AC/DC RUMORED TO HEADLINE COACHELLA FESTIVAL
AC/DC is rumoured to headline the 2015 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, along with Jack White and Drake.
Coachella is scheduled for April 10th to the 12th and April 17th to the 19th, 2015, in Indio, California.
AC/DC will be on the road for much of 2015, touring in support of its new album, Rock or Bust, which arrived on December 2nd.
The album is projected to sell between 135,000 and 145,000 copies in the first week of release. If the prediction is accurate, the sales would be a big step down from the numbers from their last album, 2008’s Black Ice. That disc topped the sales charts in 29 countries and sold 784,288 copies in the first week.
It has been a tough year for the band, starting with guitarist and founder Malcolm Young’s retirement due to being afflicted with dementia.
Then drummer Phil Rudd was arrested in early November on charges of threatening to kill and drug possession.
Rudd allegedly threatened to kill a contractor and his daughter, according to New Zealand prosecutors.
The allegations were made public Friday, December 5th. On December 2nd, Rudd pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Rudd did not appear in AC/DC’s two new videos nor any of the band’s latest promotional photos, and his status in the group remains unclear.
