AC/DC’s sixteenth studio album, “Rock Or Bust”, has sold around 543,000 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 He has been replaced by nephew Stevie Young.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.
