Sound: I've waited to see AC/DC a long while and it was worth the wait. My first impression was that they have aged, however at the same instant I realised it didn't matter because they were instantly impressive. They were straight into it like they were 21 again and rocking harder than ever. They gave every note all their might. Angus still has it!
Generally I felt the sound was pretty decent. There weren't really any times when I felt I couldn't hear them, but then again when you have been playing this game as long as AC/DC have, you can't really go wrong. // 8
Perfomance: The introduction to the show was extremely impressive. There was a cartoon of them on a runaway train, which was getting faster and faster, followed by a huge on stage explosion and a real life sized train bursting through the back of the stage. Everyone was so distracted we didn't even notice the band had taken their place on stage. The lights came on and the band started playing. It was great. Angus got on his own podium at the end of the catwalk which raised high above the audience where he continued to pull out all of his signature on stage moves.
One thing I noticed at the AC/DC show was the number of AC/DC t-shirts being supported by the audience. I would go as far as to say that 80% of the audience had an AC/DC shirt on. This added to the atmosphere massively. Everyone knew every word to every song and it was as if the band had the audiences attention for every moment they were on stage. // 9
Overall Impression: UK, Birmingham, NEC, 23/04/2009. The focus of the show, as you could predict was all on Angus and Brian. I never really took much notice of the rest of the band. Angus was constantly pulling off his signature on stage moves, which just kept the atmosphere high and buzzing. // 9
