Has AC/DC’s First North American Tour Date Been Revealed?
North American AC/DC fans were undoubtedly upset when the first announced dates on the tour in support of ‘Rock or Bust’ tour turned out to be only for Europe. But if new reports are accurate, the band is looking to hit this continent in the late-summer.
According to Lapresse, they will be playing on the Plains of Abraham in Quebec City on Sept. 2, 2015. However, neither the band nor the people behind the Quebec City Summer Festival would confirm the date.
North American dates are not the only questions circulating within the band right now. Most pressing is the future of drummer Phil Rudd, who is facing trial for drug possession and threatening to kill two people in his hometown of Tauranga, New Zealand. Rudd has said that he will play, but Angus Young said that “it’s kind of a question mark” whether Rudd will be involved.
In the above video, Young and bassist Cliff Williams spoke with Belgium’s Studio Brussels about how performing helps keep the material fresh after 40 years. “We get a big thrill doing that,” Young said. “Because the audience is part of what we do, and we feed off the audience. And we’ll find out…when we appear live on stage — that’s when we’re gonna find [if] these songs work. Do they like these songs?”
