AC/DC ANNOUNCE NORTH AMERICAN ROCK OR BUST TOUR DATES

Brian JohnsonAC/DC have announced the North American leg of their 2015 Rock or Bust World Tour. The late summer stadium trek kicks off on August 22 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA and wraps up on September 28 at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles, CA. More dates could possibly be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets go on sale Monday, February 16 at 10am EST via Ticketmaster.com. The band’s world tour will begin with a European leg that kicks off on May 5 at the Gelredome in Arnhem, Netherlands and runs through July. This past Sunday, the heavy metal icons opened the 57th Annual Grammy Awards with an explosive two-track medley. The band performed their new hit single “Rock or Bust” and their iconic smash “Highway To Hell”. The performance featured the return of former drummer Chris Slade, who was with the band from 1989-1994 and played drums on their 1990 album The Razor’s Edge. Slade is set to accompany the band on their upcoming world tour in light of founding drummer Phil Rudd‘s ongoing legal issues.

AC/DC’s new disc Rock or Bust (Columbia Records) just debuted at #3 on the Billboard TopACDC Rock or Bust 200. Stevie Young, nephew of lead guitarist Angus Young and former rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young, makes his debut with the band in the video. Stevie played rhythm guitar on the new album and will tour with the band in 2015 in place of Malcolm who sadly retired from the band due to illness. The new album was produced by Brendan O’Brien and mixed by Mike Fraser, both of whom worked on the band’s previous effort Black Ice. The disc debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and sold over 784,000 copies in it’s first week of sales. It was one of only two albums the band released that decade (Stiff Upper Lip, 2000). The disc garnered the band the Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance for the track “War Machine”. AC/DC are undeniably one of the greatest music artists of all time. To date, the band has sold over 200 million albums worldwide and have produced some of hard rock and heavy metal’s biggest anthems.  – by Matt Bishop (Top Left Photo Courtesy of John Shearer/Invision/AP)
