AC/DC have added two big support acts to their “Rock or Bust” Australian tour

The support act for AC/DC on their “Rock or Bust” Australian tour dates has been confirmed and despite those rumours it’s not Silverchair, Powderfinger or Jet: it’s The Hives and Kingswood.

The Hives’ Nicholaus Arson, Chris Dangerous, Dr. Matt Destruction, Vigilante Carlstroem and Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist are all super hyped for the tour explaining in a press release that it has been a life-long dream to support Acca Dacca. When we were 6 years old in Fagersta, Sweden we were struck for the first time by the lightning that is Rock n Roll. That lightning was AC/DC,” they explained. “Now many years later we find ourselves in a successful rock n roll band and going on tour with them. It couldn’t be better if we made it up. Life rules.” The Hives were last in Australia for the Big Day Out in 2014 and are currently at work on their sixth album.
