The lead singer came back onto the stage and held up both of his hands to quiet the excited audience down after a few minutes of wild cheering and calls for an encore.
He kept both hands up until it became silent enough in the large arena that you could hear that proverbial pin drop.
The silence lasted for around thirty seconds before he grabbed the neck of his guitar with his left hand and brought his right hand down to the body and across the strings as he began the riff to the song everyone had been waiting for.
