AC/DC's concert at the Apollo Theatre in Glasgow, Scotland on 30 April 1978, was used for the bulk of the recorded material that appeared on the album. It can be clearly heard during "The Jack" when Scott exclaimed "Any virgins in Glasgow?" This concert will also be remembered for the encore when AC/DC came back on stage dressed in the Scottish Football strip. The songs "Dog Eat Dog" and "Fling Thing" were also performed during the night of the concert but eventually removed from the album. "Rocker" was also performed. The live rendition of "Dog Eat Dog" was released as the B-side of the single "Whole Lotta Rosie/Dog Eat Dog" in November 1978. It was later released worldwide on the 2009 box set Backtracks. The songs "Fling Thing" and "Rocker" (with its complete guitar solo) appeared only on video releases.
The whole concert was filmed but the complete footage has never been released. Eventually, "Riff Raff" and "Fling Thing/Rocker" segments were made available on the AC/DC Family Jewels DVD. Footage was also used on the "Rock 'n' Roll Damnation" promotional clip also available in Family Jewels. Also more concert footage was later made available on the Highway to Hell Live Concert DVD. More segments from the concert (the songs "Rock 'n' Roll Damnation", "Dog Eat Dog" and "Let There Be Rock") were made available on the DVD Plug Me In, released in 2007, a couple months after the previously mentioned Highway to Hell DVD. The segment "Bad Boy Boogie" was included on the bonus disc on the three-disc edition of the DVD.
Despite the fact that there was no official release of the concert, there is a DVD available called "Let There Be Rock" from the German FNM Label.
