i have seen the Rolling Stones live at football park here in Adelaide, they were rockin the joint pretty good for a bunch of wrinkly old dudes.
but by far the best concert i have ever been to:
AC/DC's concert at Globe Derby Park back in the 80's.
the show was on a horse trotting track to allow massive numbers to attend, and they sure as hell did.
the place was sold out. the place was packed.
even outside people swelled around the fenceline, crushed up against the cyclone mesh to get a glimpse of the most classic rockin routine you'll ever
people started climbinb speaker stacks, stage framework, light stands, you name it purely because it was hot and the place was jam packed to the
people outside the fence started to get rowdy, the fence started rocking back n forth.
one lone cop was there, holding hands out in a "calm down" gesture, yelling "calm down people"
next thing about 25m of 7ft high fence bends over and literally hundreds of people surged towards the copper who turned his back, walked away and
shrugged his shoulders with one of them "aah what the hell" kinda looks on his face.
we leave (took an hr to get out the c/park) some dude wanted to see the concert so bad that he allowed the crowd to upturn his car so everyone could
stand on it for a better view.
sound was awesome
volume could have made your ears bleed if you wasnt a fan of theirs
lighting, act, singing - all unreal.
angus lept onto the crowd back first, the crowd carries him above them, around near front of stage, all the while he's doin his guitar solo.
truely amazing experience, and no concert has ever come anywhere near close to replicating the AC/DC experience.
