OFFICIAL AC/DC ABRUZZO REPORT
After a memorable concert at the Madison Square Garden, a true legendary arena with the best acoustics ever for an indoor rock venue, we headed to Washington. In New York we met our old friends from AC/DC Belgium, Arnaud, Kaori and Hubby, the Germans and many more and we got to see an amazing show. Our impression was that the band played better than in Europe in summer. And Live Wire was another perfect gift to hard core fans, after Touch Too Much.
We were "sitting" in the floor section in New York just in front of the VIP section where Cliff's daughter, wife and MOTHER (apparently 95 year old) were spotted. Also, a lot of models and girls, maybe guests of Axl's ? Everything was great, except for the sleepy American crowd in their reserved seats... Truly difficult to understand for Europeans... Anyway, it was probably the smaller arena where we saw AC/DC during this tour so it was pretty cool for us.
Despite the fact that we were exhausted because of the 14 hour flight and the jetlag but we really had a good time in New York.
I Washington we met Tracy from Australia, Terry from AC/DC Family, Christian from Argentina and many more. The Verizon Center in Washington looked a bit smaller than the MSG and equally intimate. Before the show Dave Grohl from Foo Fighters showed up and sat just next to us. What a cool guy. He looked like a child in a candy store and rocked out during the whole show behind us. :D
Again a great performance from the band. TNT and Let There Be Rock were excellent. If You Want Blood and Live Wire were our favourite songs in the setlis. Angus was again in rock'n'roll trance and showed everyone, once again, why AC/DC should not stop with this tour...
For the first time ever we saw a sign language interpreter translating the songs during the concert. You can see in our video recording of IFYWB.
See you in Philly. Last show of the tour, and maybe of AC/DC...
