Ian Magan, who's behind the show in Auckland, says that the Aussie giants are determined to play fair with fans. And he believes that's not happening on ticket site Viagogo, where tickets are on sale for up to $1300, even though the show's date has yet to be announced.
Magan tells the New Zealand Herald: "I have issued them a cease and desist. We will take legal action if they don't comply. AC/DC are very egalitarian. They want each fan to have an equal chance of attending the concert." Read morehere.
Written by Izzy Stradlin, the acoustic track - which originally appeared on 1989's "G N' R Lies" - was a Top 5 US hit for Guns N' Roses, reaching No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100.
McKagan recently published his second book, "How To Be A Man (And Other Illusions)." The book sees the bassist share wisdom he gained through his years with Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver to getting sober after a life of hard living, going on to a successful marriage and a balanced life as a musician and a father.
Bach will publish his autobiography, "18 And Life On Skid Row", on January 19, 2016 via Harper Collins. Watch the videohere.
The 1965 US No. 1 hit went on to be named the "Offical Rock Song Of Ohio" in 1985, and also serves as the official song of Major League Baseball's Cleveland Indians.
The NFL's Cleveland Browns and NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers both play the track at their home games, and the song has been performed by marching bands at Ohio Stadium tenant Ohio State Buckeyes games for decades.
The Ohio stop is the second date on the Stones' Zip Code tour of North America, which opened at San Diego's Petco Park on May 24. The Stones played a rare club show at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles on May 20 as a warm-up to the 15-city stadium tour.
The club date featured what the band billed as a "one-time only set" featuring the original "Sticky Fingers" album in its entirety with additional hits. Check out video of their performance of "Hang On Sloopy"here.
But he's never stopped customizing his gear - a trait he inherited from his dad. Van Halen tells Popular Mechanics: "If it was movable, or turnable, or anything that resembled something that could go up or down, I would mess with it to make the amp run hotter.
"I opened the amp up and saw this thing. I found out later it was a bias control, which controls the power to the output tubes. I'm poking around, and all of a sudden I touch this huge blue thing.
"My God - it was like being punched in the chest by Mike Tyson. My whole body flexed stiff, and it must have thrown me five feet. I'd touched a capacitor. I didn't know they held voltage."
The accident took place after Van Halen's father, who played clarinet and sax, lost a finger and had to customize his own instrument. Read morehere.
No cause of death was given at the time but the Riverside County Coroner's Office has now revealed he had hypertensive atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease which led to a heart attack.
The man who wrote Free's classic track All Right Now had been in good shape, according to his daughter Hannah Fraser, and there had been no sign of his health deteriorating in the weeks leading to his death. Read morehere.
The band's first eight records will be released in three stages, starting June 22 with their self-titled 1970 debut, along with "Paranoid" and 1971's "Master Of Reality."

The controversial 2003 movie charted the near-collapse of the thrash giants as they struggled to deal with James Hetfield's addiction issues and the departure of bassist Jason Newsted, while making eighth album St Anger.
Rock tells Wikimetal: "The movie is just a very small fragment of what happened. You'd have to write a very long book to talk about everything - there should be a documentary on the documentary to get the full story."
He says of his role in proceedings: "They were fragmenting and falling apart. I was a friend more than anything on that record, just trying to keep those guys together." Read morehere.
He made his studio debut with the Finnish band on their 2005 album Are You Dead Yet? Children Of Bodom say in a statement: "Our friend, brother, and guitar player for 12 years, Roope, is no longer with the band. As we parted ways with no bad blood we wish him nothing but the best and thank him for allowing us to share the last 12 years of our lives with him."
They're currently putting the final touches on their ninth album and follow-up to 2013's Halo Of Blood and say Latvala's departure won't have an impact on their plans moving forward. Read morehere.
They previously revealed they were big fans of the HBO show, and recorded the track White Walker for Game Of Thrones compilation Catch The Throne: The Mixtape Vol. 2.
The band met some of the cast and one of the writers at last year's Sonisphere - and that led to the opportunity to appear in the latest episode which was filmed in Belfast last November.
Kelliher tells Alexander Milas: "It just so happened that we were starting a tour and they were shooting a scene in Belfast the day before. So the stars aligned and we were able to fly in a day early, quickly get there and jump into a scene.
"There was a lot of playing dead which contrary to popular belief is not that easy to do. I actually fell asleep, laying down on the ground with my battle axe by the water because I was so jet-lagged."
Kelliher says they didn't get to take any props home but adds: "I did get to sit on the throne and take some photos. That was really amazing. We saw Castle Black from afar."
He reveals many of the extras were fans of the band and once word got out that they were on set, they were swarmed by well-wishers. Read morehere.
"At Your Service" presents the group recorded live in concert last year performing hits from Hagar's 4 Decades Of Rock show. The 18-track set, which mixes Hagar solo tracks with hits by Van Halen and Led Zeppelin - has been promoted to date with the release of two Van Halen covers: "Poundcake" and "When It's Love."
Hagar has been in the headlines recently after original Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth shot down any chance of the band performing Van Hagar tunes when the band hits the road for a summer tour of North America in support of "Tokyo Dome Live In Concert." Read morehere.
Vayrynen says: "No words can explain how excited, grateful and honoured I am to do all these shows with Paradise Lost. The band has been one of my first and biggest influences ever since I was a little kid.
"It's gonna be one hell of a year!" The band have just begun live activities in support of 14th album The Plague Within, to be launched on June 1 via Century Media. Read morehere.
Rolling Stone reports that both albums have been remastered by Other Voices producer Bruce Botnick. The bonus track Treetrunk which originally featured on the B-side of single Get Up And Dance will also be included on Full Circle.
Recording sessions for Other Voices began before Morrison's death in 1971 and Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek shared vocal duties on the album which also featured drummer John Densmore. The trio recorded Full Circle the following year and disbanded in 1973. Read morehere.
And he says once he's recorded enough tracks, he'll release the collection as an album - and reveals Testament's Chuck Billy and Sanctuary's Warrel Dane are on board.
He tells MetalHead Radio: "Every few months I release a single that features a different singer. The first was with Todd and I did one with a new band Untimely Demise that aren't really well known, but I really dug the singer Matt Cuthbertson. It's called Walls Of Blood.
"The third single is with Henning Basse from Metalium. There's one song that's being worked on that Chuck Billy has. I talked to Warrel Dane and I'm gonna get him to do one."
He continues: "I have a few other guys in mind, which I won't mention, because I haven't approached them but these are the guys I have worked with or am working with." Read more and stream the full interviewhere.
Now the Australian outfit have uploaded an alternative promo - featuring puppets. And they call it the "official live video" of the song. It was first aired by mainman Kevin Parker last month and it drew opposing reaction from fans. Some liked the change of style, while others questioned why the band had moved away from psychedelia.
It cause Parker to react: "I wouldn't say making psychedelic music is my focus. That's not the modus operandi for Tame Impala - it's about making music that moves people." Watch the videohere.
BMTH: Live At Wembley Arena was originally set for a March release but was then pushed back until May. Now they've announced that it's delayed again - although no reason or date has been given.
The band say: "Heads up, the Live At Wembley DVD will be coming a bit later than planned this summer. Don't worry, it'll be worth the wait." Check out the new video cliphere.
Wilson says: "Premonitions will cover his time with Charisma Records between 1975-83, including the first four albums in newly created 5.1 surround sound versions.
"I was only able to remix two of these into discrete surround since the multitrack tapes for the other two could not be located. So instead I created surround sound upmixes, which nevertheless came out sounding very immersive and worthwhile.
"All the remixing was supervised and approved by Steve." Read morehere.
The group's 12th album sees frontman David Coverdale re-recording classic songs from the Deep Purple Mark 3 and Mark 4 records he appeared on, including 1974's "Burn" and "Stormbringer", and 1975's "Come Taste The Band."
Whitesnake's 17-song set opened with the Deep Purple classic, "Burn", and mixed 9 tunes from the tribute record alongside a few of the band's own tracks.
"The Purple Album" debuted on the US charts this past week, opening at No. 6 on the Top Current Hard Music Albums, No. 15 on Top Current Rock Albums, No. 43 on Top Current Albums and No. 84 on the Billboard Top 200 Charts. Watch videos from the tour kick offhere.

Frontman Michael Sweet says: "It takes a lot to get me really excited and the new Stryper album Fallen has done it! This is our best in my humble opinion.
"I look at every album as if it may be our last. This keeps me focused on trying to deliver our best and if it is our last (and best) we'll go out on an up note." Read morehere.
The record features vocalists Jeff Scott Soto and Mats Leven, who both sang on 2014 debut I Am The Fire. Also present are Amaranthe's Elize Ryd, Jacob Bunton of Lynam and Adler, and Mats Leven of Yngwie Malmsteen and Candlemass fame.
G says: "As I'm putting the final touches on Brand New Revolution I wanted to give out a bit about the new music. The Quest is the only instrumental on the album and it's a heavy, high energy, technical track.
"I feel the album as a whole has many influences, from classic hard rock and metal, to more modern and current sounds." Read more and check out the song previewhere.
Rockenfield and director and writer Richard Jellerson have launched an Indiegogo campaign seeking $70,000 to finance production. Rockenfield says: "Tale Of A City is a really exciting. I just love the intrigue and fascination about the project - I'm super-excited to be a part of it."
The first episode will concentrate on Boston while later installments will look at New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Atlanta, London, Paris and Rome. Watchhere.
Byford says: "Some of it is quite brutal - but there's quite a lot of melodic stuff on there as well. Every Saxon album is different to the one before because we like to entertain people and we don't really like to write the same song all the time."
He adds of the band's progress: "I have a vocal to do and there's maybe two more guitars and we're finished. So I think the album will be out in October, perhaps even September."
Saxon are currently touring the US with drummer Nigel Glockler back behind the kit after undergoing emergency brain surgery last year. Read morehere.
Nuclear Blast Entertainment's Monte Connor introduced Mader and Hart - and the guitarist says that the group's music is "unique and has its own identity."
Mader adds: "The creative chemistry was so on fire and the music really spoke to me. In all of my years producing I've never been so attached and excited about a developing project.
"It's a mix of brutal metal and melodic epic with cinematic textures." They've also issued a lyric video for the record's title track. View ithere.
"If I could be in any other rock band in the f***ing world," began Dave Grohl, "it would be Thin Lizzy. What a band. We're gonna try something we've never done before and we want to do it for you, special, because we don't do it all the time. Just tonight."
"Jailbreak" was the title track to Thin Lizzy's 1976 album. Considered the group's US breakthrough, it featured their signature song, "The Boys Are Back in Town" alongside "Cowboy Song", "Emerald" and "Running Back", among others. "We just learned that an hour and a half ago," Grohl revealed after the performance.
The Slane stop is part of the Foo Fighters European tour in support of "Sonic Highways", which launched May 25 and wraps up at the Glastonbury Festival on June 26. Check out the jamhere.
The former half of No-Man (a project shared with fellow post-prog artiste Steven Wilson) said: "This is the opening track from Stupid Things That Mean The World, though it was one of the last pieces to be completed for the album. It's partly rooted in some powerful drum patterns Pat Mastelotto [King Crimson] recorded in 2013, but most of the song came together in one late night live session at NAM Studios in February this year. Subsequently, Colin Edwin, Andrew Booker and Bruce Soord made some additions that helped build the tension in the song further. Stephen Bennett - who I co-wrote the song with - created the video, which has a nice 'retro-future' theme running through it that compliments some of the ideas in the lyric."
Besides Mastelotto, the album features contributions from Phil Manzanera and Peter Hammill, among others - as well as various members of the No-Man and Porcupine casts. It was mixed by Bruce Soord (The Pineapple Thief), and comes relatively hot on the heels of his second solo album Abandoned Dancehall Dreams, which came out last year.
"I'd say that the new album is something of a bolder and more dynamic extension of Abandoned Dancehall Dreams," Bowness says. "It's a logical step forward with some surprises, I hope. It's been really exciting working with my live band on most of the pieces and getting some special contributions... Bruce Soord's mixing and additional guitar parts have also taken the material to a higher level, I think." Watch ithere.
Last week the band exclusively revealed the artwork for the follow-up to 2013's Infestissumam via Metal Hammer. In April, the secretive band hinted that Meliora wold feature Papa Emeritus III on vocals.
He's said to be the three-month younger brother of predecessor Emeritus II - although it's thought they'll still be led by their co-founding frontman. They'll head out on tour later this week and will play the Reading and Leeds festivals on August 29 and 30. Check out the album track details and stream the songhere.
