The movie features AC/DC live at the Pavillion De Paris on December 9, 1979, during the tour that would be singer Bon Scott's last. After almost ten minutes of glimpses at the backstage life, the real movie starts as the band is introduced playing live on stage. Although the band is still in their '70s minimalist era with few stage effects and pyrotechnics, the live performance is considered one of the best and most energetic of their career. The live concert is intercut with quasi-fictional interviews with the members of the band. The interviews took place in Reims, France, two days before the concert.Written by
The film was finally released on DVD to fan demand request in 2011 after Malcolm Young had announced the original master reel had been damaged in storage and deemed unusable to restore to DVD. Fans had already traded VHS to DVD transfers around and AC/DC eventually gave in and released the show on DVD from a VHS or copied reel. No one has complained about the video quality and the show was still able to mastered into 5.1 surround sound. See more »

...i'm satisfaction guaranteed.." Bon Scott screams out on "Live Wire"...and i think these words are just perfect to describe this piece of music history...yes music history! I saw this movie 100 times or maybe 120...and every time it is better and better,rocker and rocker.. AC/DC are the best band!and they proved it all that night back in 1980..if it was needed. So if you want to be part of music history u must see this movie. BEWARE!!!!!!! YOU WON'T BE THE SAME AFTER THIS VISION.
