    Fan reviews:

    By Vic, Manassas, VA:
    I think about those things in my past that are certified life-changing experiences: this was one of them!

    We went to see Kiss; we were 16 yrs old. The place was sold out. AC/DC was added on the bill at the last minute, no one had ever heard of them. Except us...a buddy had turned us on to "Let There Be Rock" about a month before the show.

    19,000 ppl there and we were probably the only 6 guys that had ever heard of AC/DC...Well...they absolutely BLEW KISS AWAY! I don't think anyone cared about Kiss when they eventually hit the stage, and the people that did were deaf after that start-up band from Australia! You think Angus has energy now??? You should have seen him when he was a teenager!!!! Holy Shit!!! Who ARE these guys?!?!!?!?
    Yep...I'm almost 50 now...a life changing experience...what's my favorite AC/DC song? Whichever one's playing right now!

    By Rob, Glen Burnie, MD (USA):
    AC/DC filled in for Bob Seger (thankfully). I was seated at floor-center, and when they played Whole Lotta Rosie Angus climbed on Bon's shoulders and came right down my row. The old Capital Centre went nuts! Great memory.

    I was there too, dropped some red dragon blotters. Had a floor seat next to the walkway to the right of soundboard. Angus on Bon's shoulders like 6 feet away freekin' shreddin' that Gibson

    By Charles Fredrikson, Lecanto fl:
    I was at that show in 1977. Somebody in Piper had got sick and they said there would be a band and as you walked up and looked at the Marquee: AC-DC okay who the hell are these guys?

    The first two songs you're scratching your head watching this tall skinny guy all over the stage and this little dude in a uniform Falling on the ground as if he's having epileptic seizures? By the third and fourth song you're actually paying attention thinking these guys ain't half-bad? Then Angus Young gets on Bon Scott's shoulders and they head out through the Capital Centre at some point as they came down The outside Isle on the left, my buddy stuck a bong out, Bon took it and took a hit.

    They were there to kick ass and take names and that's exactly what they did. So much so at some point once Kiss had took the stage a chant started "AC/DC AC/DC AC/DC" and Paul Stanley actually said you liked that band huh and the place when freaking nuts. It was a big disappointment the next night when AC/DC wasn't there and Piper showed up the original opening act.

    Needless to say the local head shops penguin feather Rainbow Tree did not have any AC/DC albums or cassettes / 8 tracks. They did within a couple weeks and couldn't keep them in stock all from that show.

    I have never seen another band since then who worked as hard as they did to get attention, or wrote the kind of songs and delivered them the way they did with Bon Scott. The only show I've ever seen that's come close since that night was Hank Williams Junior a week before Christmas at a place called Rock Crusher Canyon a few years ago in Crystal River Florida that old man put on a show that night. The only reason I brought that up It's because I do believe Bon Scott wherever he's at would smile thinking I'd hang out with Hank And drink a little Kentucky bourbon.

    Kind of strange at 62 years old I'm still talking about a show with a band who wasn't even supposed to be there back in 1977 that alone should tell you how good it was a once-in-a-lifetime event That can't be duplicated you had to be there and thank God I was.

    By Charles Fredrikson, USA:
    I'm 62 years old and I was at that Monday night show when somebody got sick in Piper and AC/DC was on the Marquee as you went up to the capital Center in little letters under KISS?
    Okay who the hell were these guy doesn't matter you just get drunk and wasted during the opening Act ?
    The first couple songs This tall guy Is all over the stage And this little dude In a uniform is falling on the ground acting like he's having epileptic seizures ?
    By the third and fourth song you start watching them more and more thinking these guys are pretty freaking good.
    Then Angus gets on Bon's shoulders and they head out through the capital Centre my buddy actually stuck a bong out and Bon grabbed it and took hit ?
    Never seen nothing like that in my life at any concert I've ever been to they were there to kick ass and take names and they did ?
    Once Kiss took the stage at some point the whole Capital Center started chanting AC/DC AC/DC and Paul Stanley said you liked that Band and the place went fucking nuts.
    I had tickets for both nights Monday and Tuesday and I had tickets Thursday and Friday for Aerosmith and Golden Earring ?
    And was really disappointed when Piper showed up on Tuesday night.
    I ran to a local penguin feather in Northern Virginia the next day and they didn't even know who AC/DC was nobody had their albums or 8 tracks /cassettes at that time.
    They did with in a couple weeks though and they couldn't keep them in stock all from them playing at the Capitol Center.
    Only one show in all my years has ever come close to that And that was Hank Williams in 2010 at a place called Rock Crusher Canyon Crystal River Florida that old man put on a hell of a show that night.
    Life is nothing but a show but a good show is hard to find and few and far between an in 2021 I'm still talking about 1977 on a Monday night watching these guys In a band named AC/DC.
    The only thing I can say good about the KISS concert the next night was being able to boo Piper.
