AC/DC Will Kick Off New U.S. ‘Rock or Bust' Tour in 2016


AC/DC will launch the second U.S. leg of their Rock or Bust tour on February 2, the group has announced. The first stop is the Tacoma Dome, in Tacoma, Washington. The tour will run through March before concluding on April 4 in New York City’s Madison Square Garden.

Tickets go on sale December 18. You can see the full itinerary below.

AC/DC’s 2015 tour for Rock or Bust was their first without founding rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young, who left the band in 2014 due to dementia. His position has been taken over by his and lead guitarist Angus Young’s nephew, Stevie Young.

The earlier tour run also saw the return of drummer Chris Slade, who performed in AC/DC in the late Eighties and early Nineties. Slade replaced Phil Rudd, whose position with the band first came into question in 2014 when he missed video and photo shoots. He spent part of the past year in the New Zealand courts addressing charges of attempting to procure a murder and drug possession. The charge of attempting to procure a murder was withdrawn, and in July he was sentenced to eight months of home detention.

The video below shows the current lineup performing “Rock or Bust” and “Shoot to Thrill” live this past July 4 at Wembley Stadium, in London.
