Yeah, Brian Johnson already said they will tour.40 shows for the 40th anniv. I think? And usually a record release has a tour announcement as well. I've never seen the boys. And I'll never see Malcolm play. In 1979 they were on the bill with Aerosmith and Van Halen, then they released the bill again and their name wasn't on it. I remember being unhappy. I looked it up and they only played SanDiego and Oakland that year. Never found out why they cancelled. I will not miss this tour. :twisted: Let There Be Rock!

I've seen them a couple of times......hell of a show

The last time I saw the lads, they had been made aware by a radio station that the local residents association were lobbying to have the venue (Athletic Park) shut down due to noise levels and "antisocial behaviour" and that the majority of the City Councillors were in agreement....AC DC turned it up to eleven, breaching the agreed volume levels and went 45 minutes beyond the sports grounds curfew....possibly the loudest concert I've ever attended....and unsurprisingly it was the last concert held at the park, which was closed down and demolished, it's now a retirement village.

PS: A few friends and I took great pleasure in urinating in the president of the residents association's garden on the way home from that gig, also the killjoys letter box was a trophy at various student flats around the city for a couple of years....Rock and Rollllll :mrgreen:

My friend and I were out of pot. Best we could get, before showtime was peyote buttons. I wore my "The Who" t-shirt. A kid in line asked why. I stared at him for a couple of seconds, then went with "The aren't playing?". He ran off shouting "This guy thinks The Who are playing!" ....and another legend is born.
At one point, Angus (now shirtless) hopped onto a rather large roadie's shoulders. The roadie then descended into the audience, and with Angus still playing guitar, walked up the isle, and out the door. The guitar kept playing, while they were out of sight, and eventually they re-appeared from back stage. I felt sorry for the roadie...Angus was sweating rivers!

After that, not so much.

Hey retard from rhineland. FYI - only one of them wears a schoolboy uniform. da durrr!

First, I'll join a websites chat forum. Then I'll look for things that I don't like. Then I will post a comment telling everyone that I don't like it. But, I'm only just saying, even though I haven't checked the facts out, because I don't like them.

:lol: :mrgreen: :lol: :mrgreen:

Someone doesn't share your exact musical tastes and you become so easily upset?

Act your age not your shoe size. Your manners are showing.

But it's AC/DC. They bring out the kid in me. The fans are very protective. OK. Maybe he's joking. But it sure sounded like he thinks the whole band wears school boy garb. That's like saying that everyone in Ozzy's 1980's bands ran around in black eyeliner and ballet slippers. :lol: AC/DC fans forgive you Fritz. We're sorry you never got into the band.

Retard statement cheerfully withdrawn :mrgreen:



Please see Arkay's signiture for advice. End of rant. For now :twisted:

The only time I saw ACDC was on the back in black tour in Birmingham.
I was floored by a stage invader evading the security by jumping feet first into the crowd and catching me full in the chest. At first I thought it must be Angus doing a walk about....
Insanely loud too - the loudest gig I have ever been to.

Seen every tour since Back In Black. Haven't missed a single tour, and won't miss this one either. In my top 5 loudest concerts. AC/DC and LA Guns on the Thunderstruck tour. Hampton Coliseum July 8, 1991

I was trying to think of a track on there I don't like. I couldn't come up with anything.

Thanks, Milton. It was not my intention to spoil the fun. There's no accounting for taste. And I don't want to end on a LA freeway like Lebowski: Come on man, not the fucking Eagles.

I was trying to think of a track on there I don't like. I couldn't come up with anything.

I don't have that album. I have several AC/DC albums and since youse guys like that one alot, I thought I'd look it up on amg. They made a comment:

While the first disc of the 1997 box set Bonfire is the best document of live Bon Scott-era AC/DC ("Live From the Atlantic Studios"), If You Want Blood You've Got It is highly recommended.

It appears they like it too, but like Bonfire better. I have Bonfire and its pretty good, but I'm wondering if I should get If You Want Blood anyway. Are the differences minor? Thoughts?

Hmm, I should get Bonfire and find out!
