I didn’t like the tickets I was being offered, hit refresh three times, and lost the opportunity to see AC/DC at Metlife on August 26th, 2015.
Disappointed? I’ve seen them once before, at Madison Square Garden, with my nephew, maybe ten year ago. I loved em as well, I am a big fan of a superb product: a streamlined unerring, unchanging rock and roll machine. Years turn into decades, and forty years later, even the departure of Malcolm Young can’t stop em.
Last year the terrific Rock Or Bust was released and it was a superb product: streamlined, hard rock, flawless in everywhere, it stands a statement of an extreme rock and roll aesthetic, rock form over everything, every single thing: nothing but the thing, a beast of sound that will rock your socks off.
Helling and belling across an an arena, AC/DC are the essence of a huge rock band, a towering power swinging on hells belles from the roof. I will be sorry if I miss em. Brian Johnson is a stellar lead singer, he dictates his pace and he is a joy to watch at any time and he isn’t the only leader of the band. Angus Young is a pixelated stardust rock child. He is Just William.
My problems here is
1 – a wednesday
2 – Metife
3 – lousy seats
4 – for a hundred bucks
5 – and seat 12, right in the middle of the damn row.
still, I may live to regret this one…
ps: i bought a ticket any way!!!
