"Itâ€™s an inside job that forced me to reschedule those upcoming 6 shows! Inside being the operative word here. My insides were giving me lots of trouble, ulcers and such. They were really uncomfortable and painful, which required me to seek immediate medical attention. The doctor's looked me over, pocked, scanned and prodded all possible areas. In the end they gave me a clean bill of health, but insisted that I take a bit of time to recuperate and rest up. We've been touring non stop since this time last year and have a lot more touring to do. Thanks for all of the get well wishes and i hope to see you all again very soon."

From Times & Transcript

There is something about the music and legend of AC/DC that spans all demographics and lifestyles.
Little children love the glowing devil horns, the thumping beat and the searing guitar licks. Housewives and grown-up businessmen burdened by responsibilities tear off their aprons and ties to shake their hips and bang their heads.
Over the last few months, the Times & Transcript has invited readers to share their stories through a telephone line and e-mail address. Here are some of the stories readers shared with us:
This letter came by e-mail from Amanda Coates, Age 10:
"I am the number 1 AC/DC fan. On December 25, 2008, I was the happiest girl in the world when I was flipping through a magazine and out came two tickets to see AC/DC in Toronto. My heart was filled with joy. The concert was on January 9, 2009 at the Rogers Centre. There, I got glowing devil horns and a carry-on bag with a picture of the animated Angus Young on it. My dad took me and I was so happy. They opened up with Rock and Roll Train and closed with For Those About to Rock, We Salute You. The best song was The Jack. At the end they had fireworks and I jumped. It was the best time I had in my entire life and I would kill to see them again."
This next letter came by e-mail from someone named Jenna:
"I could feel a lot of vibrations, a lot of agitation and a great deal of noise. I was floating. At first, I was curious as I had never heard and felt such a thunderous sound. I could actually feel it pulsate all around me. Then, I let myself go to the rhythm. I started moving my arms, letting them float around me. And then my legs started moving, it was impossible to stay immobile in this captivating heat that was coming from all around me."
"I later found out that I was at an AC/DC concert. My name is Jenna and 17 years ago I travelled to Old Orchard Beach to be at an AC/DC performance, two months before my birth. I was still in my mother's womb. To this day, when I hear the music, my heart beats a little faster."
The next letter was written by a seven-year-old student for the Frye Festival in Moncton and submitted by e-mail by her mom, Lori Copp of Moncton:
"My dad loves AC/DC because it is rock and roll. When he takes me to school he turns on the music and turns on his flashing light and goes woo woo! Sometimes my dad does it in the house and scares the dog. Sometimes I laugh at him. My mom says to him to stop two or three times. My dad is very annoying sometimes."

Selling out a 53,000 stadium doesn't happen often, but AC/DC knows how to draw three different generations to one place. Check out this great review of the August 10 show in Montreal HERE.
