27 years ago today, AC/DC played the second of two sold out nights at the Civic Center. These shows are particularly historic for me because they were my first shows with the Thundah from Down Undah. On May 3rd and 4th in 1988, AC/DC came to Portland on the Blow Up Your Video tour. I remember the show opening with a missile rising out of the stage and Angus Young jumping out of it and rippin' the opening licks to Heatseeker. What an entrance!
