AC/DC Unveil North American “Rock Or Bust” 2016 Dates

I think we need to do a kickstarter campaign for some Heavy Metal concert currency and have it emblazoned with resolve that “In Rock We Trust” because it’s the kind of thing that will show a sense of community, honor and remind us to be on point as band after awesome band brings us music that shake the very foundation below our feet. I realize I am being both dramatic and wry at the same time but how could I do anything less when the band AC/DC unveils additional US tour date check out the full press copy below and then I’ll return with closing thoughts.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: What can one say about such a legendary force in Heavy Metal music except isn’t it amazing to find ourselves in the end of the year 2015 and still be able to enjoy a band such as this on the live stage so many decades after their formation. Yeah some members have changed over the years but the fire and spirit of the late great Bon Scott smiles down while raising the horns at their many accomplishments and influences on the music scene around them. It’s safe to say that most Metalheads can sing no less than a dozen AC/DC songs from beginning to end and maybe even more depending on how strong their admiration is. It’s so great to find the band returning for additional dates and “holy smokes NYC” as you are so incredibly fortunate that they are closing out the run at the famous Madison Square Garden. Let me add a not too shameless plug that this is also the 11th anniversary of the launch of PiercingMetal.com so I will be celebrating and rocking eleven times as hard if I should get myself into this sure to be sold out show. What do you readers think of this one? Let me know in the comments section below.
