AC/DC to headline Coachella festival

AC/DC will headline the 2015 Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival this spring.

Touring in support of their new album, “Rock Or Bust”, the band will headline on Friday April 10 and Friday April 17.

The two-weekend event – set for April 10-12 and April 17-19 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California – will also see Jack White (Saturdays) and Drake (Sundays) top the bill.

Joining AC/DC on the Friday dates are a variety of artists, including Steely Dan, Interpol and Tame Impala.

It’s the first confirmed North American date for AC/DC, who recently revealed plans for the launch of a European tour May 5 in Arnhem, Netherlands; more shows are expected to be announced soon.

The concerts will feature new addition Stevie Young, nephew of guitarist Angus Young and retired AC/DC founder Malcolm Young.
