Throwback Concert: AC/DC at New Haven Coliseum 1985

99.1 PLR celebrates 50 years! This week we are celebrating another great year in our history: 1985!

That year PLR presented AC/DC at New Haven Coliseum. AC/DC hit the road in ’85 to support its tenth studio album, “Fly On The Wall,” which featured such singles as Danger, Sink The Pink and Shake Your Foundations. It was also their first album and tour with new drummer Simon Wright, who replaced longtime member Phil Rudd. Joining AC/DC at the Coliseum was special guest Yngwie Malmsteen.

Today we look back when AC/DC rocked New Haven in 1985…
