AC/DC To Hold ‘Rock or Bust’ Listening Party in New York
Two weeks before the Dec. 2 release of 'Rock or Bust,' AC/DC fans will be treated to a sneak preview of their first album in six years. The band will throw a listening party next week in the Grand Ballroom at New York's Webster Hall this Tuesday (Nov. 18) at 7:00PM.
"Join the legion of AC/DC diehards for an unforgettable night featuring the premiere of AC/DC’s new album 'Rock or Bust,' special surprises and more," reads the event information at Ticketweb. "All attendees will receive a limited edition commemorative t-shirt, as well as a chance to win prize packages including a signed Angus Young guitar."
The event is free, with tickets available via Ticketweb. But act quickly. AC'DC's last album, 'Black Ice,' sold two million copies in America. The Grand Ballroom at Webster Hall has a capacity of 1,500 people.
'Rock or Bust' will be the first AC/DC album without Malcolm Young, who was forced into retirement due to dementia. Last week, drummer Phil Rudd was arrested on drug possession charges and threatening to kill someone. Yesterday, Angus Young said that Rudd's status in the band is "kind of a question mark. But if we're touring, there will be a drummer in place. Put it that way."
