I could not be happier to hear this news…Canadian heavy metal band Anvil will open two dates for AC/DC this summer, at Gillette Stadium in Boston July 29 and Giants Stadium in New Jersey July 31.
Watch the movie trailer above and read this blog entry from the MTV Newsroom, which perfectly sums up my feelings about this tremendously touching and heartfelt story. I’ve seen the movie twice and you can bet I’ll be at Giants Stadium for this gig.
I saw AC/DC last November at MSG and it was the loudest show I’ve ever seen, and certainly one of the best.
In other rock news…
**Got my Neil Young Archives box set in the mail today and it looks great. Nine CDs, a movie, an elaborate book with pictures, can’t wait to dive in.
**I’d love to see a couple shows this week in the NY/NJ/Philly area but I’ve soured on spending $150-$200 bucks a show (unless it’s Anvil and AC/DC). Fleetwood Mac plays MSG Thursday and Eric Clapton/Steve Winwood are doing a few shows in the area as well.
**Forty-four years after The Beatles played Shea Stadium, 67-year-old Paul McCartney will be the first musician to play Citi Field when he does two shows July 17 and 18. You know those are going to be great.
**Word is The Stones will lace ’em up and tour again in 2010. God Bless ’em.
