    Fan reviews:

    By Jim , Killeen, Texas:
    This was the first concert I ever went to. I was 13 at the time. Highway to Hell was just starting to get a lot of airplay on KISW and Live at Budokon was a must have 8-Track. And of course Ted was Ted... I got pretty tuned up prior to ACDC taking the stage and had to go sit in the seating or risk being trampled. I remember a dude that was obviously pretty whacked himself that was video taping the show sans camera. ACDC blew everyone away. Ted recorded Stranglehold for Double Live Gonzo at this show. Good times.

    By John, Seattle Washington U.S.A:
    Show: AC/DC, Cheep Trick, Ted Nugent (Headliner), Seattle Center Coliseum 1978.

    As I recall this show did not go well for AC/DC. The band was not that well known in the U.S at the time and the drunken Ted Nugent fans (not known to be a very open minded bunch to begin with) didn't quite know what to think of the guy jumping around in a schoolboy uniform. After about the 3rd song the crowed started throwing bottles at the stage, but the band pressed on. At one point Angus got on Bon Scott's shoulders and walked into the audience,which I thought was an incredibly gutsy move considering the crowed was not on their side. After the show my friends all grumbled about how "That first band sucked". Less than a year later "Highway To Hell" was released in the U.S and AC/DC became EVERYBODY'S FAVORITE BAND and all us old farts have a great story about how we saw AC/DC get boo'ed off the stage 35 years ago.

    By Keith, Seattle, WA:
    My first arena rock show and a religious experience for me. My true motivator for attending was to see Ted Nugent and I have to admit, at that time I knew AC/DC only in name. They were the opening act and absolutely blew away the Seattle Center Coliseum. As they closed their set, Bon walked Angus through the croud on his sholders- the cord for his guitar must have been 200 feet long. Incredible show. Not often you see a bill like Nugent, Cheap Trick and AC/DC in an evening.

    By Kurt, Seattle:
    I remember AC/DC getting booed. Most of the people around me were dismissing the band as punk, not real popular among the mainstream rockers at the time. I got the feeling AC/DC was getting a kick out of the hostile reception. I hadn't heard of them before but I remember kind of liking them. I believe I described them as psycho-blues at the time.

    By Richard, Portland OR US:
    Saw both nights. Went for Cheap Trick, was and still am a huge fan. Had already seen Nugent, he no longer interested me. Had heard about AC/DC from someone in the know, but unfamiliar with their music. They won over about 25% of the crowd, had 25% boo and about half doing nothing. Floor was packed both nights. I was sick as a dog so one night I was actually sober, which was unheard of in 78. The night I was less sick, I remember how tight AC/DC's stage show was. Bon Scott on Angus' shoulders while they went into the crowd, Angus constant movement, Phil Rudd beating the hell out of the drums. Loved it. Only 2 shows I saw of the band.

    By Ty caudle, Seattle washington king county:
    The concert at the Seattle coliseum on august 30th 1978 was my first concert you guys rocked so happy I got to see bon Scott and all of you I will never forget it thank you.

    By Johnny Mac , Edmomds:
    We were a little bit freaked out by the crazy man in the school boy uniform running all over the stage like a madman! Having never heard of AC/DC we thought they were pretty weird but they rocked really hard. Angus had gone Wireless with his guitar and when he got on Bon Scott's shoulders they passed right through the crowd behind us! Some of the assholes in the crowd were throwing s*** at them. All in all it was a really awesome show. Cheap Trick did a great set on the heels of the live at Budokan. And then terrible Ted came out and did what he does so well! That was the one and only time that I saw AC/DC live even though I remain a huge fan to this day!
