VIDEO OF THE WEEK: AC/DC – ‘THUNDERSTRUCK’ (LIVE AT RIVER PLATE)’
August 17, 2020
This footage of the mighty AC/DC detonating their 1990 hit to tens of thousands of delirious fans, lays a serious claim to being the most exciting live footage ever captured for posterity.
Directed by long-time video collaborator David Mallet – easily one the most prolific figures in his field – the promo was shot at the River Plate stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in December 2009.
Utterly thrilling, the reaction of the crowd is testament to the enduring power of AC/DC’s rock’n’roll, and the vision of the fans bouncing as one lingers long in the mind.
And be sure to turn it up!
