AC/DC Wembley Stadium 04-07-15
On a thankfully slightly cooler evening than expected the rock masses encamped to Wembley Stadium for AC/DC's only English date in support of new album Rock Or Bust and the follow up to their date at the stadium in 2009.
First up we had Los Angeles's Vintage Trouble who call themselves rhythm & blues, soul, rock, blues which was a fair description.
Their 40 minute set had the following songs played
High Times (They Are Coming)
Blues Hand Me Down
If You Loved Me
Angel City California
Run Like The River
Strike Your Light (Right on Me)
All suited and booted and led by the striking vocals and red shirt of Ty Taylor who was a ball of energy stalking the huge stage and imploring the crowd to give more even when he crowd surfed at one point.
Ably backed by Nalle Colt on guitar,Rick Barrio Dill on bass and Richard Danielson on drums they hit us with some new tunes from the upcoming 1 Hopeful Road cd due out in August with Angel City California and Run Like The River impressing.
I could have done with out the continual crowd participation including Mexican wave and shouts of AC DC when they could have played at least one more number but all told a decent warm up.
Not that the 90000 present needed warming up as the anticipation reached boiling point as the video back drop burst into life.
For 2 hours we were treated to a spectacle few will ever match and here is what the played.
