AC/DC gig prompts complaints

Australian rock band AC/DC have come under fire after cranking their guitar amps up too loud.

br /> The group, who are best known for hits such as Highway to Hell and Long Way to the Top, played a gig at the Olympic Stadium in Munich last Friday.

However, it has emerged that some people living in the area believed the gig, attended by about 70,000 fans, was excessively loud.

Indeed, some of those who complained were 12 miles away from the venue at the time of the gig, but were still disturbed by sounds such as Angus Young's Gibson SG.

Despite the number of complaints - over 100 - no action is to be taken against the band, and the gig was allowed to continue uninterrupted.

AC/DC are currently on a world tour to promote their latest record, Black Ice, which is their first studio release since Stiff Upper Lip in 2000.
