    By living.scotsman.com, Scotland:
    A little known but amazing gig only witnessed by 150 lucky people.AC/DC,s first ever UK gig.The band had come to the UK the UK to do a showcase gig at the Marquee in London but as they were visiting family in Scotland they wanted to do a couple of low key warm up gigs. I was on the Union Ents Committee & we were offered the band for £50.
    Believe or not there was a lot of discussion.We normally only paid £15 to bands.Due to the amount of gear AC/DC used we would have to cut the capacity of the Union from 250 to 150 .The Union at the Sighthill Campus was basically a big wooden hut !!Also we would have to put up the ticket price from 50p to 75p to cover our costs.It was considered a bit of a gamble for an unknown band.Anyway once we had heard a copy of their hit Australian album the decision was made easy.

    This was by far the best gig I have ever witnessed,totally unforgettable.They were sensational with the late great Bon Scott & Angus Young in top form. Angus sitting On Bon shoulders being carried around the Union playing guitar being a highlight..As the Unions DJ at the the time my only claim to fame is to say that I supported AC/DC on their first ever UK gig !!

    As one of the doormen/stewards for this concert - they were not well received and towards the end of the gig I was having to restrain people from throwing things at them. Much better sounding band by 1977.

    By David Lawrie, Castle Douglas, Dumfries and Galloway:
    My friend at the time Dave Gardner did stage lighting for bands and called me the previous Sunday to get myself to Armadale Community centre in West Lothian ASAP, he was working for Radio Forth lighting a concert for kids. I got there in 30 minutes and was blown away! From there went to Stirling on the Tuesday night - again promoted by the radio station. They were free and I agreed a fee for a Friday night with their manager - can’t remember how much. Should say I was the Sighthill Union President so all my call! Stage borrowed from a pal at the Swallow Hotel Edinburgh. Stage had to go across the main doors into our prefab Union so everyone came in the back fire door. Set was amazing - dangerous though as Angus was carried round the dance floor on Bon’s shoulders he kept hitting his head off the ceiling mounted spot lights! Trying to be good and hospitable to our overseas visitors we tracked down an Aussie brew called Fosters in a speciality beer shop off Ferry Road, so imagine our disappointment when on entering their dressing room (my office) Bon said loudly “ Oh Christ not that s**t” Don’t think we counted the crowd, but very happy the fire officer didn’t show up.
    A truly great memory I will take with me to the grave!
