According to singer Brian Johnson, all that sizzle came with a hefty price tag.

“The opening two minutes of the show are probably the most exciting opening to a rock ‘n’ roll show ever,” Johnson told the Herald Tribune of Sarasota, Fla. – his longtime home. “We got the guy who did much of the opening of the Beijing Summer Olympics. It cost us $6.3 million.”

Like most shows, the opening brings the crowd to their feet. Unlike many other concerts, AC/DC’s audience has been known to stay on its feet for the entire two-hour performance.
