For $9, you get one ticket for standing-room-only general admission on Saturday, April 6, at 9 p.m. (up to a $17.33 value, including all fees). Doors open at 8 p.m.
Back in Black has set eardrums thrumming with spot-on renditions of AC/DC songs for more than a decade, earning the respect of diehard fans, fellow rockers such as Mötley Crüe's Vince Neil, and concert authority Live Nation, who picked the band to headline its own House of Blues tour. From under vocalist Darren Caperna’s driver's cap resounds an imitation of the late Bon Scott’s signature growl and Brian Johnson's sandpaper screech, while lead guitarist Mike Mroz mimics Angus Young’s iconic strut to the green room. Along with gigs opening for Cheap Trick, Blue Oyster Cult, and Foghat, the band has had the honor of recording covers of "T.N.T." and "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)" for the soundtracks of Napoleon Dynamite and Garage Days. Fellow arena-rock connoisseurs Subdivided – A Tribute to Rush opens the show with a salute to the Canadian prog-rock heroes responsible for "Limelight," "Tom Sawyer," and the social acceptance of the glockenspiel.

House of Blues Houston
To keep the spirit of its musical roots ever near, House of Blues Houston keeps a metal box of mud from the Delta Mississippi beneath its stage and proudly displays the traditional crazy quilt. As the only venue in the revered chain to be built vertically rather than free floating, House of Blues Houston stands as a pillar of entertainment in the Houston Pavilions complex. The hot spot’s Bronze Peacock Room commemorates Houston's rich history and the blues clubs where Lightnin' Hopkins and Big Mama Thornton held sway, and features an enormous hand-painted mural depicting other local legends such as Albert Collins and Johnny "Guitar" Watson.
