Fans ‘Review’ AC/DC’s Concert In Los Angeles; Video Available - Dec. 21, 2008, which uses portable video technology to gather reviews from concertgoers moments after they attend a live event, has posted a 10-minute report (see below) from AC/DC’s December 6, 2008 at The Forum in Inglewood, California.

According to, AC/DC has returned to the top of Billboard’s European Top 100 Albums chart with “Black Ice” (Columbia/Sony BMG). The album moves 3-1 in its ninth week on the survey, which it led for four weeks in late October and November. It moves 6-3 in Denmark and 7-5 in Switzerland, holding at No. 5 in France.

“Black Ice”, which was released in the U.S. exclusively at Wal-Mart, has become the fourth-best-selling album of the year with 1.6 million copies sold, despite the lack of any digital sales. The effort made history debuting at #1 on album charts in 29 countries and also has the distinction of being Columbia Records’ biggest debut album (since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales data for Billboard in March of 1991). “Black Ice” has been certified multi-platinum in eight countries, including the U.S., Australia, Canada, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Germany and the Czech Republic. Additionally, “Black Ice” has achieved platinum status in twelve countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, UK, Argentina, Singapore and New Zealand) and gold status in four countries (Netherland, Spain, Poland and Brazil).

With over 6 million copies of “Black Ice” shipped worldwide, combined with over 5.5 million in catalog sold this year, AC/DC has surpassed THE BEATLES as the #1-selling catalog artist in the U.S. for 2008.
