Columbia Records Announces the Release Of AC/DC's 'Plug Me In,' the Ultimate Career-Spanning DVD Boxed Set of Live Performances & More from the World's Most Electrifying Rock & Roll Band

AC/DC's 'Plug Me In,' 5 Hours of Rare & Collectible High Voltage Rock & Roll on 2 DVDs, Available Tuesday, October 16

Deluxe 'Plug Me In - Collector's Edition' -- Including 3 DVDs Containing over 7 Hours of Rare & Unreleased Material Along With a Treasure Trove of Facsimile Reproductions of Vintage Memorabilia -- Also Available Tuesday, October 16

NEW YORK -- Columbia Records will release Plug Me In -- the ultimate career-spanning DVD box set of live performances, interviews and more from AC/DC, the world's most electrifying rock & roll band -- on Tuesday, October 16.

The first AC/DC release since the band came to Columbia Records earlier this year, the AC/DC Plug Me In DVD collection brings together for the very first time an astonishing five hours of definitive live concert and television performances -- many of them previously unavailable -- chronicling the on- going career (now in its fourth decade!) of a groundbreaking rock & roll powerhouse whose music transcends the test of time.

"AC/DC has delivered the most dynamic rock & roll music in the world," said Steve Barnett, Chairman, Columbia Records. "Columbia is honored to be releasing this definitive career-spanning retrospective featuring many of AC/DC's finest filmed performances."

Disc One of the AC/DC Plug Me In DVD collection begins with a performance of "High Voltage" performed in October 1975 on Australia's "King of Pop Awards" show. The first disc of Plug Me In is devoted to the band's formative years (1975-1979) with original lead singer, the late Bon Scott capturing the group in its full early glory with more than 20 performances including rare black & white video footage of the notorious St. Albans High School concert on March 3, 1976; the very first UK television appearance in July 1976; pristine live full-color stereo concert performances from Glasgow and Essex University in 1978; and three songs -- including the very first public performance of "Highway To Hell" -- from Netherlands television in 1979. Bonus material on Disc One includes a Bon Scott interview from November 1977; extraordinary band interviews from 1976; and four songs recorded live in Nice on December 15, 1979, one of Bon Scott's last concerts with the band before his tragic death on February 19, 1980.

Disc Two of the AC/DC Plug Me In DVD collection covers the band's second great epoch: the Brian Johnson era which began with the release of "Back In Black" in 1980 and continues to this day. In addition to more than 20 performances drawn from three decades of concerts around the world -- including an extremely rare Japanese television appearance from February 1981, blistering 80s and 90s sets from Detroit to Moscow, incredible footage from 1996's "Ballbreaker" tour (including the "Beavis & Butthead" intro), and 21st century barnburners in Paris, Munich, and Toronto -- Plug Me In includes a fantastic array of bonus material including the AC/DC Donnington interview on the "Old Grey Whistle Test" (August 1984) and AC/DC's in-concert performance of "Rock Me Baby" with the Rolling Stones.

A deluxe collector's edition of Plug Me In -- containing a third DVD of 21 additional rare performances spanning both the Bon Scot and Brian Johnson eras as well as a treasure trove of facsimile reproductions of authentic AC/DC memorabilia -- will also be available for a limited time beginning Tuesday, October 16.

The AC/DC Plug Me In DVD box set is both a Holy Grail for aficionados of AC/DC as well as an ideal and comprehensive introduction to the music and history of a pioneering band that continues to define the electrifying possibilities of rock & roll

Nah, Queen fans would be complaining about the fact that there are no complete shows on this disk. Furthermore, most of them would complain there's not enough "new" material on this set, and that certain bits from this and that show should be included as well.

For me, I think it's an interesting box, but I'll skip it, since I'm not that much of an AC/DC fan. I have a couple of albums, but not that many. This is too obscure for me. Interesting to see once, but that's it.

I think he just had a problem with "the" AC. Called the maintenance man, fixed it, problem solved.

AC/DC's live releases are always good. Even the casual fan will find that true.
