Bayfest Courting AC/DC For 2009 Music Festival
Sarnia, Ontario, Canada's The Observer reports that organizer Michele Stokley has confirmed Bayfest is trying to sign AC/DC for next summer's outdoor music festival.
The Australian rockers announced last week they will tour for the first time in eight years in support of their new album, "Black Ice," which hits stores in October.
"The agency we've always worked with represents (AC/DC)," she said. "They're one of the larger bands we're going after. They're definitely on the wish list. The feelers are already out there."
Landing the rock 'n roll hall-of- famers depends on money, tour dates and whether they'll agree to an outdoor venue.
Stokley said if the band's tour takes them halfway across the world during next July it would prove to be a challenge. But some bands do make the flight back.
"Aerosmith, they were over and played Russia, had five days off and then came to us in Sarnia," she said. "And they loved it here. They hated it in Russia."
