I can think of a bunch of songs I'd rather hear than anything from Black Ice (Problem Child, Rock 'n Roll Damnation, High Voltage, Have a Drink on Me, Shot Down in Flames, etc.). It's a shame that people seeing AC/DC for the first time (a sizable portion of each night's crowd, I imagine) will not be able to see these songs performed live. If AC/DC were a band that tours regularly, I'd have no problem with the set. However I think they owe their fans a greatest hits show ("greatest hits" meaning pretty much everything from their birth through Back in Black- as good as Black Ice is, nothing on it knocks any of the aforementioned songs down on the best of list) with a few decent songs from their later albums thrown in on a rotating basis.
