AC/DC: Let There Be Rock, the classic 1979 Paris concert documentary, will be released to Blu-Ray and DVD on June 7 after much fanfare. The concert, which was part of the band's "Highway to Hell" tour, was filmed two months before the tragic death of revered lead singer Bon Scott and has achieved something of a legendary status as a result.

 

In addition to the concert film, the release includes extensive backstage footage of the band, interviews, a 32-page booklet by Why AC/DC Matters writer Anthony Bozza a collector's guitar pick and a set of concert photos. Everything comes together in a 30th anniversary collector's tin.

 

The 1979 Paris concert would be the last filmed live concert featuring the singer, and for the first time ever on Blu-ray and DVD, Warner Home Video (WHV) is getting set to celebrate one of the greatest performers and legendary rock bands of all-time by releasing the film to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the theatrical release. 

AC/DC – Let There Be Rock is fully remastered and available on DVD and Blu-Ray for the first time with all 13 song performances, including classics such as “Whole Lotta Rosie,” “High Voltage,” “Highway To Hell” and the epic titular anthem “Let There Be Rock”. The film contains interview segments and humorous backstage footage of these hard rock pioneers, especially those last interviews with Scott.  This DVD release will be a great opportunity for fans of all ages to relive one of the greatest performances by one of the most decorated rock bands in history. 

 

Celebrity interviews in the film include Rick Allen (Def Leppard), Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses), Scott Ian (Anthrax), Billy Corgan (The Smashing Pumpkins), The Donnas, Lemmy Kilmister (Motorhead) and more. 

 “AC/DC is one of the most iconic bands in rock music history and WHV is proud to showcase their legendary 1979 Paris concert on Blu-Ray and DVD for the first time ever,” said Rosemary Markson, Vice-President of TV and Special Interest Marketing.  “Warner Home Video is thrilled to bring this incredible show to AC/DC and rock fans, including a special limited collector’s edition version with over an hour of never-before-seen bonus features and much more.”
