    Today, Rolling Stone reports that veteran rockers AC/DC will return to the U.S. for the second leg of their Rock or BustTour next year. The tour starts in early February in Tacoma, Washington and runs through April, culminating at New York City's Madison Square Garden. Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 18th.

    The story continues, "The first run of Rock or Bust gigs signaled the return of drummer Chris Slade, who played with the group in the late Eighties and early Nineties and filled the shoes of the beleaguered Phil Rudd. The latter drummer, who joined the group in 1975, has spent much of the last year in New Zealand's court system dealing with charges ranging from drug possession to threatening to kill. In July, he was sentenced to eight months of home detention. In August, he told reporters in New Zealand that he wanted to 'get my job back, get back on the road and make a lot of money.'

    The tour also marked the return of guitarist Stevie Young, who has replaced founding rhythm guitarist (and uncle) Malcolm Young. The elder guitar player has been suffering from dementia and is no longer able to tour. Stevie, who played on Rock or Bust, previously filled in for Malcolm on the band's 1988 tour for their Blow Up Your Video album when the guitarist was battling alcoholism."
