It was just a lot of fun, I remember playing the stadium in Paris, we were opening for AC/DC, and that was – as an AC/DC fan, that was one of those pinch-me moments.

I think it was after we finished, Brian Johnson came in said hello to everybody, then we got to watch them do their show, and yeah, it was great, it was just a lot of really great memories – touring all over the world and meeting a lot of the people that you look up to and respect, and it was cool.”
