Nitehawk’s MUSIC DRIVEN presents a 35mm screening of AC/DC’s last tour with Bon Scott: AC/DC: LET THERE BE ROCK.
Afterparty in Lo-Res featuring DJ Blurry Murray spinning big, bad, 70s rock on vinyl.
AC/DC live in Paris at what was arguably the height of their powers in December 1979. Following a format similar to Led Zeppelin’s The Song Remains the Same – concert footage with some interview material and fantasy/filmed sequences interspersed – this amazing movie record of AC/DC’s last tour with Bon Scott is simple, no holds barred, balls to the wall rock and roll. The group can literally do no wrong as they plow through the following set list:
Shot Down in Flames
Hell Ain’t a Bad Place to Be
Walk All Over You
Bad Boy Boogie
Highway to Hell
Girls Got Rhythm
Whole Lotta Rosie
Let There Be Rock
Along the way, we hear about the songwriting process, playing live, and living the rock star dream. It’s all so very drunken and delightful.
