Argentina Goes Crazy For AC/DC

Video footage of AC/DC fans showing their appreciation for their heroes during the band's December 2, 2009 performance at the River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina can be viewed below.

According to 10Musica.com, AC/DC's three sold-out shows at the River Plate Stadium on December 2, 3 and 6 (65,000 capacity each) are being filmed for a future DVD release. Additional footage at the stadium was shot on Saturday, December 5 without the presence of an audience.

AC/DC arrived in Buenos Aires on Sunday, November 29.

AC/DC released a limited-edition box set called "Backtracks" on November 10. The set, which comes in two versions, was made available only through the ACDCBacktracks.com web site. As previously speculated, the "deluxe" package is housed inside a fully operational AC/DC amplifier and comes in a limited, autographed run of 50,000 copies. Included in the set are three CDs of live and studio rarities, two DVDs, a vinyl LP also containing studio rarities, a 164-page coffee table book, fine art lithographs of rare photos, a reproduction of an early AC/DC concert flyer and other memorabilia, including a button, guitar pick, and more.

A standard edition features two CDs of live and studio material, a single DVD plus bonus videos.

The first DVD is the long-awaited video compilation "Family Jewels 3", which rounds up the group's music videos, live performances, and promotional clips from 1992 to 2009. The second DVD, "Live At The Circus Krone", captures a complete club show that the band played in Munich in 2003.

Among the studio rarities included in the set are alternate versions of a number of early AC/DC tracks, as well as the never-before-released "Love Song", possibly the only ballad the band ever wrote with original singer Bon Scott.
