AC/DC Moneytalks video filmed on this day 21 years ago
AC/DC filmed the video for the release of ‘Moneytalks’ at the Philadelphia Spectrum in Philadelphia during ‘The Razors Edge’ Tour on this day, November 6th 1990.
Prior to the gig which was due to take place at the Spectrum that evening, 200 fans were invited to take part in the video shoot which was directed by David Mallet.
The song itself is about the influence of money and was recently chosen for one of the movie trailers for the latest Brad Pitt film, Moneyball. It is also one of AC/DC’s biggest hits, entering the top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100, the UK singles charts, and the Australian ARIA Singles Chart. It is still the band’s highest charting single in the United States, at number 23. During the supporting world tour, thousands of “Angus Bucks” were dropped on the audience during the song.
The song was written by Malcolm and Angus Young and produced by Bruce Fairbairn and released as a single in December 1990.
