AC/DC Live At River Plate, their first live album in 20 years, on Tuesday November 20th. AC/DC Live At River Plate was recorded in Buenos Aires in December 2009 when nearly 200,000 fans (over 3 sold-out nights) thunderously welcomed AC/DC back after a 13-year absence from Argentina. AC/DC Live At River Plate captures the legendary grandeur, excitement and energy that AC/DC's live performances are renowned for. This ultimate live recording chronicles one of the largest shows from their massively successful Black Ice World Tour (where they performed to over 5 million fans in 108 cities in over 28 countries). The 19 tracks on AC/DC Live At River Plate span AC/DC's extensive repertoire, including old and new classics like "Back In Black," "Thunderstruck," "You Shook Me All Night Long" and "Rock N Roll Train" (see below for full track listing). Released in 2011, the AC/DC Live at River Plate DVD detailed the fan excitement of AC/DC's arrival in Argentina and documented the construction of their massive stage production. The DVD debuted at #1 in 17 countries and cemented the fact that fans just cannot get enough of AC/DC. Clips of "Thunderstruck" and "Shoot To Thrill" from AC/DC Live at River Plate have garnered 14 million and 22 million views respectively on YouTube. To date AC/DC's videos have over 72 million views online, with an average 600,000 views per week.

If you've seen the band live, all you need to know is this: "This is a high-quality 2-CD set of live AC/DC. Period."
If you have the great, great misfortune of never seeing the band live, or if you really want more detail, here's the long version:
Live at River Plate is the first live AC/DC album since AC/DC live. Both are double-CDs that feature the full content of an AC/DC concert. Unlike Live (shot during the Razor's Edge tour in 91), all of River Plate comes from one single venue/night's performance. AC/DC returned to Argentina after a long time since last performing there, and you can tell that the very large crowd is starved for a serious serving of rock'n'roll! This concert has already been released on DVD and is generally available on youtube if you want to preview the songs. For me, the true test of any rock'n'roll band is whether they sound better live than they do recorded. AC/DC is easily one of the greatest live bands ever (they even upstaged The Stones at SARSFest), and this double-CD proves it. So here are the tracks from the album:
1. Rock N Roll Train- I guess I can start this review saying I saw the band three times last tour. Their shows are generally quite predictable, so it's easy to comment from one to another (if it ain't broke, don't fix it is their motto!). The concerts all start with a cartoon video of a runaway train with devil Angus and some hot girls on a train. Fortunately, this CD cuts most of that out (versus the really long build-up of AC/DC Live) and after hearing the squealing of a train's breaks, Angus kicks it into gear with the opening rift of this song. It's a great tune, an instant sing-a-long, and the crowd gets into it right away.Read more ›
Let's look at the songs - from the opening ROCK N ROLL TRAIN, on through BACK IN BLACK, THUNDERSTRUCK, WAR MACHINE AND YOU SHOOK ME ALL NIGHT LONG, we also get Bon Scott classics like HELL AIN'T A BAD PLACE TO BE, which follows the opener, on through a very heavy, very satisfying version of DIRTY DEEDS DONE DIRT CHEAP. There is also a 10 minute version of THE JACK and an 18 minute version of LET THERE BE ROCK. HELLS BELLS makes an appearance, and who can refuse long time staples like T.N.T. HIGHWAY TO HELL and everybody's favorite gal, WHOLE LOTTA ROSIE. An excellent concert from start to finish, and the perfect companion to BLACK ICE.

All in all very satisfied; singers voice is a little gruff @ times, but that's on the singer not the quality of the CD.
Shipping and packing was excellent. Read more
So good to have a live album from these Gods of rock! First live album since 1991 so it's great to hear all the classics and some of the newer tunes off of Black Ice. Read morePublished on Oct. 31 2013 by Mike P
