AC/DC Reportedly Filming New Live DVD
Given that AC/DC's most recent album, Rock or Bust, contains a song called "Play Ball," it makes sense that the tour's now-customary live DVD would be from a show at one of America's most famous stadiums. As it turns out, they were reportedly filming last Tuesday's concert at Chicago's Wrigley Field.
There's no official word from the band on this but the Chicago Tribune spoke to a representative from the office of Alderman Tom Tunney, who said that there would be helicopters flying over the Wrigleyville neighborhood to film aerial shots of the iconic ballpark for the purpose of a DVD. It's unknown at this time whether AC/DC's plans are to release the entire concert or if the aerial shots will be used as part of a compilation package.
But even though AC/DC ended their two-hour show at approximately 10PM, an hour before the ballpark's 11PM curfew for concerts, the Tribune reports that Tunney's office still received between about 15-20 complaints about the noise, with most calls coming from people who live north and northwest of Wrigley. They used pyrotechnics on three occasions during the show, the introduction video and the last two songs, "Highway to Hell" and "For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)."
AC/DC have regularly put out a live video from their tours, with the most recent being 2011's Live at River Plate, which was recorded at Argentina's national soccer stadium in Buenos Aires. The Rock or Bust tour, which wraps up on Sept. 28 in Los Angeles, is their first-ever without founding guitarist Malcolm Young, who was forced into retirement due to poor health, and first since 1994 without drummer Phil Rudd, who was sentenced in July to eight months of home detention for threatening to kill someone and drugs possession.
