Thanks for the heads up  ....   when AC/DC first came out, I didn't pay much attention to 'em.    I think I'd like to see 'em now.

OK  ...   How does this work?    I went out and looked on the secondary market (Verizon CTR claims not to have any) and prices are still high  ...   side stage in the 400s is about $130.    When do prices start coming down (or do they)?    What is the recommendation of the ticket savvy posters for AC/DC tickets on one of the secondary markets?

Yup - Ticketmaster says tickets not available yet.  Secondary market will generally be higher likely until the day of the event.  Sometimes markets will list tickets high before they go on sale just as a placeholder...some Nationals tickets in the Club were listed at $11,003.00 last year until you got closer to the game date.

Check that...better rely the secondary markets exclusively for AC/DC...seems tickets went on sale on December 18th and they are 100% sold out at Ticketmaster...  :shock:

Good lord, all the DJs.  Makes one long for the good old days when preferred party drugs made people want to listen to psychedelic instead of this EDM bullcrap.

They have 6 stages, so you can avoid them...

Best of the Bee Gees (rel 1969).   There was a kid from Massachusetts at Ft. Polk who played this album (particularly "Massachusetts") over and over and over   ....  lots of memories in this album.

I hope to God I'm able to take my son to this concert. He loves them so much as do I. I thought taking him to see Star Wars was an amazing experience, I can't imagine what it would be like to take him to see his favorite band. Wonder how many other people will be taking a 7 year old to see them :lol:

I gather that the Youngs' nephew will be taking Malcolm's place. 

Back in '96 or so I saw Patti Smith play in Central Park - her son played Sonic Smith's part in a couple of MC5 songs. That was cool.

Well, every break on MSNBC and CNBC today has had a Bowie song on the lead to break.  CNBC's past 2 break have been Rebel Rebel and Under Pressure.
