AC/DC To Start Tour On Halloween
According to The Pulse of Radio, AC/DC will kick off its first world tour in seven years on Halloween (October 31) in Chicago, a source close to the band has told HardDrive Radio. The tour, which is expected to last 18 months, will come in support of the group's new album, "Black Ice", which is due out on October 28. A single titled "Rock & Roll Train" will arrive at radio stations around August 28.
AC/DC will travel to London, England in early August to shoot a video for "Rock & Roll Train".
"Black Ice", which will be sold exclusively at Wal-Mart, is AC/DC's first new studio effort since 2000's "Stiff Upper Lip". It was recorded at a Canadian studio with PEARL JAM and BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN producer Brendan O'Brien.
The 1977 AC/DC song "Let There Be Rock" will be featured in the new Rock Band 2 video game, due out in September. This will mark the band's first and so far only contribution to a video game soundtrack.
