    Fan reviews:

    By Gregg Findley, Federal Way, WA / USA:
    I remember going to see Aerosmith in concert as an impressionable 17 year-old. The biggest impression made was by a little known band called AC/DC that also performed that night. Bon Scott's raw vocal style and Angus Young's incredible guitar work that epitomized the term "guitar god" was all this kid needed to become a lifelong fan. The band that I went to see that evening was a big disappointment,
    however I discovered another group that I have seen several times live and still listen to daily. Thank you AC/DC and thank you Billings.

    By Dan Koffler, Havre, Montana, USA:
    It was either the first or second concert I ever went to. We drove from Lewistown, the town where I was born, and were extremely fired up about seeing Aerosmith. I was one day shy of 17. When AC/DC came on we were blown away with the energy and the spectacle. It's the first time I'd seen anyone with a FM wireless Guitar and was in a state of bliss when they hauled Angus Young around the pit while he jammed. It still makes the hair on my neck stand up thinking of it. Aerosmith isn't worth mentioning, in comparison. The times of our lives can be so vibrant and moving in our memories, even 44 years later.

    By AL Big Hair, Hardin, Montana USA:
    I remember I was 16 years old AC/DC stoked the show, they were awesome, they rock roll the place the crowd love it and wanted more but they had to stop, so Aerosmith can play, the people kept saying AC/DC and AEROSMITH didn’t like it Steven Tyler gave the crowd the middle finger lmao right on

    By Bill McPherson, Cody, Wyoming:
    In high school we would travel 300 miles on many occasions to see concerts at the Metra in Billings. When my friends and I heard that Aerosmith was playing in July 1978 we were SO excited because they were the ultimate rock band in our eyes. I remember we hadn't even heard of AC/DC and we were so focused on Aerosmith that we didn't even bother becoming familiar with AC/DC by listening to any of their music in the couple months leading up to the concert. I was absolutely hooked from the moment Angus bound on stage in his school boy uniform and started bobbing his head and duck-walking back and forth across the stage. We were front row and I will never forget during the Sin City solo when Angus threw himself on the floor right in front of us and started spinning himself in circles. I really think that tour is when AC/DC became a household name. Sadly, even though we were HUGE Aerosmith fans I have always admitted that AC/DC absolutely hands-down kicked Aerosmith's ass that night!

    By Brooks Clark, Seattle, Wa..:
    My memories of this show are dead on from the other reviews. I consider Billings to be my hometown, and I was 16 at the time of this show. I was a HUUUUGE Aerosmith fan at the time and still am, while I was just becoming dimly aware of AC/DC at this time.

    Well, I've always said of this show, that I can attest to seeing the massively drugged out version of Aerosmith! Man, Joe Perry was so fucked up, that by the time they got around to the encore, he looked like he didn't even know what a guitar was, much less being able to play it. There's even a Circus magazine article where the guys in the 'Smith let loose as Billings being the worst place they've ever been after doing that show. Well, having also lived in Boston, I get that perspective!

    Anyway, I also say of this show to people that I got to see a young, hungry Bon Scott lead AC/DC just tear the place up. GAWD they were so good. They didn't let the fact that they had set foot in some remote, cow-pied encrusted prairie town in the middle of nowhere slow them down one bit. They were out for blood. All in all, one of the coolest shows I saw in the 70's!
