See I didn't know that they're doing a consistent set list for the tour. Regardless, that list is amazing.

 Does anyone know or remember the entire set list? From what I can tell from watching clips, it looks like it was one hell of a good night of songs.
 
 On a final note, I wonder what the chances are of Seth getting AC/DC to headline one of the nights of Virgin Festival. I know, it's silly, but it's nice wishful thinking!
i dont think its wishful thinking..i am predicting it...they are coming back- supposedly- for the summer..i expect they will want to do BIG shows...virgin will fit right in...its that or nissan...i think they'd prefer virgin by far... live nation is sponsoring these shows in the US (owners of nissan) but doesn't mean a band like ac dc is locked in

I had SO MUCH FUN at this show...  We were in the 100 section (section 119), right beside the stage.  While the crowd looked like a PTA meeting, they rocked like no PTA I've ever seen.   ;)  [Okay, I've never been to a PTA meeting, it's just what I imagine...]  SO glad the show was on a Saturday so we could savor it all and make a big night out of it.
 
 What do you do for money, honey, how do you get your kicks?!?

Glad to hear that my idea isn't silly. I know Seth in the past has said that he doesn't want the festival's headliners to be too lopsided. As in one night are major huge bands and then the next night is something not as huge. With that in mind, I wasn't sure how big of a possibility it was or wasn't to have AC/DC. (Does anyone think it's too early to start a v-fest wishlist thread? haha)
 
 About Nissan Pavilion, I hate that place. I mean it's a nice amphitheater, but getting there sucks so much.
 
 Anyway, regardless where AC/DC plays, I'm glad to hear that they are planning to do a summer tour in the states. A band like them would be much more awesome outdoors than anywhere else. Hell, if they played RFK or something like that I'd go see them there even.

1.00 US$ = 1.52750 AU$
 
 1.00 AU$ = 0.654663 US$
 
 If those rates keep up they might stick around for a while.

saw ac/dc in philadelphia last night, and predictably enough they rawk rawk rawked.  what a fun, visceral and somewhat mindless experience.  wouldn't want all my concerts to be like that, but an occasional guilty pleasure like last night will always be welcome.  our seats were ridiculous: center floor, along the cat-walk.  there was quite a bit of freedom of movement up front, i spent the encore in the third row.  the crowd was typical for philly - so-so with decent but not incredible energy.
 
 curious was the view was like from up front?  here, take a look.  some really good pictures in there, if i do say so myself... although, warning: contains images of a topless aging rocker    :p

wow those are hot pictures for sure!
 
 i had second row center for wilkes barre and i was a little overwhelmed..having never seen them, been listening to them for years and they're like my favorite band and all..
 
 so i was a bit catatonic i think..
 
 which is why seeing them at verizon was special (among other reasons)..being a bit further back i got more of a sense of what was going on and of the band...
 
 i do think the dc crowd was awesome and that was surprising to me.. maybe the fact it was ac dc on a saturday night or whatever..

Jesus crap, I am severely jealous of all you people with your ace seats.  We were definitely up in the nosebleeds.
 
 May I just note that on principle alone, the fact of 20,000 people pumping fists in the air while chanting "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" in unison in the heart of Washington DC is pretty freaking funny.   :D

Angus does not stop working when he's out there.. and they really turn it into a rock and roll show full of great rituals and imagery (Schoolboy uniform, inflatable Rosie, giant bell on Hells Bells, beginning of TNT with the oi oi chant, devil horns on HTH etc).. I think of all the newer bands that just kind of expect you to put up your hands and get excited but they do nothing..They have no sense of creating a show..they hardly ever even solo for pete's sake.. at least half of Whole Lotta Rosie is a screaming Angus solo.. AC DC doesn't really ask you to do anything but they give you a reason to...
 
 At the same time watching videos from other shows and having been at two I now realize how heavily choreographed preplanned it is.. Angus has his moves down to perfection (duckwalk, reverse duckwalk, machine gunning crowd, one handed tapping of guitar strings/fret, etc) and he goes through them much like we'd check off a list or something executing them in pretty much the same order..

I wasn't going to share this one... but its just too good not to.. here's their performance of Whole Lotta Rosie (my favorite AC DC song) on Saturday at Verizon.. I had two security guards right next to me but about halfway into this song once Angus was into his solo I realized I had to film it...

Hutch, i think the other key thing about AC/DC is that they never take themselves too seriously.
 
 Contrast that with the opening band, The Answer, which played perfect, formulaic metal, but was boring as hell.  No sense of humor (unless it was masked by the Northern Irish accent), no showmanship beyond standard metal posturing.
