For those about to ROCK…

Brian Johnson

Thanks to my buddy EJ (Music editor for the News Tribune), I was able to check out AC/DC in their first Tacoma appearance in 7 years.  Promoting their newest release “Black Ice”.

The show was everything you would expect, and I was fortunate to have a real birds eye view of the event.  I got to sit in the press box for the whole show.  The tickets they gave us were in the eighth row – but the way the stage was set up – I was better off in the box.  They played all of the songs I went to hear and kept the new songs (ie songs I didn’t know) to a minimum.  Opening act “The Answer” just plain old sucked. They looked like a parody of a rock band with cliche moves and manufactured excitement as well as the worst sound I have ever heard at a concert.

Here is the set list (Courtesy of EJ – he also gets credit for the picture…sadly I couldn’t go to the photo pit with him)

Hell Ain’t a Bad Place to Be
Back in Black

  1. Looks like it was a great time, but listening to has beens is sometimes sad, like watching Franco or Terry B near the end. I saw Black Sabbath when Van Halen was their opener and even tho they hung for a few more years, they were shot
