AC/DC – Stiff Upper Lip Live
Well this was a no-brainer. I picked it up at work for next to nothing, and knew exactly what I was getting. Rock fucking on!
They’ve still got it (of course), and the set list is great. Shows how deep your catalogue is when you drop Shook Me All Night Long at track 2…
The crowd was well into it, and the sound is good. I could have done with fewer camera cuts. It felt a bit like watching a pong pong ball quickly bouncing around the stadium, so you’d just get focussed on something and then it would zap to something else. Too many quick cuts.
But the rock prevailed, and the mighty AC/DC tore down the fuckin’ house. My daughter (she’s 5) sat on my lap for the first few tracks and, when I asked her if she liked this kind of music, she turned to me with a huge genuine smile, gave me the metal horns and said “YEAHHHHHH!” That’s Daddy’s girl! My son also asked me to scan ahead to Back In Black (his fave, ‘cos Daddy can play it on guitar), and they both danced around like loons. Ah, kids…
The big blow-out For Those About To Rock… was fun, and then a quick and dirty encore of Shot Down In Flames was a sweet encore. Cool DVD.
