According to the New York Daily News, AC/DC celebrated the end of its “Rock Or Bust” world tour with a party at a New York City steakhouse on Monday, September 12.
The band and “roughly 100 guests” showed up at the Old Homestead Steakhouse for the celebration, which took place in advance of Wednesday night’s performance at Madison Square Garden.
A source at the dinner told the paper that GUNS N’ ROSES singer Axl Rose sat with AC/DC guitarist and leader Angus Young, and told stories about how he used to stop at the restaurant after performing with GUNS N’ ROSES and before hitting the area’s nightclubs” — adding that the area was “rough and loaded with transvestites” back then.
AC/DC‘s itinerary has only two more dates: September 17 in Washington, D.C. and September 20 in Philadelphia.
The rescheduled dates of AC/DC‘s North American tour — which are the band’s first concerts here Rose on lead vocals — kicked off on August 27 at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Angus recently said that he has not made a decision yet regarding the band’s future once the current “Rock Or Bust” tour cycle ends. Following the 2014 retirement of his brother and co-founder Malcolm Young due to dementia, Angus also dealt with the exit of drummer Phil Rudd later that year because of legal problems, and more recently the departure of singer Brian Johnson because of hearing loss and bassist Cliff Williams‘s decision to retire after the tour ends.
Assuming neither Rudd nor Johnson return, Williams‘s exit means that Angus will be the only member remaining from the lineups that recorded classic albums like 1979’s “Highway To Hell”, 1980’s “Back In Black” and 1981’s “For Those About To Rock…We Salute You”.
