On Thursday, September 3, AC/DC christened the stadium at TD Place with the fifth largest concert in Ottawa history.
Over 100 hours were spent setting up for the quintessential rock show, as TD Place was transformed in an epic concert venue.

The atmosphere at TD Place is always electrifying, but when AC/DC rocks the stadium you know HIGH VOLTAGE is in the air.

Openers Vintage Trouble set the stage perfectly, their modern blues-rock got the party started right.

And a few (thousand), not in attendance, enjoyed rocking out from afar.
