REVIEW: AC/DC rock out for New Jersey-New York crowds

MusicEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — AC/DC, the legendary rock ‘n’ roll band from Australia, tore into 20 songs, both classic and new, last night at MetLife Stadium. The concert, featuring the crazed beauty of Angus Young’s guitar and the electric vocals of Brian Johnson, was a love-fest of rockdom. The fans, numbering in the tens of thousands, received both the hit tunes and some awesome new ones off the album Rock or Bust.

The title track from that new album actually opened the concert around 8:45 p.m. The audience, mostly standing, many head bobbing, enjoyed the song and its accompanying theatrics, all meant to introduce the band to the stage and remind everyone of their undying greatness in the annals of rock history.
