AC/DC Olympic Stadium London 04-06-16
New venue for me and a very impressive Olympic Stadium the new home of West Ham United and this was to be the opening show here.
I was fortunate to see AC/DC in 1982 as a 16 year old and this was my youngest son Matt's first AC/DC show at the age of 13.
With Matt resplendent in his new AC/DC t shirt we managed to sneak into the gold circle part of the stadium for the first 6000 people.
First up Tyler Bryant And The Shakedown from Tennessee who played a 45 minute set that for me had too many time changes and slower parts so any momentum built up soon went.
When they just played the song not bad but in a huge stadium grab the attention and don't stop.
From the day it was announced that Brian Johnson was having to give up live work due to a hearing problem the internet has been alive with who should or should not or even should they?
Then the call to Axl Rose and the internet nearly combusts with the amount of flack the band received for appointing him.
Youtube footage of the earlier shows had shown a man and a band in perfect harmony and a lot of people who had got their refunds may have been wondering if the call had gone in to early.
With an extra 15 minutes added to the setlist in comparison from last year's Wembley show this is what they played.
