AC/DC Wellington 28 January 2010

Despite or maybe because of this show selling out in only three hours after it was announced I was able to get halfprice tickets. I tend to avoid stadium shows because it's not really possible to see the band and there are way too many people.
Missed the first support band, The Checks. Arrived in time for local band Shihad, who supported AC/DC back in 1991 when they were mainly a thrash metal covers band.
Shihad played roughly seven songs and ignored their first two industrial albums preferring material from "The General Electric" and other newer material. The highlight was the poppy rock of "Home Again" being played in front of their hometown audience. Shihad were loud and difficult to see.
AC/DC were louder and big screens made them easier to see. They were great, running through their better known tunes with a few from "Black Ice" that weren't recognized by many. There's still no hiding the fact AC/DC is really a male strip show. Angus Young's striptease to "The Jack" made it obvious to those who never realized before. The band utilize their large stage and props better than most bands due to years of experience. It was a great show although Brian Johnson's gravelly voice was a little off at times and Angus Young's guitar solo seemed to go on forever.
