    Fan reviews:

    By Tony, Winnipeg,Canada:
    Could not wait to see the concert as I was an AC/DC fan from the first album I heard, high voltage. The Band was on time and they played to perfection. Angus never stopped from doing his Chuck Berry hop all night and Bon's voice was great. The whole band did a fantastic concert, I was a very happy fan. They didn't disappoint, as the other band did. Soon as they started you knew there was something wrong, and we left. But was so Happy to have heard AC/DC.

    By Jim, Winnipeg:
    I was at this 1st AC/DC concert in Winnipeg in 1978 and this was before Bon Scott died, they were backing up Aerosmith and they literally blew them away.

    By the end of their set, Angus's knees were covered in blood from sliding around the stage, with his trademark shorts on.

    When Aerosmith came on (apparently Steven Tyler had a throat infection) they sounded horrible and all of the fans started chanting "We want AC/DC, we want AC/DC".

    Felt sorry for Aerosmith but AC/DC was just absolutely electric and they didn't even have the full set of amps and speakers working for them as most backup bands don't have.

    By Gene Tobin, Grande Prairie, Alberta:
    I was still 17 that warm July night in 1978, 13 days from my 18th birthday and totally agree with previous reviews, AC/DC may have been introduced as the backup band, but nothing could be further from the truth as they blew the roof of the joint (Winnipeg Arena).

    Bon Scott's voice was on-point all night, while Agnus's trade mark antics, hopping, jumping and guitar were spell-binding and constant! Oh how they entertained the audience and they never let up the entire show!

    'We want AC/DC" indeed!! Unfortunately, on that night, Aerosmith were a distant second and not even on the same playing field. But AC/DC alone were truly worth the fare.

    Fact is, I am truly honored to have been there and a saw Bon live, before the release of Highway to Hell the next year, July 1979 and his untimely death early in 1980. Awesome concert!
