Chris V.’s AC/DC Diary: “AC/DC LIVE” Is Released 25 Years Ago Today!

It was on this day (October 27th, 1992) when AC/DC released their 18th international album, “AC/DC LIVE.”  It came out in 2 versions, on a double album, and on a 2 CD special collector’s edition.  Both were released on the same day.  The tracks on the album and CD are recordings from shows during their “Razors Edge” tour.  ‘AC/DC Live‘ would contain recordings from the shows at Castle Donnington, Glasgow, Moscow, and Edmonton.  ‘AC/DC Live‘ was also released with a video/DVD, “Live at Donnington.”  The album was released on ATCO Records.

The album, ‘AC/DC LIVE‘ is basically a documentation of the ‘Razors Edge‘ tour.  A huge tour for the band which included 162 shows in over 23 countries!  The album would go on to sell over two million copies here in the United States alone. By December of that year, 1992, it would sell 600,000 copies in France, which would be the best selling album in that country since ‘For Those About to Rock.’
