Took a 2 hour ride, from my North Jersey home, to Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center for (imho) the last ever AC/DC show.  How could I not, as AC/DC is my favorite band of all-time and the venue was relatively close.  Went down by my lonesome as my usual concert buddies didn’t want to or couldn’t go.  Even my wife said no, as she couldn’t get off work.  Had a bit of an issue getting in as the cheap ticket I’d bought on ebay didn’t work when I tried to go in.  Lucky for me, I was able to buy a cheap ticket at the box office (turns out the show was nowhere near a sell-out) so the biggest disaster of my concert-going life was avoided.

It was another great show by the band.  Some poignant moments during the encore, with Axl Rose thanking AC/DC and AC/DC fans (before “Problem Child”) and Angus pushing Cliff Williams center stage to take a bow at the end of “FTATR” (Cliff gave Angus a hug as they exited stage right).  The band pulling “Problem Child” out of their song hat for the first time since 2001 was a nice touch, making what could be their final show extra special.

More notes:

I had an upper level seat, looking straight at the stage w/the full might of AC/DC’s amps an PA bearing down on me.  Man, it was loud to the point of being painful (yeah, I’m getting old).  My trusty Nokia Lumia Icon, once again, captured what I heard well but this recording might suffer from a bit too much low-end.  Listening now through my computer’s speakers and it sounds just fine but It might be too much on an actual car/home stereo system (I had to turn the bass control way down in my car when listening to the show on the way back home).
