    Fan reviews:

    By Jim Wahlgren, Tempe Arizona:
    We drove from Sandwich IL to the show, general admission so we waited in the alley outside to get in. Angus got on Bon's shoulders and went from balcony to balcony during The Jack, Shot Down in Flames and Let There Be Rock just rocked. Pat Travers Band with his Boom Boom Out Go The Lights, and Molly Hatchett's Flirtin with Disaster were both kick ass warm up bands. Still the All Time Best Concert I've ever been to. With the Brawlroom as we called it only holding 5500 people there was not a bad seat in the house. AC/DC was never the same with Brian Johnson. Rock-On

    By Scott "Chopper" Smith, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA:
    When I was in high school my best friend and I listened to AC/DC constantly, especially "Let There Be Rock" and "If You Want Blood (Live)" during the summer of 1979. When my friends older brother went to Chicago to see Triumph play at the Aragon Ballroom in August, he got tickets for AC/DC in October. He ended up not being able to go and gave my friend the tickets, so we skipped school for that Friday and drove 6 hours down to Chicago for the show. It was Pat Travers and Molly Hatchet opening, who were good too. But the AC/DC show blew the roof off of the place! We had a blast, and got to hear the new "Highway to Hell" songs just a few weeks after the album came out! Bon and Angus were having a blast, and you could tell. One of the best shows of my life!

    By Dean Paskey, Naples, FL USA:
    I have seen many shows in my day, but this ranked the sickest show of all time. I was 16 at the time, and me and my buddy waited out in the alley for hours that cool cloudy day in October to get inside. The crowd was absolutely insane, fights, fires, etc. you name it. We were on the main floor about 30 rows back for Molly Hatchet, Pat Travers and then AC/DC. Bon, Angus, Mal, Cliff, and Phil were all in there prime and tore the fucking roof off the place! It was also the loudest concert I'd ever attended. I couldn't hear right for a few days! It was only a few months later when we lost Bon Scott. During "The Jack" Angus hopped on Bon's shoulders and made their way through the crowd being showered in beer and pelted with debris and god what knows what else. For any AC/DC fan, this was truly an epic experience you just could not describe. I wish I could go back and relive it all over again. AC/DC...They were the best!!

    By Mark Brown, Glasgow, Kentucky:
    I was 15 and rode in the back of a pickup truck 35 miles to the Aragon. General admission for 5000 eager fans. It was a mob scene trying to get in. Once inside most of the seats were already taken so we ended up in the back of the main floor. No problem since it was such a small venue. Also worked out well when Angus got on Bon's shoulders and did a guitar solo around the perimeter of the crowd. They passed within 6 feet of me and my buddies. Such an amazing show from start to finish. I wish it had been recorded. I had no idea of how lucky I was to be seeing a show that so many fans would never get to experience. Now I know. Best $8 I ever spent.

    By Tom Hareas, St Petersburg, Florida:
    This was my 2nd show seeing AC/DC (1st was Comiskey Park 1978; Incredible show!) I was 16, the venue was perfect size, we waited in the alley in line before going in, craziness in alley and adjacent garage, you could hear them warming up, it was loud, just as we needed it to be! The raw hard energy of the band and the perfect songs with direct lyrics delivered by my favorite lead singer, Bon delivered each song like it would be his last, confident and always laughing and smirking through each song, probably as he lived them which made the band more real to me, they connected with our generation who wanted this type of rock music. I was blown away when they came off the stage with Angus on Bon’s shoulders just jamming away, they got within a few feet of were I was on the ground floor, I saw Angus’ remote device pack that allowed him to play off the stage without a chord to not limit his reach, it was so different for the times, their sweat was flying, they just kept going, the energy was incredible.

    I had been a fan of the band when I first heard a few of their songs in 1976 and since then I have been hooked. Another thing that was personal to me is that my Dad owned the restaurant next door, I think it was called Pearsons(?) adjacent to the Aragon Ballroom in the 1960’s so I grew up as a kid hearing from my parents that the Aragon Ballroom is where all the named swing bands, big orchestra bands played for ballroom dances where they would often go as a couple, if only they knew how it was the night I was there, complete cultural contrast, and of course I couldn’t tell them as that would be the last rock concert for me. I think about this concert often as it surely stands the test of time!
