AC/DC Will Play at the Grammys
It’s official: AC/DC will play at the Grammy Awards on Feb. 8.
Rumors surfaced a couple weeks ago that the band would perform at the awards ceremony. The Recording Academy issued a press release this morning announcing some of the performers, and AC/DC are among the first confirmed artists on the new list.
The 57th annual Grammy Awards — which will air live on CBS at 8PM ET — will also feature performances by country star Eric Church, young pop singer Ariana Grande, old pop singer Madonna and singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran.
AC/DC’s new album, ‘Rock or Bust,’ was released too late to qualify for any awards this year (the cutoff date is Sept. 30, 2014; the album came out in early December). But their appearance should give fans a taste of their upcoming world tour, which so far has just two U.S. dates confirmed, at the annual Coachella festival April 10 and 17.
