Live at River Plate is the third live album by Australian hard rock band AC/DC, released on 19 November 2012.[2]

The album was recorded during AC/DC's Black Ice World Tour on 4 December 2009 at River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires. Video footage from the same concert was previously officially released in May 2011 on DVD and Blu-ray as Live at River Plate.

Critical and commercial response

The album received mixed to positive reviews from publications such as Allmusic, for which Stephen Thomas Erlewine stated that while the band's vocalist, "Brian Johnson[,] sounds a little worse for wear" still "the brothers Young, Cliff Williams, and Phil Rudd remain as solid as a boulder". Newer songs such as "Rock 'n' Roll Train", in Erlewine's opinion, fit in perfectly alongside AC/DC's earlier work that that group continues to play. He praised the band overall for providing "a heavy dose of heavy rock & roll" even after decades of performing.[1]

With the release of Live at River Plate in the U.K., the top ten of the U.K. Rock & Metal Singles chart was composed of all AC/DC songs. "Back in Black", "Highway to Hell", "You Shook Me All Night Long", "Thunderstruck", "Whole Lotta Rosie", "Shoot to Thrill", "Hells Bells", "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)", "For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)", and "T.N.T." all charted within the top ten in corresponding order. In particular, several songs in the chart were actually the studio versions.[3] This resulted from the move of having all of AC/DC's albums being re-released on iTunes at the time of Live at River Plate's release.[4]
