Blimp Time-Hop: Mr. and Mrs. Guru Honeymoon With AC/DC
It’s pretty safe to say that AC/DC is one of Blimpville’s most favorite live rock acts ever. They've sold out every show, every time they've played the Civic Center.
29 years ago today, ‘Thah Thundah from Down Undah’ came back to Portland for their 6th sold-out night since their first concert at the CCCC in 1985.
On November 13,1990, AC/DC brought The Razors Edge Tour to Blimpville. My wife Sherry and I were newlyweds and made sure we included this show as part of our honeymoon.
Our mutual love of AC/DC is just as much of a bond today as it was when we first met. Awwwwww…right? We're still married. So maybe the real secret is, the couple that rocks out with AC/DC together, stays together.
Check out this epic photo us just married with ANGUS!
This AC/DC concert was the triumphant return of Malcolm Young (nephew Stevie Young was on guitar last time in '88). It also was the introduction of Chris Slade on drums.
AC/DC fake bills were dropped from the lighting trusses during Money Talks and we grabbed handfuls…still have a few at home today.
Look at what they played. What a show, guy.
Now listen to what they played. here's audio of the entire Portland show from 11/13/1990.
