AC/DC's 'Dress Rehearsal' In Wilkes-Barre; First Photos, Footage Available

Australian hard rock legends AC/DC held a "dress rehearsal" for their Black Ice World Tour last night (Sunday, October 26) at the Wachovia Arena in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania in front of 3,000 specially invited fans from around the world.

Check out photos at this location.

AC/DC reportedly began rehearsals at the arena on October 19 and agreed to kick off the tour at the same venue on October 28.

One person who attended last night's concert told BLABBERMOUTH.NET, "They played an 80-minute set of classic AC/DC, including 'Rock 'N Roll Train' and 'Black Ice' from the new album. The show was obviously just a selection of the setlist for the upcoming tour, but on my way out of the venue, I noticed what I guess is the complete setlist for the tour. It was written on a small poster in the closed off area around the sound- and light board, and all the songs they played on today's mini show were on the list."

A photo of the above-mentioned list can be viewed below.
