AC/DC To Open Final Rehearsal To Contest Winners

Last night, AC/DC opened the doors of their final dress rehearsal at Wilkes-Barre, PA's Wachovia Arena to contest winners from across the map, with fans traveling from as far as Scotland, the Czech Republic, Japan and beyond to see the band on the eve of their Black Ice World Tour.

Behind the back-drop of a giant train careening off track, the band roared onto the stage performing their new song, "Rock N' Roll Train" to the applause of an instantly charged audience. From there, the band whipped through decades of classic songs before returning to Black Ice with a stomping work-out of the album's title track. As the last notes of "Black Ice" wound-down, an oversize blow-up Rosie began to inflate, straddling the prop train and tapping her foot to the band's high-powered performance of "Whole Lotta Rosie" at full swell. After lighting the arena with his guitar pyrotechnics during "Let There Be Rock," Angus and the band retreated as the lights dimmed. Chants from the crowd accompanied the band's return to the stage for a two song encore, which ended with repeated cannon bursts as AC/DC closed out the night with a electric performance of "For Those About To Rock".

Smoke from the stage cannons lingered in halls of the Wachovia Arena long after the band's fans, piling into the cars and the fleet of buses that had caravanned them to the show, hit the highway to home.

AC/DC kicks off the Black Ice World Tour at Wilkes-Barre, PA's Wachovia Arena tomorrow.
