Beavis and Butthead must be pretty excited between AC/DC and Metallica touring! Maybe they will finally leave their couch!

This is fucking awesome. 3 area dates - hopefully prices aren't nuts.

Gaahhh!!! Xmas came early this year! Wooooo!!!

I can't believe people on this site like this band...they're unbelievably bland and uninteresting. They've been making the same album for like 30 years, and it's kind of sad already.

Posted by Anonymous | September 11, 2008 12:13 PM

^^^ Dude, people on this site like crap like Dan Deacon. ACDC isn't breaking any new ground, but it's still much better than most of the shit the peeps on here dig.

Posted by Anonymous | September 11, 2008 12:31 PM

12:13 -

AC/DC paved the way for most of the garbage that people frequenting this site rave about. Show a little respect for the forefathers, spanky!

Posted by Anonymous | September 11, 2008 1:08 PM

Anon 12:13 - AC/DC may have been making the same album for 30 years, but you know what? It's a really good album.

Posted by Robert | September 11, 2008 1:15 PM

No Anon 12:13, They've been making the same album for 35 years. If it ain't broke don't fix it. If any band today could write an album even close to as good as "Dirty Deeds" or "Back in Black" people might not be so excited. But no one can, so people are.

Personally, I will be there with a huge grin on my face for the entire show. Say what you want about AC/DC but they are the best at what they do and that's why they can still sell out two nights at MSG 35 years into their career. What band coming out these days will be able to do that in 35 years?

Posted by Jojo | September 11, 2008 1:45 PM

If you don't have anything nice to say about AC/DC then I suggest you go sit in the corner behind some white Ray Bans, dial up a Feist song on your iPod, and cry while hugging your knees.

Posted by dave | September 11, 2008 1:48 PM could say she's got it aaaallllll!!!!!!

Sirius satellite radio now has a 24/7 all-AC/DC channel. It's channel 29 -- i.e., it displaced the punk channel. That's fucking hysterical!

Posted by punk is dead | September 17, 2008 4:41 AM

$94+charges per ticket for every seat at the Garden, $89.50+charges each at the Meadowlands.

There are gonna be some pretty pissed off dudes up in the 400s. Looks like this'll be a day-of craigslist kind of show...

Posted by Anonymous | September 17, 2008 9:48 PM

Yes they are about $95 with all the fees here in Detroit as well. I may not be going because of that....sad days...

It was great. (I wish I could be like this when I'm their age) Going back tomorrow night.

Posted by Southside | November 12, 2008 11:47 PM

Addendum for the nonbelievers: Bland and uninteresting? Google Angus Young, the Easybeats, Flash & the Pan, please know your history.

Posted by Southside | November 13, 2008 7:40 AM

Posted by nbflowers | November 13, 2008 12:37 PM

nbflowers do you know what time AC/DC got on last night? I would assume 9-9:15?

Posted by Anonymous | November 13, 2008 12:51 PM

I think they went on around 9 P.M.

Posted by Anonymous | November 13, 2008 12:56 PM

got hooked up with last minute tix on the floor and man can those old dudes rock out. angus young is a sick mofo his solo was insane and well the striptease was a riot too!

Posted by Anonymous | November 13, 2008 12:57 PM

7 Bon songs! 2 Brian songs that aren't from either "Back in Black" or "Black Ice!" 5 new songs! no really, 5 new songs!

the post-"Back in Black" Brian years are sorely underrated, but "Flick of the Switch" is the jam.

Posted by Anonymous | November 13, 2008 1:05 PM

still not getting why people are into this band.

honestly you guys act like they're so important and influential, but who have they influenced besides shitty cock rock bands? yeah, music would suck soo much without this band. what we do if there was no jet, or guns n roses? and their lyrics! about sex and rock and roll..real inventive.

seriously, if you like this band, you are a moron.

and i hate dan deacon too. stop bringing him up whenever someone rags on a band you like.

Posted by Anonymous | November 13, 2008 1:16 PM

Alrighty 1:16 you are go listen to your Deerhunter or whatever the heck you listen to.

Posted by Anonymous | November 13, 2008 1:23 PM

"Nervous Shakedown" would be nice too. in fact I could deal with a whole "Heatseeker"/ "Moneytalks"/ "This House Is On Fire" set.

Posted by Anonymous | November 13, 2008 1:30 PM

1:16 - Go fuck yourself. There might be 4 rock music fans who agree with your opinion on this. They only happen to be one of the most renown rock bands in the entire world, and have been for 30 years.

Posted by Funderburgh | November 13, 2008 3:30 PM

no need for the drama here fellas...
I'm no fan, but 1:16, the fact is that when these guys first started singing about sex and rock n' roll it was in fact inventive.
That being said, they have been making the same album for the last 30-ish years. I'm not saying it's all un-listenable, and that I won't enjoy one song when it comes on a classic rock radio station, but people, at a certain point it is boring when you know there will always be a guitar solo before the last chorus...

Ok guys, just home from my second msg concert (yes, it was the same set list, but tighter and harder than Wednesday.) Before I add my second addendum in two nights, some context: I'm a woman, and I was going to CB's, Max's and the Mudd Club probably before many of you were born.
Now I love reading this site, Belle and Sebastian, Arctic Monkeys, but don't understand 1:16 and 5:07and you who don't get AC/DC and aren't in on the joke. Like the Ramones, AC/DC was/is as much a comic book character as a real band. And they totally rock. So to put in historical perspective: First their was Bang a Gong, that begat Ballroom Blitz, that begat Blitzkrieg Bop and that led to Whole Lotta Rosie. I guess you either like it or not, but if you don't - get off this concert's posting and go listen to Feist.

Posted by Southside | November 13, 2008 11:20 PM

ac/dc is a great band. if you cant agree with that, then i think its time that you leave this planet. that is all

Jesus, they were great Wednesday.

5:07 doesn't listen to Feist and was only on AC/DC's post because they were interested in reading the arguments that were sure to be going on between the 1:16's and 3:30's of the world.

Posted by Anon 5:07 | November 14, 2008 12:09 AM

Everyone knows they don't mix it up. Sometimes you just gotta let go of the hipster cynicism and enjoy 10-15 of the most memorable hard rock songs of all time.

Posted by Anonymous | November 14, 2008 6:03 AM

They fucking crushed it last night. I haven't had that much fun at a show in a while. Top-notch performers. You naysayers are really a bunch of twats who don't deserve to be opining here at all. Oy!!

Posted by Anonymous | November 14, 2008 9:42 AM

2 shows in Madison Square Garden - SOLD OUT.
Between 15 000 and 20 000 people standing up during the whole show and singing each song together with the band.
Can anybody sow me just one of these new rock bands, one single band from the past 10 years that has done anything like this?

Posted by vdim | November 14, 2008 4:38 PM

You tell'em Southside! You rock!

Posted by Farfalla | November 14, 2008 5:12 PM

Thank you 9:42 and vdim. And one thing that my friend and I thought was very interesting, was that they were able to make MSG feel SMALL!!

I don't know if it was how they connected with the audience, or maybe the staging, the projections, the catwalk into the orchestra, but it felt almost like a club. And as vdim said, 20,000 on their feet from the first power chord, and people singing and having a great time with each other. Thank you AC/DC!!!!!!!

Posted by Southside | November 14, 2008 5:26 PM
