AC/DC wrapped up their Rock or Bust tour on Tuesday night in Philadelphia, and while the concert was bassist Cliff Williams’ last with the group, it was special for another reason as well. AlternativeNation.net has learned that the concert was professionally filmed, and is expected to be released in the future. A filming notice said, ‘The recording may be released in theatrical, broadcast television, home video and/or any and all media.’
AC/DC’s now former bassist Cliff Williams recently discussed his retirement in a video.
“It’s time for me to step out, that’s all,” says Cliff in the video, while acknowledging the band’s recent line-up changes, specifically the departures of long-time members Malcolm Young, Phil Rudd, and Brian Johnson.
“I’m happy,” he continued. “I just need family time, just chill out and not do this.
“I couldn’t have asked for anything more – being with the people I’m with and have been, being in this situation with this band, playing this music.”
There are many big names rumored for the vacant bassist slot, and AC/DC are expected to eventually record a new album and tour again with Axl Rose remaining the group’s lead singer. Guns N’ Roses have dates scheduled later this year in South America, and recently filmed their performances at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
