Get your earplugs ready: AC/DC is coming to high-def with Sony BMG's October Blu-ray release of the seminal concert epic 'Live at Donington.'

Filmed at the famed Donington Castle by Grammy-winning music video helmer David Mallet, 'AC/DC: Live at Donington' has been hailed by some as the most over-the-top rock spectacle ever staged, including no less than firing cannons, a giant inflatable "hells bells" floating above the stage and a 18-strong setlist chock full of the legendary headbanger's greatest hits.

Filmed in 35mm Panavision with 26 cameras, 'Live at Donington' will be presented in 1080p video (codec TBA), with audio specs and supplemental specs yet to be announced (though we can only hope that one of the high-resolution audio formats will be a given). We'll keep you posted.

Sony BMG has set a $29.98 MSRP for the Blu-ray.
