Fargodome Left Thunderstruck

A 40+-year-old Australian band played a two-hour set to a packed-tight Fargodome on Thursday.

The age of the AC/DC did not hinder the performance.

Lead guitarist Angus Young, 60, had multiple guitar solos and led the show, dancing around the stage throughout the whole performance.

Frontman Brian Johnson, 68, also did not let his age show. Though his vocals are not what they were in his prime, Johnson lit up the house.

Opening group Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown opened for AC/DC, playing an hour-long set before AC/DC took the stage.

The show started with a video of two astronauts discovering a hellish AC/DC-branded asteroid that crashed straight into Earth.

AC/DC began to play to a standing ovation from flashing-devil-horn touting fans with the song the tour is named after, “Rock or Bust.”

The energy of the crowd intensified as the event progressed as the band played one perennial classic power riff after another.

The set-list included highly enjoyable rock ‘n’ roll songs that kept the audience on their toes through the whole event.

Following “Rock or Bust,” the group played songs such as “Shoot to Thrill,” “Back in Black,” “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap,” “Thunderstruck,” “High Voltage,” “Hell’s Bells,” “You Shook Me All Night Long,” “Shot Down in Flames,” “TNT,” “Whole Lotta Rosie,” “Let There Be Rock” and more.

Young followed “Let There Be Rock” with an extensively long guitar solo, complete with crowd interaction, rising on a podium and a generous amount of confetti being shot into the air.

The group concluded the night with an intense two song encore of “Highway to Hell” and a canon aided “For Those About to Rock (We Salute You).”

All in all, AC/DC has went the long way to the top, and they definitely know how to rock ‘n’ roll.
