“Back In Black” and “Highway To Hell” sound great blasting from a radio. But there’s nothing like seeing AC/DC crank out their hits on stage. After three decades of shaking crowds all night long, Angus and company still have the passion needed to clobber an audience with their hard rock attack. Yep, their current Black Ice World tour is a must for long time fans.
What could be heavier? Well, for two nights, in Boston and New York, AC/DC has invited the one and only Anvil to open for them. The veteran metal band is all the rage right now thanks to their critically-acclaimed documentary, Anvil! The Story of Anvil, which depicts the rough road the guys have traveled and the optimism they still sustain. For Anvil, sharing the stage with AC/DC is like a dream come true.
