For Those About to Rock (We Salute You) 

Report by Stefano, the AC/DC ABRUZZO Secretary General

Beautiful day, with Orangus forecasting sunshine. The city is already full of Scots in kilts, invading local breweries from the early hours of the morning.

I arrived at Olympiapark just after 5 PM. The atmosphere was convivial, with all the outdoor dining areas filled with Germans in their colorful denim jackets adorned with commemorative patches. The Golden Circle section was quite full by 6 PM, a mixed crowd with many families and children. There were fewer attempts at the OLA and chanting compared to Sunday’s concert and fewer young people. I positioned myself on the right as usual, but closer to the barrier. Some people were complaining about the lack of space in the pitch. I advised them to buy Seat tickets next time.

The show started promptly at 8:30 PM. Angus was back in blue, and it was great to see him so close during "If You Want Blood (You've Got It)," played with precision and power. A couple of times when he came to the right corner of the stage, I enjoyed the moment without taking photos or videos—pure bliss. It’s incredible how, at his age, he still has an insatiable hunger for rock 'n' roll.

In the first part of the concert, the band seemed a bit more tired compared to Sunday. Angus did less duckwalking, and Brian performed his duties with professionalism. His voice sounded clean to me. From "Sin City" onwards, the band started to grind out some great rock. Brian was in "wide-eyed screaming mode" very ofter (as Phil the Belgian put it), and at times reminded me of the energy and moves from the Black Ice tour. The band seems to enjoy themselves on stage and gains confidence with each concert. Certainly, an extra day of rest makes a difference, and in my opinion, Munich 1 was better than today. But who cares!

Best Songs of the Night

"Sin City," "High Voltage," and "Highway to Hell" were highlights, but I also really enjoyed "Rock 'n' Roll Train." The crowd appreciated Angus’s solo on the catwalk and platform during "Let There Be Rock." It was great when he challenged the audience to be louder. Any attempts at a mosh pit were quickly suppressed by ladies more focused on protecting their space than having fun. The Colombian/Swedish fans from the previous concert mini moshpit were desperate and looked for my help on several occasions.

Overall, it was a solid concert. It started a bit slow, but they picked up in the second half.

Other Points to Mention:

- The playful interaction between Brian and Angus during "Dirty Deeds." with two vocals contributian by Angus as you can see in my video

- Brian not screaming at the end of "Highway to Hell" and touching his throat.

- Angus not dropping to the ground at the end of "Let There Be Rock just like on Sunday

- Orangus celebrating his 140th concert, standing right next to me.

- A kid jumping throughout the entire concert often annoyed Orangus who is less into jumping than previous tours...

In conclusion, Munich delivered another fantastic night of rock 'n' roll. The band continues to prove why they are legends, and I’m grateful to be part of this incredible journey. Now, on to the next one!

Rock on,

Stefano, Secretary General
