AC/DC in the Twin Cities - "The very reason AC/DC has maintained such a strong following over more than three decades - and drew a rabid, sold-out crowd of 15,419 Sunday night - is the band's unwavering commitment to, well, rocking out, which was fully evident at the X."- Pioneer Press / Twin Cities.com (registration may be required)
