Their Black Ice World Tour is on hold while Brian Johnson gets some time to recover from his medical procedure. The rumor is its some sort of throat surgery. The shows affected by this is Phoenix, Las Vegas, Louisville, Kansas City, Des Moines and Milwaukee. It will resume in Washington on October 16th.
The other day at the AC/DC concert in Winnipeg, a 29 year old woman had to be taken out of the concert for “disruptive behaviour.” While she was being taken out, she assaulted one of the police officers! Don’t tell me alcohol was involved. Well of course there was. Damn Problem Child!
Apparently a new CD came out the other day titled “AC/DC Classic Interviews Unauthorized” and while it’s on sale at Amazon, I couldn’t find a track listing or any information on it. Its so weird. I’m sure more information will come out but its just such a mystery.
