 and had been waiting for this song since then. After the show in Marseille I had a smile on my face for many hours. People must have though I was completely crazy, which is probably true anyway.

The band played very well in Werchter. Probably Marseille was better until Let There Be Rock then, Belgium was better than France. The audience was calmer than France.

After Axl joined the only place I can really enjoy the show is in front of the catwalk. This was there is no chance I can see the stage and him. I can still enjoy the mighty sound of AC/DC and see Angus when he comes forward on the catwalk. I can jump as much as I want there as that spot is almost empty. Let there be (AC/DC) sound!


As you may well know, AC/DC are one of the most down to earth bands around. Despite their phenomenal success, they’ve never let it go to their heads and maintain a great relationship with their fans. To celebrate over 40 years of rock'n'roll a group of fans from all over the world have gathered together to create the first international AC/DC fanzine: Overdose.
Overdose offers readers exclusive interviews, eye-witness accounts and never before heard snippets and stories from the band’s eventful four decades on the road.
