Two tickets to AC/DC- WAAAY more than back in my day!


Parking- $10.00?!?!?!?! More than back in my day.


T-Shirt- Waaay more than back in my day...

Watching my 14 yr. old son thoroughly enjoy his day- You better believe that's priceless.

Ian has loved AC/DC for years. The show was a bit expensive, but I pulled some extra shifts and made a couple of good sales last week. I figured that was a windfall that needed to be properly applied...

As to the show; well, they gave us 2+ hours of music. There stuff is pretty basic hard rock, which they still do quite well. The stage set was over the top; mere words cannot describe it. I can only say we had a Whole Lotta Rosie!!!!!

Angus is still a manic guitar slinger, spitting out lightning fast runs while duckwalking, flopping on the floor, bounding into the air at the drummer.

Brian Johnson's voice is beginning to show a bit of age; His concession was to growl some parts, but coming back for a songs' signature vocal shrieks like he was still 20!

I'd say we got our money's worth, and like I said, the look on my son's face was beyond priceless .

Glad you and Ian had such a great time together and that he was so happy. That's what it's all about.

I've only seen AC/DC once, back in '77 with Bon. I regret I haven't seen them since. They aren't Rock and Roll Hall of Famers for nothing.

Henry, I envy you that you and your boy can do stuff like that together. My girls don't appreciate my music. I think I have convinced my family to come to Macon with me on November 7 for the Tommy Talton/Jimmy Hall/Randall Bramblett show. I want them to experience something like that with me. Maybe it will turn them on and they'll "get" why I love it so much.

Rock on bro. Hug Maggie for me.

Too cool, Henry! You just gave Ian a wonderful memory that he will carry throughout his life. That's what it's all about, this parenthood thing.

Congratulations. It is great that you had that special time together. I can't imagine my father taking me to a rock concert when I was a kid!

LOL...... Yeah edit my post above ...... My mom & dad would have never went near the Municipal in Nashville that night in 79' ......

Hey BDOB, the girls might come around later in life ......

I go to shows now with my dad that I wouldn't have when I was younger [ country ]

He still wouldn't go for the AC/DC though......

Sounds like a great time. I saw them a couple of times in the mid eighties and they were awesome.

Saw AC/DC a few times when we were kids. My own kids never got into them but our daughter goes to at least one ABB show with us every year(again, sad that I can't say to the Beacon, anymore) and my son has gone to a few Rush and Yes concerts with us over the years.

My Mom took me to see Tommy James and the Shondells.

Glad you and your son had such a good time.
