They were due to play in Oslo that night at Valle Hovin but a plane malfunction in Berlin ensured the band's late arrival on Scandanavian soil -- and an 11PM curfew meant the Australian rockers had to stop short of their usual set, according to Contactmusic.
Kristin Svendsen, a representative for promoters Live Nation Norway, said that another plane had to be sourced to make sure the band got to Norway.
He said, "AC/DC's plane had a malfunction in Berlin, and it took some time to charter another plane."
It was 9.45PM before the band took to the stage, leaving them only one hour and 15 minutes until the designated curfew time.
Asbjørn Slettemark, host of 'Lydverket' -- the biggest music show on Norwegian TV -- told of the shortcuts the band took to ensure they kept on time, reports Blabbermouth.
He said, "It was a classic AC/DC concert, but it was obvious that the band rushed through some segments. Both Angus' [Young] guitar solo on 'Let There Be Rock' and his stripping segment on 'The Jack' was shorter than usual. I don't think people minded that, though, as those sections often get a little overlong. But people were really bummed out about AC/DC not playing 'For Those About to Rock."
