PERTH, Australia March 9, 2010
AC/DC Abruzzo: Hi Angus, we just wanted to thank you for this amazing tour. It's been fantastic!
Angus Young: Thanks. You're Abruzzo, aren't you? (smiling)
AC/DC Abruzzo: ... :O
This was the last meeting with Angus in Australia. We also met him in Europe in 2009 and 2010, but in Perth for some reason, it was something special. In Australia you can feel the presence of Bon and the true essence of AC/DC more then anywhere else... It was one of those unforgettable moments of this tour that we'll treasure forever.
Unforgettable. Just like when we met our good friend Yann from France outside the San Mames stadium in Bilbao on June 28 before the show. He explained to us how AC/DC Abruzzo had been important for all those hard core fans who had managed to follow the tour thanks to us. He showed us he was literally having goosebumps thinking of what we had accomplished on behalf of the fan community, in the name of AC/DC and Rock'n'Roll...
When we think about moments like these, about Angus' smile or Yann's grateful look, about all the wonderful memories we've gathered during the tour and about all the support messages we've received from all over the world in the last 20 months, we get the confirmation that this was the right thing to do in this moment of our lives.
And we also got some tears in our eyes when we realized that the dream from the London Hammersmith show in 2003 finally came true...
Thank you AC/DC!
