Day 2182 - AC/DC Rock or Bust World Tour

Let the head banging begin!


You know you're getting old when you're fan-girling over a rock band that's in their 60s.

Attending an AC/DC concert has been on my bucket list for around 20 years. Their previous Australian tours came at times where we either weren't financial or I had a baby on my hip.

Well, I'm not getting any younger.  Nor are they! After missing their 2010 tour I declared I'd hock our possessions to get a ticket to their next Aussie tour.



It turns out I don't have to.  They'll  be back in Oz in November and I got tickets for my birthday!

It's their Rock or Bust tour and I am praying to the head banging Gods that there'll be more rock (less bust) in the old Acca Dacca dudes.

Actually, I'm praying to the head banging Gods that there'll be enough rock left in me too!

I have the tickets in my hot little hands and unless the Acca's die between now and then  (or they procure a murder ... really Phil Rudd?) I'll be ticking off a big ol' life experience from my bucket list.

I'm not sure I'll be actually head banging though. That's a hell of a migraine right there.

I will be singing.  I will also be jumping up and down on the spot like a pogo stick and screaming a lot.  And sweating.

I may tease my hair into a curly perm-like boof (with the sides gelled back) and wear shoulder pads.  Or maybe black jeans and a black singlet with my bra showing.  Or not.

Actually, I don't know what I'll be doing or wearing, but I do know I'll be dragging my husband along for the ride.

I can't wait!

AC/DC here I come! Thanks Mum and Dad.

Are you an AC/DC fan?

Do you have a band on your bucket list?

What does one wear to an AC/DC concert?

  2. Wear comfy shoes and enjoy! I'm seeing Robbie Williams soon because I know he'll put on an awesome show. Not my usual speed but I can't resist that dorky, British charm! I remember when my daughter graduated preschool- they made cardboard guitars and sang TNT! It was spectacular :)

    1. I would LOVE to see Robbie. Another bucket list singer. I keep missing out on him for similar reasons I'd been missing out on Acca Dacca. Robbie is definitely on my list ...

  3. The last 2 concerts that I have been to have been performances by ahem, old men... First Neil Young, then Leonard Cohen. Leonard Cohen was on my bucket list, and now I have seen him twice. The only other person that I would love to see, and he doesn't tour, is Tom Waits, also getting on :)
    Agree with Amy on the comfy shoes!

  6. Not a fan, no BUT I'd still go and see them. Headbanging is the best and I love anything that people get extremely passionate about. Passionate people are my passion! Have a blast, baby! x

    1. I'm not sure what it is about them ... I just have to turn up the volume whenever their songs come on. I wasn't a HUGE fan growing up ... but a fan none-the-less ...

  8. I'm not a massive ACDC fan, however, our seven year old somehow knows ALL the words to Back in Black, yet can't remember to put his clothes in the wash basket...
