AC/DC

Ac/dc

On paper the idea of AC/DC shouldn’t work. They’re Australian (well via Scotland); the lead guitarist is a fifty-something dressed in a velour school uniform, and their own brand of rock’n’roll remains as wantonly unsophisticated as it was 35 years ago. But it’s maybe this divine formula and brazen live spectacle that have helped shift 200 million albums and guarantee pretty much constantly sold out stadium shows around the world. For AC/DC, more is definitely more, like the life-size locomotives stage set they’re bringing this time round. And for that we salute them.

I had listened to AC/DC music on the radio for years. I didn't own any AC/DC albums/cds; knew nothing about them. It wasn't until I saw them in concert on December 14 last year that I became a real fan. Now, I have ten of their cds, read a 500-page book about them, bought five or six AC/DC t-shirts, just took a two-week trip to Europe to see them in Paris and Amsterdam. See them in concert--you will get it.
