    Fan reviews:

    By Greg Moz, Seattle, washington usa:
    Wow! I did not know who opening act ac/dc and Angus Young where before this show. I did after. They did play the jack and who Knows what Else. We booed Cheap Trick. Ted Nugent was fantastic. He was suffern from cat scatch fever. Nugent was the head liner. Keep rockin ac/dc!

    By Kevin Munro, Auburn, WA USA:
    I was there. Funny story about that show. Seattle hadn't heard of them and the crowd started booing and throwing stuff at the stage. Finally, Ted Nugent came out and said the band is awesome, they'll be huge soon and if anything more is thrown at the stage the rest of the show would be cancelled. The crowd chilled out immediately.

    By Tom Etchey, Kenmore, WA/USA:
    It's been over 35 years since that concert, but I remember it above all other concerts I ever attended. I too, had not heard about AC/DC prior to that show, but was completely blown away by them. To me, they stole the show from Cheap Trick and Ted. I still remember Bon Scott carrying Angus on his shoulders through the crowd on the floor.

    Great show!!

    By Patricia, Kent Wa :
    I was 17 and myself and a friend had backstage passes. Honestly was mainly there to see Cheap Trick , but I had heard of AC/DC, heard of Angus Young and somehow had heard some AC/DC songs... Anyhow I was the polar opposite of a groupie, I just wondered around eating the free food and drink and checking out what happened backstage at a big concert.

    Out of all the members of the 3 bands I only ended up talking to Malcolm and Angus. We somehow ended up in a little alcove area behind the stage. Malcolm was standing a couple feet in front of me and Angus to my right. I wish I could remember more of what we talked about, but I'm sure my dweebness was shining thru. The only thing, for some reason, I can remember clearly is at one point I said something to the effect of how good they were and they were gonna be huge. Malcolm mumbled something and Angus said to me in that accent "Yeah what it is, he stutters sometimes" And then Angus said something I can only remember as having a positive vibe. Angus had this calm energy, if that makes sense.

    It was a very, very small thing. Only lasted a few minutes. It was kinda cool, but didn't mean that much to me at the time or for many years.

    I didn't meet Bon Scott but I took a picture of him, from the side albeit, walking to the stage wearing that denim vest and holding his elbows out, as he did. Then a security guard put an end to me getting more backstage pics. I still have that pic along with a few taken from right up against the stage.

    Now I do appreciate that "little" experience much more. I can still picture how young they looked. And yes the concert was electric and so very good and a one of a kind, especially looking back. In my opinion both Cheap Trick and AC/DC out did Ted what's his name.

    By Patricia, Kent Wa :
    Wow ! Reading the other reviews brought back the booing to me. It pissed me off and surprised me. Also don't mean to insult Ted Nugent fans. He did rock and I like a couple of his songs. I just wasn't into his self centered Tarzan thing. Thanks for dislodging that from my brain!

    By Kim Walters, Seattle Washington USA:
    This was my first concert of many in Seattle and it still is my absolute best. Angus and Bon, Ted and CheapTrick Rocked!! Best of times in the 70s,80s!!

    By David Goodson,
    I was there. I still have the tour program however it is more of a Ted Nugent item. As far as AC/DC goes I have seen them at least half a dozen times but only once with Bon. The show was basically the same set as you can see on the Live at the Apollo in Scotland on YouTube. Of course they rocked! Cheap Trick rocked! The Nuge rocked! Too bad Ted went insane. I saw dozens of concerts back in the day but two things stood out 42 years later: Angus Young opening with a blistering version of Riff Raff which would be an encore for any other band. There were more girls at this concert than any rock concert (or anything) packed into one room than I've ever seen in my life and that includes Peter Frampton at the King Dome the same year. I mean it was wall to wall women. I don't know if it was the Nuge or Robin Zander but they were everywhere!
