    New to this thread but I am really hoping someone can help me. I am looking for some information, confirmation really, on an AC/DC concert at Maple Leaf Gardens in December 1981.

    I am positive that the opening act for this show was The Clash, and not Midnight Flyer. I seem to recall it was a last minute switch. I have been searching the internet, band websites, and youtube and cannot find any evidence to support this. I vividly remember the announcer saying something like “skinheads, punk rockers, pill poppers, something something … The Clash” and they opened with London Calling. Please tell me that I am not crazy and that this amazing concert did actually happen as I remember it. Maybe you were there too…

    Unlikely but not impossible.
    The Clash were recording the "Combat Rock" album in NYC in November ans December 1981.
    Reading Maximum RNR and a snippet from an interview with Paul their bassist at the RNR Hall of Fame, he didn’t know who Ac/dc was. Seems odd that they would forget opening for them.

    I think you might be getting confused. The Clash supported The Who's farewell tour in 1982 and did open with London Calling.
    The Clash, one of the most overrated bands ever?
