AC/DC Announces American Tour, Forced Off Stage In New Zealand

AC/DC have announced the dates for a new 2016 American leg of their AC/DC's "Rock or Bust" World Tour and the band was forced from the stage after two songs into their concert at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington, New Zealand this past week, according to the NZ Herald.

Strong winds and rain caused technical problems at the show forcing the band to leave the stage for 40 minutes, but despite the delay the outlet reports that the show drew rave reviews.

Local promoter Sandra Roberts explained why the band was forced to leave the stage, "there's high wind driving rain into the stadium so a bit of water has got into some of the electrical equipment." Check out some footage from the show here.
