AC/DC Joining The Festival Rounds?

Written by Mike Hohnen on June 15, 2012

Though the rock gods are known for their notorious ‘no festival’ policy, Triple M‘s James Young has upped the anti, insisting that the gang are good to go, practically waving their hands in front of Big Day Out organisers.

“Following the band’s ‘body-breaking’ two-year Black Ice world tour, Brian Johnson says the ‘no festival’ policy is a thing of the past, which says to me, ‘C’mom organisers of the Big Day Out!’, Young has stated.

As much as we all want it to be true, that doesn’t necessarily make it so. Being one of the biggest bands of all time, AC/DC have been scares on the festival scene playing the Monsters Of Rock and more recently a rare appearance at Download in 2010. Young continues to say he “can see Angus and Malcolm lying back having a cup of tea saying ‘I’m not ready for a two-year tour’… so someone rings up and says we’ll pay you as much money as you can imagine to come out and bang out a show every third day!”-

It’s not such a farout concept, really. Festivals are the current hot spot – well, the ones that last that is. And with their peers Black Sabbath joining the rounds in Europe, there’s really no reason why Acca Dacca can’t do the same.

One thing’s for sure: if this is true, you can almost picture the battle Soundwave and Big Day Out will have to coax the rock giants into their respective camps. Either way, we win!
