Let There Be Rock UK Charts 1977
On October 12th 1977, AC/DC kicked off a 17 date UK tour in support of their then new album "Let There Be Rock". The band had just completed a European portion of the tour on the 9th, in Kontich, Belgium, the concert that would later spawn the song "Bedlam In Belgium" due to the near-riot incident that took place that night. AC/DC continued on with the UK leg 3 days later in Sheffield, which would also include performances at the Newcastle Mayfair Ballroom, London's Hammersmith Odeon, and Glasgow's Apollo. By the end of the UK leg of the tour, "Let There Be Rock" would enter the UK charts at #42, becoming AC/DC's first album to chart in the UK. The album would later peak at #17 within the next two weeks later.
