AC/DC Take Preemptive Move Against Counterfeiters

(hennemusic) AC/DC have reportedly filed a federal lawsuit to block all non-authorized sales of its merchandise during their upcoming US tour. TMZ reports the band - who earned $180 million on the Rock Or Bust world tour last year - have taken the preemptive move against counterfeiters for US shows starting next week.

"Y'know, most of the those guys you see hawking t-shirts and hats outside the arena - the band's filed a federal lawsuit to get cops to shut them down," says TMZ. "The tour starts February 2 in Tacoma, and they're asking the court to launch a full scale attack - sending US Marshals and cops to the Tacoma Dome to arrest all offenders and seize all bogus goods. They're asking for the same show of force in other cities too."

The tour marks the return of guitarist Stevie Young and drummer Chris Slade to the lineup following the retirement of founder Malcolm Young and a series of legal issues faced by longtime member Phil Rudd. Read more here.
