AC/DC's 'Live at River Plate' DVD launched in the U.S.
AC/DC – USA – May 10 2010 – Today is the official U.S. launch date of AC/DC’s ‘Live at River Plate’ DVD – available on both DVD and Blu-ray formats. The film documents the massive Black Ice Tour and features concert footage recorded in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in December 2009. The film was directed by AC/DC’s long-time director, David Mallet who has been filming the band for over 20 years.
The film was captured on 32 HD cameras and several video teasers have been released by Columbia Records ahead of its release.
The film received its World Premiere in London last Friday whereby fans were treated to a rare appearance of the band, minus drummer Phil Rudd, whose house was recently hit by a storm and who was unable to be present.
Rumors had began to swirl about the future of the band prior to the event, specifically about retirement, which were quickly quashed as members of the band took the opportunity to talk to the media who had gathered to cover the occasion. Those rumors were Shot Down in Flames in unified defiance as the band declared that they were making future plans for another tour and album which, although they didn’t know how, would be “better and bigger” than the recent Black Ice tour, itself declared the second highest grossing tour in history at the time.
The full set of teasers can be viewed on our special ‘Live at River Plate’ video page.
