Fan reviews:

By Michael Albrecht, :
What a disappointment and what a horrible show ! I read most of the previous reviews and was anticipating a great show but was a part of 1 of the most lackluster performances I've ever seen.
OK...enough of my bull----! I'm lying.......I couldn't help starting this way since all of the previous reviews were stellar. This was my first AC/DC show and it was the most spectacular event I've ever seen in the 36 years I've been on the planet. The gents exhibited extraordinary and genuine energy on this 92 degree night just outside the Windy City. Now, we all know about the classic hits, the pyro-technics, the boobies on and off the screen, the cute montages and the Statue of Angus so I'd like to provide a new review with a different perspective. I'm not trying to re-event the wheel here but simply want to share my initial sighting of the lads from down under.
It was complete with athleticism, professionalism, true fun, special effects and great music which created the biggest and loudest sing-a-long I've ever been a part of and I've seen Elton, Billy Joel and John Mellencamp. And these guys rocked their asses off! I stood in amazement for 2 hours and simply had an awesome time.
First of all, Angus is the hardest working guitarist in rock & roll I've ever seen. He's the blue collar, hard driving, duck walking soul of the band and knows how to please the crowd. I loved the intro to Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution...what a great back and forth he did with us. And that was pretty cool that he wears his wedding ring. I would have passed out trying the things he did or survived only with a shot of oxygen every 20 minutes. He also performed perfect solos during The Jack and Bad Boy Boogie. Lastly, it had to be humanly impossible to play Let There Be Rock and Whole Lotta Rosie back to back. Is he from Mars?
Brian was also in blue collar form reving up the crowd and seemed to enjoy himself the whole night. Not bad for being in his 50's. They all bring it together when they unite musically. Half way through the show my cousin asked me what the hell are they going to play for an encore?.....What's left? The set was the same and the only boos from the crowd came during Safe in NYC which caused the band to wonder why. They are too foreign to realize the competition between the Big Apple and the Windy City....I have a solution....simply insert the city the band is playing in, that evening.....Safe In Chicago....San Antonio...etc.. you get the picture....UFO use to do it for their hit "Lights Out" and it drove the audiences nuts.....OK I'm off my soap box.
During the Jack, 2 women kept rubbing their breasts together and the cameraperson wouldn't leave it alone....thank god....talk about getting a bang for the buck!!!!
The opening act....sorry but I refuse to repeat their name because their singer and the ex-gunner recited every explicative available...need to get their butts to bible school. That wasn't music...it was cussing with guitar accompaniment.

By Bear, :
No doubt nothin' but energy. I've seen the boys 12 times and thought they were at their best. Just one side note. This was my third concert at Tinley Park and It's a nice facility but "THE WORST" place I've ever been to for sound. Lots of reverberation... If a concert will be at two places, one being a three hour drive, I would drive before going to the world.

By Barb, :
What can I add to what everyone else has said? I've been a fan for almost 20 years, but have never attended a concert. What a way to go . . . I won front row seats and back stage passes. The concert would have been awesome from anywhere, but to be high-fived by Brian and actually see the sweat dripping from Angus as he stood just inches away. I still can't wipe the smile off my face.
Well you all know how great the show was. The boys from down under were a real wonder. I can't even say enough positive things. But, what I do want to add is that when I met them backstage (great, great, greatest thrill of my life!), they were happy to be there, down to earth and seemed to really love being with the fans. I got hugs and kisses (whew!) from everyone and they smiled and signed and repeatedly said they hoped everyone enjoyed the show. Are they nuts? How could you not. I will not miss another show near Chicago. In fact, I may try to catch them again before they leave the states. Kick-ass job, boys!

By Mickey Ciokajlo, :
First time I'd seen the band since '91. Great show. Brian is much more animated these days, and he talks, in more relaxed manner, to the crowd in between songs. He seems much more comfortable being the front man than when I first saw them on Fly on the Wall in '85. Great, great show. I was looking forward to hearing Get it Hot, based on the earlier reviews, but Pollution and NYC were nice surprises.

By Tom Johnston, :
Wow, where do you start? The show was amazing. The boys rock as hard as ever. The place was packed & no one went home disappointed. While they sound good on album/cd, AC/DC is one of the best live bands around. With so many great songs, the whole show is one long greatest hits package. From the opening chords of "You Shook Me All Night Long", to the final chords of "For Those About to Rock", this was non-stop dynamite. Along with a blistering temperature of 90,it fit the evening. Speaking of hot, it was good to SEE the local talent, during "The Jack". If you get a chance to see this show, GO, you will be Rocked !! Slash's Snakepit played a good set, with muddled sound. It was good to hear somebody who could actually sing on "Mr. Brownstone".

By Scott, :
Well Here is the real Deal. AC/DC kick major ass as they always do. It was a great show with lots of stage antics. The boys looked and performed great. Are these guys old? It didn't seem like it. Sung a lot of the classics and 3 new ones. Quite a few women showing their boobs. (thanks ladies) the band really enjoyed that. These guys are the greatest rock and roll band ever. Forget that four letter word band (KISS). Slash's Snake pit should never be allowed on the stage again. I can't believe some people were getting into them. It was a big waste of my time. It was a very hot and humid night. This is a outside venue. I walked away deaf and very sweaty. Long live the true kings of rock and roll AC/DC. WE salute you!!!!

By Kyle, :
All I have to say is fucking-a! as with the other reviews, Slash sucked big time as an opener, so it gave me a chance to go get food. T-shirt prices were very high, but oh well. I got the black stiff upper lip, and the tie die satellite blues one. The sound was excellent and the boys were in top form. you shook me all night long was an interesting opener but it kicked ass. From Phil's first hit of the drums, everyone started jumping and banging their heads. all the greats were there: shot down in flames, hell ain't a bad place to be, back in black, thunderstruck, dirty deeds, the jack, etc. brian johnson's first comment was, "shit it's hot Chicago." one point he said "man it's gettin hot" and I was expecting him to go into meltdown, but he went into safe in NYC, which was fan-fucking-tastic. everyone was very into satellite blues, and the showing of tits was very high during the jack. everyone was singing to every song. my throat still hurts.
hell's bells was the best but it was tied with back in black and highway to hell. those cannons at the end of for those about to rock were the loudest I've ever heard. my ears are still ringing from the angus and malcolm and cliff cranking it to 11. and my neck is going to hurt for weeks from all of the headbanging. AC/DC IS THE FUCKING BEST! CAN'T STOP ROCK N ROLL!

By Alan, :
I have been to many concerts in my life but this had to be the best one. Every one was in a great mood and ready to listen to some kick ass rock and roll. If you ever get the opportunity to see this boys in concert do it. Shirts where a little salty the cheapest one was $32. Tinley Park is one of the best stages I have been to other than some jack ass security guard.
