It seems like just yesterday my best friend Dan told me about AC/DC, and put the Back in Black album in his CD player. I was floored by the music I was hearing, especially “Hells Bells”, “Givin The Dog A Bone” and my personal all time favorite AC/DC tune, “Back In Black.” Well, I was fortunate enough to get to see AC/DC perform live this week, and what an AMAZING experience!
The band came out in their typical attire (Brian Johnson in a cutoff shirt, Angus Young in his well known shorts and tie, etc.), and they sounded clear, focused and energized from the minute they started playing their instruments! The opening song “Rock N’ Roll Train” sounded amazing, and their stage presence absolutely floored me (Angus still has his classic kick and strut!).
The biggest surprise of the evening was the song “Whole Lotta Rosie,” which had one of the coolest backdrops of any song I’ve ever heard (you need to go see them to understand what I’m talking about). In addition to “Rock N’ Roll Train,” the band also played their big hits including “Back In Black,” “TNT,” “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap,” Hells Bells,” “Highway to Hell,” and “For those about to rock (we salute you)” live and in their entirety!
Now if I had to rank the show on a one to ten scale, I would definitely have to say the show went to eleven. It ranks in my top ten, which given the number of shows I’ve attended, is a hard feat to muster. So if the guys from AC/DC come across this short concert review, we here at Prefetch salute you (I say this literally, since I just picked up one of their live albums and a cool t-shirt)!!
