    Fan reviews:

    By Ron Vance, Columbus, OH:
    This isn't a review but a re-collection. This was my first concert I attended. I was 12 years old and went with my 2 older brothers and their friends. We had 5th row seats, stage right, on the aisle. This was when Bon used to carry Angus through the audience on his shoulders. My oldest brother, Russ, lifted me up when they went by and I reached and touched Bon! How exciting!! My first show AND a brush with greatness! Very, very cool. I will send a review from the local newspaper and the ticket stub soon.
    Thanks for listening.

    Cheap Trick was the opener for this one. What a show.

    By Joe Woyan, Columbus, Ohio USA:
    I remember I did not have a ticket to the concert, I bought one outside the hall, my friends we're upset because I had a better seat. I remember standing on the seat watching when security hitting on back on legs with a night stick, did not ask, I guess wanting to sit down, lol. I know I have a copy of the concert that was on Q-FM did a live broadcast, now a bootleg. I have photos of the concert, mainly black and white shots, some color photos. I will have to look for the photos so I can post on this site. I may look into making 8x10's to sell. Great concert, Cheap Trick did a kick ass job as the opening band.

    By Mike , columbus ohio:
    I was 15 and this will go down as one of the best concerts of my life. The audience stormed the orchestra pit and Bon pleaded with the people to get out. He said it could collapse. "you'll get hurt man you'll get hurt" he said. House lights went up Bon then said "turn the fucking lights OFF" Cops on stage and the whole nine yards. Once things calmed down The Lads ripped in to "Dog eat Dog" the whole place went nuts again. I have been a fan for life. Last saw Black Ice show with my 2 grown children in Columbus in 08. Keep rockin Lads

    Cheap Trick opened and hard and the security thought they had everything under control The lights went down and the crowd surged to the railing over and the orchestra pit in front of a curved stage was filled with mic stands as it was live broadcast 3dbsong about 8 of us went over the rail in to the pit and our faces at Bon's feet. The security could not get to the pit so they shotbus with streams of mace from both sides of the stage. We ducked as best we could Bon signaled to Angus and Angus chased the cops away with his guitar poking the security with rhythm and never missing a lick the cops stopped a radio guy managed to crawl in with us and said we could stay if we did not touch the mics. We got to enjoy the entire show and when it was over the big tall security guard recognizes me but I slipped past I had worked as an Usher at vets when I turned 16 so I got to see many shows like Rush back to back etc. You usher until the lights go down and then you get yo watch the show. The AC/DC show was by one of my top shows for pure raw energy fun and hard core rock and roll. Note a few other shows at the venue were Aerosmith, and Van Halen, Montrose, Journey, Robin Trower, Rush and many others but when AC/DC ended that entire crowd floated oht satisfied and satiated. I also saw them at Agora Ballroom cols Ohio in 77 but that is for another time. Just found this site and have seen AC/DC all over and have some cool stories btw we hung out with them at a campus oarty at osu too.

    That tour was great. Caught them Sept. 10th 1978 @ Vets Memorial Auditorium Columbus Ohio, The show was like a riot in progress, the audience was going nut's, they had to turn on the house lights after almost every song to try to get the audience to settle down (The band was the absolute hottest thing on the planet in my area at the time). I'll never forget the sight of Angus up close, snot a flyin and knees a bleedin. We were standing right up front and at one point this giant biker dude just picked up my friend and tossed him on stage right in the middle of "Gone Shootin". My buddy grabbed Bon's mike and yelled "Hello Columbus" into it. He got the stink eye from Bon and jumped back into the crowd. I've heard heard quite a few "grey area" releases of this show (It was broadcast live on QFM 96) and in all of them my friend can clearly be heard yelling into the mike. Awesome memories this brings back.
