Twenty-two years after first falling for them, I saw AC/DC on Tuesday night, and they didn’t disappoint. Brilliant and funny, they put on an amazing show, and while they did play a few songs off the new album, Black Ice, it was mainly an impeccable greatest hits set (although I would have included ‘What’s next to the Moon’, and ‘Rock and Roll ain’t noise pollution’). The surprisingly camp Brian Johnson worked the crowd, Malcolm, Cliff Williams and Phil Rudd kept it tight, not missing a beat or note all night, and Angus was just pure sweaty genius, a genuinely amazing thing to see in the flesh – a cross between Chuck Berry and James Brown!
