If you're looking for an objective review of this release, please be kind and skip this one. This one is not for you. If you want to know what it felt to be there, and what it feels to revive it watching this video... then you're on the right place.
Argentinians are a very proud race... we like to think we stand aside from the rest of Latin America on behalf of our predominant European heritage, but the truth is our country is as poor as any other third world country, if not more. Many of those 200.000 fans fulfilled the dream of a lifetime being in that field... others like me had the privilege to have been there before the last time, in 1996, but for the most part there was no one who hadn't been waiting less than a decade for this moment. And for the most part there was no one that spent close to a month's salary to be able to be there. In any case it was not easy for most of us to pony up the dollar to be in that field. It was a privilege for just a few lucky ones. But go 'round and ask the poorest of those fans, and the answer will be invariably the same. It was worth the sacrifice. It was worth all those overtime hours at work. It was worth the 12 hour bus from 1200 miles away. It was worth it. And we'll do it again if we have the chance. Because it's AC/DC. Because those sixty-something year old grandpas teach the world a Rock 'N Roll lesson every time they climb a stage. Because AC/DC teaches the world a humility lesson every time there is a microphone in front of any of them. That's why these mates can walk down any street in any city in the world like any other guy in the world even when having a 22 time Platinum album (which is 3 more Platinums than the top selling Beatles album). That is called RESPECT. And that is something no dollar figure can purchase. That is something that was earned with four decades of devotion to the fans and to Rock 'n Roll. In this video you will witness 200.000 crazy guys like me jumping up and down, banging their arms to the air and singing every chord that comes from Angus guitar or Brian's throat. In this video you will witness why there is no other crowd like Argentina's. We salute you, Angus, Brian, Malcolm, Cliff and Phil. We salute you, mates. Please keep on rockin'... we'll be always waiting for you in this God forsaken part of the world with our hands in the air, ready to jump, sing, and rock 'n roll.
