    I don't really know how big that band is, but the Corner Hotel's probably the right sized venue. I've seen the likes of SYL and Nightwish there.

    Anyone going to see AC/DC? I saw them last night at Etihad Stadium. Very good show. They're one of those bands I've long wanted to see, even if I don't listen to them much. It's pretty much the Angus and Brian show, with the others very much taking a backseat. It must kick arse to be a part of that band though.

    Did Angus do his 15-minute long guitar solo-cum-striptease in the middle of "Let There Be Rock"? Does he still do that? It was embarassing then and would be triply so now. I don't care what anyone says about it, when I saw them in 1988 I almost walked out and went to the bar when they got to that part of the show. One of the most boring and self-indulgent things I'd ever seen.

    He did do quite a long solo at some stage, but I can't remember if it was during a song or not. Also stripped off half way through the show. He's actually looking pretty fit for an old bloke!

    They still do the 17 minute version of Let there Be Rock and the striptease but the striptease is in a different song about half way through the set. Pretty sure it's never been during LtBR.

    Probably not. My memory is a bit hazy of actually which song it's in. CAn't say I've ever been a fan of that aspect of their show.

    I saw AC/DC in Auckland the other week. I'm not a big fan, but I had to see them once. Must've been the most people I've ever seen in one place. After hearing so much about their show, it was kinda surreal to actually be there.

    Angus did his striptease during The Jack. I'm not sure what to think about it... I wouldn't say it was boring, not as boring as the support bands at least. Everyone's expecting him to do it, so the vast majority would be disappointed if he didn't. No use going to the bar while he did it because the bar closed 15 minutes before the start of AC/DC's set.

    Am I the only one who prefers the lyrics to that song as they were recorded on the "T.N.T" album? The alternative ones (which are the original lyrics anyway, the label just wouldn't let them use them) are nowhere near as entertaining.

    Regardless, going to the Saturday night show, should be a lot of fun.

    The striptease is quite obviously a piss take and tongue n cheek. I have no problems with it.

    Will be there Saturday night also :)

    T.N.T lyrics basically use playing cards to sing about a girl with STD's, while the original isnt so subtle

    Original

    But how was I to know that she had been there before
    She told me she was a virgin
    She was number nine, ninety-nine on the clinical list
    And I fell in love with the dirty little bitch
    She's got the Jack


    TNT

    But how was I to know
    That she'd been dealt with before
    Said she'd never had a Full House
    But I should have known
    From the tattoo on her left leg
    And the garter on her right
    She'd have the card to bring me down
    If she played it right
