With a headlining slot already booked at Coachella, it was almost inevitable that AC/DC would bring its thunderous Aussie rock to the masses with a proper tour. The group announced today that it will stop at AT&T Park this September as part of its “Rock or Bust” word tour.
Tickets for the Sept. 25 show at AT&T Park go on sale Feb. 15. Let’s hope the show is timed perfectly to set the tone for another World Series appearance by the Giants.
AC/DC is back on tour to promote the band’s December album Rock Or Bust, its first release since 2008’s Black Ice. It is also the band’s first album without founding member Malcolm Young, who is suffering from dementia and was replaced by rhythm guitarist Stevie Young. The band is also without drummer Phil Rudd, who is facing legal issues in New Zealand related to alleged drug use.
AC/DC’s first TV performance in 14 years was Sunday, when the band opened the Grammy awards broadcast. Tenacious D laughably won the award for best heavy metal album that night.
It is already shaping up to be a busy concert season at AT&T Park with Billy Joel also scheduled to perform in September.
