AC/DC played their third November NYC-area show at the Izod Center in NJ last night (11/20). One week earlier it was two nights at Madison Square Garden. Both of those setlists and a lot more pictures from Jersey, below…
AC/DC, which hasn’t toured in eight years, played two shows last week at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
The band still possesses all its members who are most known for being a part of AC/DC: lead singer Brian Johnson, 61, lead guitarist Angus Young, 53, back-up guitarist Malcolm Young, 55, bassist Cliff Williams, 58, and drummer Phil Rudd, 54.
The Answer, an Irish band, started off the night, and was surprisingly enjoyable. The group didn’t have a long set, and was playing to a less-than-half-filled MSG. They have a style very similar to AC/DC, and lead singer Cormac Neeson, who has a striking resemblance to Robert Plant, sounds remarkably like Brian Johnson.
As soon as the lights went off for the main act, a wave of electricity hit the crowd, inducing goose bumps and butterflies across the now-packed arena.
A cartoon was shown on the three big screens around the stage and featured Angus Young powering the engine of a locomotive that was speeding down the tracks, about to hit a blockade. As the train crashed on the screen, an actual train appeared on the stage with flames, sparks and smoke. Led by legendary guitarist Angus Young, the band came out on to the stage to the hit off the new “Black Ice” album, “Rock N’ Roll Train.” [The Daily Collegian]
