TVD Live Shots: AC/DC at Wrigley Field, 9/15

Well, it wasn’t all night long, but AC/DC sure did shake up Wrigley Field last Tuesday.

While throngs of fans piled into the sold-out show, many wearing red blinking devil horns, crowds also gathered outside the ballpark. Arguably the hardest rock band to ever play Wrigley Field, AC/DC managed to dazzle not just those in the friendly confines, but the entire neighborhood around it. All of Wrigleyville was gifted with the sounds of heavy metal classics booming throughout the streets. And even if you claim to not be a fan of AC/DC, you know the chorus to at least three of their songs. Maybe the verses too. You know I’m right.

Fans inside the ballpark were treated to an incredibly well produced show—the stage design, lighting and pyrotechnics were truly magnificent. I was wowed. I’ve photographed a lot of concerts this year, but this was easily one of the most visually dazzling, not to mention fun.

And I’m happy to report that they still sound great, with Angus and Brian bouncing from one side of the stage to the other with seemingly endless energy. Angus wailed on the guitar and Brian squealed into the mic, giving the crowd every ounce of energy they had. It was one of the most memorable Tuesdays I’ve had in a long time, and a hell of a way to end the summer season of concerts.
