Anyone know if this venue date and location are correct? http://s1247.photobucket.com/albums/gg622/shakedownice1/ I looked here on the site under Concert History and found no such date, and never heard of them playing in Beloit, WI. Also, I checked some of the tour years and during some they played oversees, so there was no way this show could be played if they were over in London or Australia e.g. I am trying to confirm some venue dates and was going to submit this poster to the archive under Concert History, but not sure if this was a mislabelled show or a show which got cancelled. If anyone can help, thanks.

^ Forgot to mention they supposedly played with a band called The Names as shown on poster, and after doing an Internet search of this venue, date, and even a search of the other band, came up with nothing.

this might answer your question. look below the pic. "Correction: I spoke to one of the guys in the opening act THE NAMES and this gig never took place! It was 1977-78. AC/DC cancelled." http://www.flickr.com/photos/twhouston/5558821820/

Thanks Jesse, should have scrolled down a little further and I would have seen it. Oops!! Nice to see a poster from this era, even if it was cancelled ;)

This poster was for the October 1, 1978 show that unfortunately got cancelled. I pulled up the 1978 calendar which October 1st fell on a Sunday while in 1977 it fell on a Saturday, therefore this was for the planned 1978 gig.

I know this topic is ancient, but it's interesting too that the poster labels the band as 'From England'.
