For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)
Almost 6 years ago AC/DC played the last but one show with Malcolm at this stadium in Seville, Spain. A very special show with one of the best and wildest and hottest crowds in Europe.
After Lisbon, the new AC/DC with Axl Rose conquers Seville, the Spanish audience and media. The show is enjoyable for "mainstream" fans who want to have a good time at a classic rock'n'roll show. AC/DC Music and Angus are too powerful. The fact that the singer is Axl Rose confined on a wheel chair is just a detail for the majority. Angus was right, the tour could not be cancelled because too many fans want to see AC/DC, even for the first (and probably last time).
The audience was loud and very warm and from Shoot To Thrill to For Those About to Rock you could see lots of people jumping like crazy. We were pretty impressed.
Setlist was the same as in Lisbon. Despite Axl's voice is excellent it looks Angus doesn't want to take any risk in adding other songs (like Touch Too Much and Gimme a Bullet which were rehearsed). Or maybe not yet. We are still convinced Rock'n'Roll Train (even if played better than Lisbon) should be dropped, as well as High Voltage which is not as effective as with Brian. Well, the entire setlist should be changed but it is clear this will never happened so let's stick to the positive things.
Rock'n'Roll Damnation is pure bliss to our ears. Not to mention Riff Raff. Angus played with great intensity, even more than Lisbon. You can tell there is a special bond with the Spanish crowd, like in Madrid or Barcelona last year. Let There Be Rock performance and solos were amazing. For Those About to Rock sounds as good as the cv.
Axl's voice is in perfect working order after two shows. Listening to the first 2, 3 songs we had the impression it had suffered after the first show, but in fact it was still very powerful. There are rumours saying Axl will be standing in Marseille, but we seriously doubt he will be able to walk or run as he should when performing on stage.
Nice wardrobe change for Axl before Highway to Hell. White leather jacket, pretty stylish. Also, a brand new pair of sunglasses.
See you in Marseille, maybe our last show.
