Although nearly half a million fans turned out at Downsview in Toronto in 2003 to see the headlining act -- The Rolling Stones -- all anyone talked about after the show was AC/DC, and how they pretty much blew all the other acts off the stage. That's got to tell you SOMETHING, and this DVD goes a long way toward explaining why that was so: it certainly shows the Thunder From Down Under at their hard-rocking best. Angus Young is (as always) a treat to watch. Not only is his guitar technique almost supernaturally skillful, his whole "slightly whacko" schick (e.g. his "seizure" during that extended guitar solo) is just so entertaining!

(And isn't it great they performed Jailbreak? That's a kick-ass AC/DC classic that doesn't get anywhere NEAR enough air-play, in my opinion.) I think my only complaint about this concert is that a lot of Brian Johnson's between-song banter seems to me to be awfully forced and insincere.
