AC/DC- gig posters books




After watching a mindblowing AC/DC gig performance at Wembly Arena, I stumbled upon past AC/DC gig posters. I like the warning "people of a nervous disposition strongly advised not to attend". A couple of books I am interested in buying Cult rock posters and Gig Posters:rock show art of the 21st century.
