AC/DC Announce First Tour Dates of 2015
In AC/DC we trust, and they will bring audiences around the world 'Rock or Bust' in 2015. The veteran rockers have made good on their plan to tour in 2015, revealing the first batch of tour dates in support of the 'Rock or Bust' album.
The group will kick off a European leg of dates on May 5 in Arnhem in the Netherlands. At present, the band has more than 20 shows scheduled through July. Tickets for the shows go on sale as of Dec. 17.
Though AC/DC just finished and released their new album, 'Rock or Bust,' their ability to tour was in question. Longtime guitarist Malcolm Young stepped away from the group at the beginning of their 'Rock or Bust' recording, but Young's nephew Steven has filled in admirably and is expected to be part of the touring lineup.
The status of drummer Phil Rudd though remains in doubt as a series of legal problems has clouded his participation in the 2015 tour dates. The drummer was absent from the band's recent video shoots, with Shogun drummer Rob Richards filling in. At this point, the band has not named a replacement for Rudd and it is not known if Richards would be the guy if Rudd was not available. Regardless of the situation, AC/DC have stressed their commitment to touring in 2015.
