It was on this day (November 29th, 1981) when AC/DC played at the Richfield Coliseum for the first time. The show landed on a Sunday night and for $10 bucks you got to see ‘The Thunder From Down Under!’ It was the 1st leg of their North American “For Those About To Rock” Tour.  They would eventually play the Coliseum a total of 7 times between the years of 1981 – 1991. This would be only the 2nd time that their new front man Brian Johnson would come to Cleveland and handle the duties of Lead Vocals. He was here the year before (October 1, 1980) when they played at Public Hall while on their “Back In Black” tour.  Let’s check out the set list:
