AC/DC's video teasers have fans expectations reaching fever pitch
The third video teaser, currently running at one per week since the official announcement was made on March 7th, are raising expectations amongst fans to near fever pitch levels.
The third consecutive teaser released today was for "Let There Be Rock" and 'AC/DC Live at River Plate' is clearly going to be a scorching hot release this spring.
The teasers provide an insight into the audio and video quality that can be expected from the final release, which is officially set to be unleashed here in the U.S. on May 10th, however, we would not be surprised to see the movie released earlier since the release of Iron Man 2 was released about one week earlier than was set by the official press release.
Judging by what we have seen in the 5-minutes of video so far (and there could be more...), the movie, captured using 32 HD cameras, ...yes - thirty-two High Definition cameras - look to have captured a clarity and depth which has rarely been seen in concert footage up until now.
What is fascinating is the uncompromising way David Mallet, has been able to achieve a balance between fan participation and the colossal spectacle of an AC/DC gig. The setlist, lasting around two hours, along with the run-up beginning at a slow pace - gathering intensity throughout the day, fueled by expectation, heat, drink and enthusiasm is so tangible, you can almost feel it. This is about as close as it gets to reliving the day without actually being there to smell and taste the experience.
As far as concert filming goes, 'Live at River Plate' looks set to become the standard against which all others will be measured or compared.
