It almost seems that AC/DC have been around forever. The Australian rockers have been at it since 1973. Brian Johnson, Angus Young, Malcolm Young, Cliff Williams and Phil Rudd are the members of the band. After criss-crossing the globe for over 20 months and playing to over 5 million people their Black Ice World Tour came to a close in Bilbao, Spain on the 28th of June last year.
The Black Ice World Tour took the band to 108 cities in over 28 countries. AC/DC released a live DVD of one of their 2–4 December, 2009 concerts that took place at Estadio Antonio Vespucio Liberti in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The DVD / Blue Ray Disc was released in May 2011 as AC/DC – Liver At River Plate 2009. The recording of the concert required the use of 32 HD cameras. It was directed by David Mallet and produced by Rocky Oldham. AC/DC have become renowned for their live performances. Having seen a few clips from this DVD I would say that Live at River Plate showcases this perfectly (in my opinion). One would not say that Angus Young is closing in on his 60s when one sees him moving around in his schoolboy outfit. These boys keep doing what they’ve always been doing, “Sticking it to the Man!”.
To give you an idea of how cool Live at River Plate 2009 is, this video for Thunderstruck was released by AC/DC on Vevo to give their fans a taste of the DVD:
