According to Hits Daily Double, word from sources in inside The Recording Academy is that AC/DC, Madonna and U2 have been booked to perform at the 57th annual Grammy Awards, set to take place on February 8, 2015 at Staples Center in Los Angeles and broadcast on CBS at 8 p.m. ET.
As previously reported, AC/DC is also rumored to headline the 2015 Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival, along with Jack White and Drake. Coachella is scheduled for April 10-12 and April 17-19, 2015, in Indio, California. AC/DC will be on the road for much of 2015, touring in support of its new album, “Rock Or Bust”, which arrived on December 2.
It has been a tough year for AC/DC, starting with guitarist and founder Malcolm Young‘s retirement due to being afflicted with dementia.
Then drummer Phil Rudd was arrested in early November on charges of threatening to kill and drug possession.
Rudd allegedly threatened to kill a contractor and his daughter, according to New Zealand prosecutors.
The allegations were made public December 5. On December 2, Rudd pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Rudd did not appear in AC/DC‘s two new videos nor any of the band’s latest promotional photos, and his status in the group remains unclear.
