AC/DC TIPPED FOR SUNCORP BLITZ:
January 22, 2008
With the sounds of The Police still ringing over Paddo, speculation is mounting over who is next to take the Suncorp Stadium stage. And we don’t mean odd-bod violinist Andre Rieu.
AC/DC fans, prepare to rejoice. An Acca Dacca tour has been rumoured for years, but industry insiders reckon the kings of hard rock will hit the road this year, including a Suncorp blitzkreig.
And local promoters salivating over Led Zeppelin are on the phones to Canada. Following the band’s London reunion gig, Toronto-based promoter Michael Cohl is reportedly stitching up a Led Zep tour. The cost? $200 million for North America alone.
But with Zep singer Robert Plant touring with recent collaborator Alison Krauss in April and May, a Led Zep jaunt to Oz could take place next year.
Former Sunday Mail music writer and Led Zep biographer Ritchie Yorke, who caught the band’s London gig, said: “They have a very healthy sense of their place in rock history. But they’re now 60-ish . . . so if they’re ever going to do it, this is the time.”
