AC/DC Comes To Cleveland! 21 Years Ago Today!

On this day in AC/DC history…March 30th, 1996.  AC/DC comes to Cleveland!  That’s right!  Angus and the boys come to Cleveland and The Gund Arena, and yours truly is at the show.   Look at that ticket price! $24.50?!!! The last show cost me $135.00 per ticket! Anyhow, I remember going there with “The Dewmaster‘, Dewey Stevens, long time Air Personality at WNCX  and friend.  What a great show it was.  I remember one of the coolest things about the concert was when Brian Johnson was sitting on top of the wrecking ball that was swinging back and forth while singing ‘Ballbreaker‘.  I remember Angus being on top of Brian’s shoulders while being carried all over the arena.  However, being that it was 21 years ago, can’t remember much more than that, other than not being able to talk or hear for the next week. ( I can’t even remember some concerts that I went to last week!)
