Melbourne 1988 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the National Tennis Center, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia; February 8, 1988. Very good soundboard.

Rock ‘n’ Roll, hard rock and even considered one of the pioneers of heavy metal, the Australian AD/DC also have the kind of rockers that everyone can sing along to. (Actually brothers Malcolm, Angus and George Young were born in Glasgow, Scotland.)

According to the wikipedia, the Blow Up Your Video tour would be the last to feature drummer Simon Wright, before being replaced by Chris Slade in 1989. (Wright went on to join Dio.) The tour also saw Malcolm Young step out of part of it due to an alcohol problem. During this period, he was replaced by his nephew, Stevie Young. This was AC/DC’s last tour and studio album during the 1980s, and it put them back in the limelight after a few tepid years of commercial woes with their albums.

Every show on the North American leg of the tour began with a heatseeking missile pod rising up into the stage; Angus Young would then jump out of the missile pod and the band would open with the song “Heatseeker”.

Needless to say, a rousing fine time for all.

Thanks to RiffRaff77 who shared the tracks on Dime, and to the person who shared the artwork on the net. RiffRaff77 noted: “Incomplete show, missing Jailbreak, The Jack and Hells Bells.”

  8. Thank you so very much!

    This is quite an overlooked period in AC/DC history. I have been looking for live versions of HEAT SEEKER and WHO MADE WHO for some time now.

    I went to college in Wichita, KS. I was all set to see them in concert in late July of 88 when I had a chance to go see the Soviet Union…. so I went back to the USSR and I missed ACCADACCA. It was the first tour since “If You Want Blood” that I missed. (Yes, I got to see Bon Twice!)

    Anyway, Thank you so very much
