According to the Chicago Tribune, between 15 and 20 noise complaints were received from Wrigleyville-area residents about AC/DC’s sold-out concert at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois Tuesday night (September 15).
The band’s performance ran from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., an hour before the ballpark’s 11 p.m. curfew.
The noise calls Tuesday were mainly from residents north and northwest of the ballpark.
It was reported earlier in the week that AC/DC’s concert at Wrigley Field would include the use of pyrotechnics for three songs, with helicopters capturing aerial shots of the band’s performance for future DVD release.
AC/DC’s sixteenth studio album, “Rock Or Bust”, has sold around 547,000 copies since debuting at No. 3 on the Billboard album chart back in December.
It’s the band’s first album without founding guitarist Malcolm Young, who is suffering from dementia. He has been replaced by nephew Stevie Young.
AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was arrested last November at his home in Tauranga on charges of threatening to kill and possession of methamphetamine and cannabis.
Although Rudd played on “Rock Or Bust”, he did not appear in photos or videos for the disc.
One-time AC/DC drummer Chris Slade officially joined the band’s lineup for its performance on the February 8 Grammy Awards telecast. Slade is also behind the kit for the group’s current world tour.
The band’s North American tour will wrap on September 28 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
