    Fan reviews:

    By mike ryan, Preston Lancashire England:
    Many thanks to my cousin Neil Sherman from Blackpool who asked did I want to come to see a heavy metal band from Australia. NUTS well squeezed by the sheered volume and power of an unknown band with the stage presence of a small but perfectly formed thermo nuclear device...
    P.S. Way back then I seem to recall that they played the next night in a pub in Fleetwood - that was just as amazing - or was that just my brain and ears trying to reconnect??? Would like this confirming as I've lived off this claim for many years well come on AC/DC in Fleetwood please !!!!

    50 people in the pub but it really was out body - probably down to speaker Tsunami body shock - WE ROCKED

    By Bill Moffat, Preston, Lancashire, UK:
    I was a 22 year old scruffy student at Blackpool Photography college when I heard about a good Rock band coming to Blackpool so I took my trusty camera and went to the Imperial Hotel and got there so early I spotted the roadies manhandling some equipment into the Ballroom so I gave them a hand and after the stuff was all inside they said "you might as well stop with us for the gig!"
    When the band arrived I took a few photos of them in the dressing room and we all went to the Savoy Hotel for a bit of a meal before the gig.
    Once the band got on stage I hung around at the rear so I could get some good shots and I can honestly say it was the best Rock gig I've ever been to!!
    After the gig we all went back to the Savoy and I can remember sitting next to Bon in his bedroom, sharing a spliff (like you do!) and when he went to go for a "jimmy riddle" the road manager who was also in the room, grabbed my camera and came back a few minutes later with a smile saying "I want a copy of the photo I've just taken but don't you dare send it to any of the music papers"!
    I kept my word about that photo and still have a copy of that print but the negatives got lost over the years and only have a contract strip of the other photos, the memory of that night is as vivid as ever!!

    By Paul crosbie, Chico ca usa:

    By Lee Greenwood, UK:
    I was 18 at the time and my mate Roy had the first album, which we thought was great. So when we heard they were playing Blackpool it was a no brainer. It was my first rock gig and boy what a gig. The first song started and out from the side of the stage came this little lad in school uniform, playing unbelievable riffs. They blistered their way through a great set , at one point Angus was on Bon's shoulders being carried through the audience still rocking out. The memory will never leave me of my first gig, I'm so blessed it was AC/DC.

    By Shaun Ginley, Liverpool:
    I'd just sat some exam in Preston. Came back to Blackpool on the train and went to Lewis's to see a friend, Jane who worked on the wig counter.
    Then I went to coronation St Winter Gardens building where there was a tiny record shop. I noticed the poster advertising AC/DC and being ignorant, asked one of the shop workers what they were like. He convinced me to go. The Imperial Hotel ballroom. Couldn't be that good. It was one of the best regards rock concerts ever!
    Tim Pilling's older brother was the DJ that night warming us up for AC/DC. He played some classic rock music. He did a very good job.
    So I got myself to the front of and stated thee until the end. Thought I was going to get my leg as guillotined off with all the fan as behind me pushing me against the thigh high stage.
    Loved it. Raw but oh so tight. But when you see how many hundreds of concerts they had already done, there expertise was not surprising. Utterly brilliant surprise night out. Exams in the morning to one of the best rock bands EVER in the evening. Unbelievable really now. But, it's all true.
    PS that black DJ at trader jack's in those days was awesome as well. Car Wash never sounded better.

    By Karen Barton, Queensland, Australia :
    I now live in Australia, but I’m Blackpool born and bred. AC/DC one of the first live bands I saw, I honestly don’t remember much about this gig, I still have my ticket and my Aussie friends can’t believe I saw Bon Scott as many of them have not!

    By Shaun Ginley, UK:
    I arrived at the concert purely by accident. I'd done a resit exam in the morning in Preston then came back to Blackpool on the train and went to see a friend, Jane, who worked on the wig counter at Lewis's. Then went to the record shop at the bottom of Coronation St in the outside of the Winter Gardens building. Saw an advert on the wall. Asked about them and bought a ticket. What a decision that was. I got there early. The pre concert music was provided by a Baines Grammar lad the older brother of a lad in my year called Tim Pilling. Can't remember his older brothers full name. His selection of classic rock was staggering. Very very good. I eventually made my way to the stage right at the front and thought during the concert I would get my legs guillotined off. One of the best concerts I've ever been to. A few years later saw them again at Lancaster University.
