AC/DC Shake Fans All Night Long in New Jersey
Little red lights flashed all over the packed Metlife Stadium in New Jersey as thousands of fans donned devil horns that lit up, all in celebration of AC/DC.
The legendary rockers took hold of the stage and kicked off the night with fireworks and their title track “Rock or Bust” of their latest album right into a favorite, “Shoot to Thrill.” Fans were “Thunderstruck” as they sang "Aaah ahh ah ahhh" which echoed throughout the stadium.
Frontman Brian Johnson was all smiles and his voice was flawless as he belted out other anthems like “High Voltage” and “Hells Bells.” Guitarist Angus Young was dressed in his notable schoolboy uniform but layers of the outfit were stripped away as the night progressed. Eventually his tie came off during “Sin City” and he shredded his guitar with it. Young’s legs moved as he swiftly made his way to every part of the stage.
“Oy, Oy, Oy!” boomed throughout the venue as fans shouted out “T.N.T” and other well-known tunes, such as “You Shook Me All Night Long” and “Let There Be Rock,” the latter of which included an amazingly blistering solo by Young. The sweat-soaked guitarist wasn’t done just quite yet!
AC/DC’s encore soared with “Highway to Hell” and ended with “For Those About to Rock (We Salute You).” Their 20-song setlist was solid from top to bottom.
The energy and vitality of both Young and Johnson are unmatched as they continue to wow their longtime fans and teach the newer generation what rock 'n' roll is all about. AC/DC you have rocked our brains out, and for that, we salute you!
Opening band Vintage Trouble have a bluesy rock vibe that pays homage to the ones that came before them and frontman Ty Taylor is this generation’s James Brown. Taylor, spun, twirled and crowdsurfed as his cool, calm and collected bandmates kept the groove steady.
