AC/DC's only planned live date of the year will be a rare small venue show March 11 at New York's 3,500-capacity Roseland Ballroom. The audience will be filled entirely with contest winners, invited guests, and Epic Records/Sony Music staffers. "It's going to be a weird combination," guitarist Malcolm Young tells Billboard.com. "We'll have all the real fans up front, and all the execs in the balcony. It'll be fun, because it's a small venue, and, ya know, we want to rip it up a bit for them."
More details on ticket opportunities are available on the band's official Web site. As previously reported, today (Feb. 18) crowns AC/DC's new Epic deal with the release of remastered, extensively repackaged copies of the albums "Back in Black," "Live" (single- and double-disc versions), "Highway to Hell," "High Voltage," and "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap."
On April 8, Epic will roll out new editions of "Who Made Who," "Let There Be Rock," "The Razor's Edge," "For Those About To Rock," and "Powerage." Reissues of "If You Want Blood You Got It," "Flick of the Switch," "Fly on the Wall," "'74 Jailbreak," and "Blow Up Your Video" follow on May 20. All of the reissues utilize Sony's proprietary ConnecteD technology to unlock special online content created for each release.
Also hitting stores today courtesy of Image Entertainment is the DVD "Rockmasters -- AC/DC," capturing an Oct. 27, 1977, concert in London. The video finds the band, at the time fronted by the late Bon Scott, running through such favorites as "Let There Be Rock," "T.N.T.," and "Bad Boy Boogie."
