AC/DC ANNOUNCE OPENING ACTS FOR NEW ZEALAND TOUR
December 9, 2009
Kiwi rock acts Shihad and The Checks will open for hard rocking Australian band AC/DC on their highly anticipated New Zealand tour next year.
The bands will perform at all three of AC/DC’s New Zealand tour dates: January 28 and 30 at Westpac Trust Stadium in Wellington; and at Western Springs in Auckland on February 4.
Promoter Garry Van Egmond said the bands were an “awesome fit” for AC/DC.
“New Zealand will never have and probably never will again see a rock extravaganza of this calibre. It’s huge. It’s not just a concert. It’s an event.”
