    Fan reviews:

    By Bill Ogle, Newport News Va:
    Excellent concert. Sat around row 8 center on the floor. Bon Scott's vocals were awesome. Angus was full of energy, never stopped moving around the stage. KISS-FM played them a lot promoting the concert. They were relatively unknown, but stole the show.
    I remember them playing Dirty Deeds. I hunted down that album, found it as an import from Australia.

    Angus, the little man in his school uniform with shorts blew me away.

    By C. Duarte, Atlanta, GA . USA:
    AC/DC was the opening, opening band on this show. I had already bought the Live Wire album cuz' the local rock station, KISS FM had been playing the song in good rotation for a while. Although I was familiar with the main act - Moxy, I was more interested to see AC/DC.
    The lights dimmed and when the band kicked off it was 'Live Wire' so the bass starts with its eighth note pattern playing and as the band assumed their position on the stage, Angus, everyone noticed was in the same school boy attire as on the cover of the Live Wire album; this was interesting. Angus proceeded to languidly walk around the stage and every so often would stop to lean against the side walls of the facade on the stage. Kind of anti-climatic like but Malcolm started playing the whole chords that are in the beginning of the song and Angus continued to just walk around, and all the while you couldn't help but notice his guitar cord;yellow and really really long. Then when the song kicks into gear with the shorter guitar chords in the form, Angus leaped into action by running around on the stage and letting the rhythm take him wherever he wanted to go and when he became stationary he never stopped moving but continued in time with each song no matter what the tempo was. Angus never stopped until the last note was played and the lights went up.
    For the last 36 years I have told people about this show and until I saw it listed on this site today, I had completely forgotten who else was on this show. The opening,opening band stole the show and the momentum and put an indelible mark on my memory forever.
    Truly one of the great performances I have ever witnessed. I never saw them again until the 'For Those About to Rock Tour',they're still kickin' and I love the songs they write, but I still miss Bon.
    Rock on AC/DC!!!!!!!! - c.duarte

    By R.L., San Antonio, TX, USA:
    The concert commercial played on the radio at that time was Moxy/Rex/ACDC, billed in that order. This implies that ACDC was the opening act. They played the hell out of that commercial too...

    By Teri Coley Adams, Cochran GA:
    I was at this concert with Bill Ogle (see above!) I still have my ticket stub and we were seated in sec B, Row K. Excellent seats. Angus Young blew me away. He never stopped moving and running and jumping, and his guitar playing was overpowering. Bon Scott's vocals were growling and mean and full of attitude. The songs I really remember well are Dog Eat Dog and The Jack. Never heard anything like those two songs. I was transfixed. One of the best bands I've ever seen live. They totally eclipsed Moxy and Rex.
    All I remember about Rex was that Rex Smith could kick higher than any Dallas Cowboy cheerleader.

    By Ralph Martinez, San Antonio, TX. USA :
    1st concert I ever attended. Billing is wrong Moxy headlined, Rex had 2nd billing AC/DC was the opening act. I clearly remember Both Angus & Malcolm had one stack each and both had some florescent letters painted on them. They came out fairly unknown and blew everyone in the place away. Mighty high standard to set for the 1st band I ever saw in concert.

    By Hugh Hanson, Dallas tx:
    One of the best rock shows I ever saw. AC/DC was the opening act. Blew away Moxy the headliner. I remember one of the other bands was called Mother's Finest? I think. When they played "She's got the jack" Bon changed the Jack to the Clap. Cause he heard that's what we call it here so everyone was singing she's got the clap. Near the end of the show Angus got on Bons shoulders and they jumped down into the orchestra pit (Municipal Auditorium had one) and was shaking hands with the people as Angus was jammin' his leads. One of the greatest bands on rock history imo.

    By Fred Kirby, San Antonio, TX:
    This show was actually AC/DC's second show they ever played in the U.S.
    I was fortunate to have seen there first show ever which was in Austin,TX at the Armadillo World Headquarters the night before. We were big Moxy fans and drove up there to see Moxy. I remember it like it was yesterday. I saw the band drive up in a station wagon. My ticket cost $5.50. We were just blown away! Who were these guys? I will never forget Angus walking out wearing that schoolboy outfit? WTF? They opened with Live Wire and then She's Got Balls. The energy of that performance I will never forget. Angus literally drove into the crowd and was carried for as far as his guitar cord would allow him to go. We could not wait for the next night to see them again in SA.
