This really is the ultimate combined sonic and visual experience for every fan of the hardest rockers on the planet: the legendary AC/DC, on stage at the famed Monsters Of Rock festival at Castle Donington, on August 17, 1991. Released on Epic/Legacy in a letterboxed DVD format (visually similar to a film), this storming release contains nearly two hours of music, plus “”Angus-cam”” option on three tracks, and band member commentary.
Not only does this DVD capture the raw power, sound and showmanship of the worldâs biggest Rock band at the height of their powers, it also contains a number of awesome extras for a unique interactive rock experience. Bonus features include audio commentary by band members Angus Young, Malcolm Young, Brian Johnson and Cliff Williams. Another option allows fans to focus on just one member for the length of an entire song. Fans can watch Angus continuously on “”Thunderstruck,”” “”Back In Black,- and “”Highway To Hell””. The option is offered for Malcolm on “”T.N.T.,”” Brian on “”Whole Lotta Rosie”” and Cliff on “”Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.””
When they hit the stage at Donington, the Aussie rockers were touring behind The Razorâs Edge, an album that yielded two hit singles: “”Money Talks- and “”Thunderstruck”” (the song that leads off this DVD). AC/DC were clearly energized by their return to touring and it shows in this performance. This is one of the great live concert videos of all time, showing one of rock’s most formidable powers.”
Live at Donington is the DVD recording of the Australian rock band by AC/DC show at Donington Park on 17 August 1991, and it was the band’s third Monsters of Rock festival. The two-hour show was performed before 72,500 spectators and included real cannons, the Hells Bell, an inflatable Rosie and an inflatable Angus. It was filmed in 35 mm Panavision and had 26 cameras that included one situated inside a helicopter. The DVD includes special features such as stereo and 5.1 surround sound, Iso-cam versions of certain songs for different band members, and audio commentary from Angus and Malcolm Young.
Another option allows the viewer to focus on just one member for the length of a song. This option is available for Angus Young on “Thunderstruck”, “Back in Black”, and “Highway to Hell”. The option is offered for Malcolm Young on “T.N.T.”, Brian Johnson on “Whole Lotta Rosie” and Cliff Williams on “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap”. For unknown reasons, this option was not available for Chris Slade. One other feature is a full catalogue discography with audio interview of all international albums.
Despite the commercial success of the DVD, many hardcore fans were disappointed that the audio was fixed, with many differences than the original video, though the DVD officially released in Brazil still has original audio. Tracks from Live at Donington on AC/DC Live have the original audio.
The audio was used for the Harmonix game AC/DC Live: Rock Band Track Pack.
