Money isn't an object for us, concerts are one of the things my hubby and I LOVE to do together. So what if we spend a little more on tix to see possibly their last tour ever. At least, rumor has it this is their farewell tour, but we all know how those go (reunions years down the rd). Anyway, just wanted to argue my half!

Default Ac/dc 24/7?

That's right, now AC/DC every day, all the time, morning afternoon, and nighttime - just AC/DC.

On of the sat. radio companies now recently created a channel solely for AC/DC fans. Crazy.
----------------------------------

AC/DC Radio Highlights
AC/DC Radio
FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK...AC/DC RADIO

That's right, AC/DC have their own channel. AC/DC Radio celebrates the band's awesome career and also preview their upcoming album "Black Ice," their first studio album in eight years.

You'll hear AC/DC's music 24/7, plus band members Angus Young, Malcolm Young, Cliff Williams, Brian Johnson, and Phil Rudd talking about their incredible career.

Listeners will also have the chance to vote for their favorite AC/DC song - the votes will be tallied and played back during the "Ultimate AC/DC Countdown."

It's not like I can't afford it (I can), I just can think of a long list of better things to spend my money on than a concert; but that's just me!

Have a great time, and tell Angus I said 'hi!'

Cheers! M2

I've seen them 4 or 5 times throughout my life...great show, but it's been many years. Don't know if I could handle the volume anymore.

That's why we wear earplugs...yeah, people make fun of us for it, but really...who can hear the next day? I bet they aren't laughing then!

Sorry, didn't mean to sound like we had oodles of money. I meant, money is no object when it comes to concerts. We just enjoy it! Some people like taking cruises or investing in cars...we enjoy spending our free time and money on concerts. No biggie...and I'm sure Angus will say "hey" or "OI!" back!

Hi everyone - We're coming from Dallas to the concert. We are not that familiar with the area. Is there a nice hotel on the AT&T center grounds (like American Airlines Center has) or within walking distance? Thanks!

when I see the at&t center grounds, nice is never a word that comes to mind. You'll definitely want to find a hotel somewhere else and take a cab or rent a car.
I think I might go to this concert too. One of the guys I work with at my new job is going and I've always wanted to see them live. They're definitely one of the best bands ever.
BTW, is that AC/DC channel on Sirius by any chance? I'll have to check my radio later. I could go for nothing but them for a few days.

So are the Stones, but Mick is still more flexible and full of energy than I've ever been.

edit- yikes those tickets aren't cheap. How good is the at&t for concerts? I've never been in there, but it's gotta be better than the Freeman
