    Fan reviews:

    By Tim parson, Bowling green, KY:
    I was at this concert. Made the 1 hour drive from Tell City, Indiana with a group of good friends. AC DC was huge in Tell City at the time (and Judas Priest). You say this was at, "Mesker Field", I have never heard of Mesker Field.

    This concert was held inside of a very small Auditorium with two levels. The ground level was devoid of seats and was packed with standing people,the upper level where I was, was seats only, and my seat was right on the edge of the balcony so I had an excellent view of the show.

    Bon Scott had suffered some injury prior to this show and was carried to a stool on stage where he sang without standing much if at all for the whole show. I do remember him drinking a bottle of something during the show.

    I also remember watching one of the guitarists being carried on the shoulders of someone, through the crowd standing on the lower level.

    The music was incredible, the atmosphere truly electric. There were some encores. As good as any concert I have ever seen.

    I was there on the floor, I was ruined from that point on!! I had never seen anything so badass, I am still their biggest fan, and they are my fav band ever!!

    By Stuart Englert, United States:
    I too attended the AC/DC concert in Evansville in 1978. Tim is right. The show wasn't at Mesker Field; it was at the downtown Evansville Coliseum, moved inside because of forecast stormy weather as I recall. Tickets were $7.50. I was on the right-hand side of the stage. The music was primal and loud, thundering across the pulsing crowd. Guitarist Angus Young sat atop a big roadie's shoulders playing while the roadie walked through the middle of the audience. It was wild. My ears hummed for hours after the music stopped. The energy and sounds are vivid in my mind.

    By Chris Vaughn, Burna Ky.:
    I was at this concert also. I won't ever forget them carrying Angus while they rocked!! I was near the stage and had a big time.

    By Steven Uhde, Rockport, Indiana USA:
    This was my first AC/DC live show. I was 16 at the time, with a brand new driver’s license. My best friend couldn’t attend because his parents busted him the night before. I don’t ever recall this show being scheduled for Mesker Amphitheater, and Veteran’s Memorial Colosseum was small, intimate and loud. I chose front row center balcony, the best seat in the house.
    I don’t see it mentioned in other comments, but this Powerage Tour stop had an opening act few had heard of in support of their first album, Molly Hatchet.
    To date still one of the best nights of live music I’ve witnessed.
