AC/DC Tour Rumors
If you have never heard of rock and roll legends AC/DC, then I would like you to do me a small favor: please kindly open your eyes and take your fingers out of your ears. No matter what country you live in, most likely you have heard about this band time and time again since you were born! And it comes as no surprise that the group (who is named after electric currents to express their high energy) is still kicking strong and rocking out for fans all over the planet. And they plan to entertain us again this year!
Brothers Angus and Malcolm Young (both guitarists for the band) were born in the 1950’s in Glasgow, Scotland. When they were children, their family moved to Australia where the boys would be introduced to the rock and roll music scene. It was also in the outback that they would meet front-man Bon Scott (who would later be replaced by Brian Johnson after Scott’s tragic death), bassist Mark Evans, and drummer Phil Rudd after a New Years Eve show in 1973. And so was born the most successful Rock and Roll band in history, AC/DC.
For the next 40 years (that’s right, 40 years) the Australian-based group would be plastered everywhere at every turn, from sold-out concerts, to talk shows. And in their spare time they have taken time out to record in the studio, appear in movies with Howard Stern, and even record the soundtrack album ‘Who Made Who‘ for Stephen King’s 1986 film ‘Maximum Overdrive‘. That album featured the big hit, “Hell’s Bells“, and went multiplatinum. They have released 27 albums to date, been on 22 tours, and in 2003 they were officially inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame!
I’m sorry, make that 23 tours! You heard correctly, they aren’t done! Far from it!
At the end of 2014, AC/DC announced 22 tour dates for their upcoming “Rock Or Bust” sweep of the globe to promote their newest album which has already gained worldwide exposure! This goes right along with the seemingly never-sleeping quartet’s M.O; since they formed, they have never gone more than 5 years without a tour, making this their 23rd. And it seems that, for this tour, the band is once again going back pay respect for their earliest roots!
Right now, the only venues listed are an array of performances all over Europe, including the Young brothers’ homeland of Glasgow. This is not unusual for the rock gods. Every tour they do, they seem to like traveling all over Europe, doing their best to have no fan left behind. But followers in the states may be wondering if they will get stood up on this run. I don’t think you have anything to worry about.
Keep in mind, that when AC/DC says “world tour” they really mean WORLD tour! On average for each one, they will play 100+ concerts in over 10 countries worldwide. And since 1977, they have never gone on a single tour without visiting their friends in the good old U.S of A! So, even though it is not set in stone yet, it is safe to say that the group will probably be honoring this side of the globe with their presence in the coming year.
If you are still worried that they may bypass us, they ARE scheduled to play at this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April. The 3-day event takes place in California, and features a weekend of big name performers and budding artists. AC/DC is scheduled to play on the first day.
If all of this talk of upcoming shows isn’t too much to take in all at once, don’t miss AC/DC at the 2015 Grammy Awards, which airs on Sunday, February 8th! It was recently announced that the group will be performing and sharing the stage with a list of other musical icons like Madonna and Ariana Grande!
AC/DC remains a force (literally) that refuses to quit. They are regarded as the most successful and long-running rock and roll band of all time, and with their high energy performances continuing to deliver, they have long ago secured themselves as a household name. And it looks like 2015 is going to be just as AC/DC filled as EVER!

AC/DC Tour News | Will They Ever Tour Again?
Rumors are swirling around AC/DC right now, many saying that the band may not be back at all this year, or any year (Billboard).
Earlier this year, Brian Johnson said that the band is heading back to the studio to record new material in May and that they may go on tour in celebration of their 40-year anniversary. Currently, however, the rockers are back home in Australia and founding member Malcolm Young, 61, is with his family. “He is believed to be unable to continue playing, although there has not been any explanation why,” says The Sydney Herald.
Entertainment commentator Peter Ford said on the subject: “The suggestion is being put to me that tour will never happen and we will never see AC/DC perform again or record again.” His interview fueled rumors that one of the band members is seriously ill. As they have a pact that no replacements would ever be made should one of them have to leave the band, this may mean that the band will hang up its career for good.
No statements or explanations have been released from the band’s label Alberts.
So far, sources close to the band have told Billboard that the rumors are just rumors. Only time will tell.
