AC/DC are coming to Detroit, MI!

On the 9th of September, AC/DC will return to Detroit to play their 20th show in Motor City’s Palace. It’s hard to believe that last year on the first leg of the ‘Rock or Bust’ tour, the band played their first ever stadium concert within the city of Detroit at the home of the Detroit Lions, Ford Field, right in the heart of downtown. It marked the biggest show ever in Detroit for AC/DC in their 40 years of touring. This was the set list from that big night:

Rock or Bust
Shoot to Thrill
Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be
Back in Black
Play Ball
Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
Thunderstruck
High Voltage
Rock 'n' Roll Train
Hells Bells
Baptism by Fire
You Shook Me All Night Long
Sin City
Shot Down in Flames
Have a Drink on Me
T.N.T.
Whole Lotta Rosie
Let There Be Rock
(with Angus Young guitar solo)
Encore:
Highway to Hell
For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)

Another notable Detroit factoid is that a performance of “For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)” from Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena in November 1983 was used in the 73-minute videotape that accompanied the release of AC/DC’s Who Made Who album.
