Update: AC/DC Reschedules Previously Postponed U.S. Shows

Update 6/5/2016:

AC/DC has announced a slate of rescheduled U.S. shows previously postponed when lead vocalist Brian Johnson left the band in March on the advice of doctors.

Conflicting reports had Johnson unceremoniously removed from the band, while Johnson stated it was merely temporary until he rectified his hearing issues.

Meanwhile, the Aussie band has continued with Axl Rose as vocalist and is currently touring Europe.

Original post:

Australian rockers AC/DC announced a second leg of their Rock or Bust tour. The 20-night tour includes two stops in New York – March 29 at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo and April 4 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.


The tour kicks off on Groundhog Day, Feb. 2, in Tacoma, Washington and finishes up on April 4 in New York City. The new dates take them to parts of the country they skipped over on their tour earlier this year.

From a press release from First Niagara Center:

The American Tour date announcement comes after a massive year for the band, with them kicking off the 57th annual Grammy Awards, headlining at Coachella, and completing 17 shows in Europe, 14 shows in North America and 11 shows in Australia/New Zealand.

The first leg of the Rock or Bust tour saw some changes to the AC/DC lineup. Former drummer Chris Slade, who played with them in the ’80s and ’90s, returned to replace Phil Rudd. Stevie Young filled in for his uncle, Malcolm Young, who is no longer able to tour due to his battle with dementia.

Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday, Dec. 18.
