"Don't HATE ME because I'm beautiful" Dean!!!!! :mrgreen:

I have to say that I was absolutely SHOCKED at how good the show was & what a true showman Angus Young is!!!!!! :applause:

He sounded exceptional, looked fantastic & had more energy than guys 1/2 his age. I truly think he must have made a deal w/ the devil too! :laughhard:

Best show I've seen in years! :wink:

PS - 2-hours straight of high energy music & no talking! Yea! \m/

You're in for a real treat Doc! 8)

I've always loved AC/DC, but never seen them live. I worried that maybe I waited a little too long & was SO WRONG about this.

Everything was just fantastic on all levels!!!!!

My first concert ever was AC/DC Oct,18,1983 Cow Palace San Francisco
Angus is such a great performer and their songs are timeless to me.
So forward to now and my 5 1/2 year old nephew keeps yelling Duh Duh into the microphone a few months back when my brother and I realized he was yelling Thunder Thunder from the Planes movie sound track. Holy Cow that was so awesome!
Glad you had a great time!

I was also at that concert...the Cow Palace is an awful place for concerts, but I still love that old building.

I saw AC/DC 1985ish at Cobo Arena in Detroit. I was expecting to get my head blown off with Volume but was pleasantly surprised with one of the Best Sounding concerts I've ever been.

I had the exact same experience here too! While it wasn't a quiet concert, I was dead center & very close & it sound big, bold & beautiful.......& never crazy loud or muddy! :applause:

AC/DC hve to be one of the funest (is that a word?) bands to see live and I think there music is timeless as well. I've seen them a few times and I just don't know where Angus gets the energy from, but I'd love to tap into that well! His vibrato alone blows me away, but I've always really liked his solos. I really like how Malcolm and Angus handle the guitar parts and not just playing the same thing. I'm a fan!

Cheers,
:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
