In a recent announcement it has been confirmed that legendary rock band AC/DC will be headlining the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival this year. The festival will take place in mid April stating the 10th and ultimately ending on the 19th.
This is good news for the band due to their recent hardships with the retirement of guitarist and founding member Malcolm Young as well as the court hearing of drummer Phil Rudd. Despite the setbacks, the band has pushed forward a tour to coincide with the release of their most recent album, “Rock or Bust” that hit stores on December 2nd.
This is also bittersweet for fans thanks to the recent line up changes that had to be made. With the absence of Rudd, Angus Young spoke about finding a replacement drummer for the band.
“The guy’s got to be in condition to do this job, you know. We don’t want to be in that position of, you know canceling things, you know. Cause if you put together a lot of stuff, you know, you don’t want somebody saying, ‘Oh yeah, maybe I’ll be here, maybe I won’t.’ I’ll say this: there’ll be a good drummer there.”
Finally, news of a more somber tone, The Sydney Morning Herald has said that Malcolm is now under full-time care at his nursing home and has lost short term memory.
