AC/DC’s health concerns and Jonas Brothers’ holiday plans top the daily tour recap for September 28, as compiled by TicketNews.
Australian hard rock crew AC/DC postponed the first six dates of its late fall 2009 tour of North America. The delays came after singer Brian Johnson underwent an unspecified medical procedure and was ordered to rest by his doctor.
In other tour news, Jonas Brothers will be launching a holiday jaunt this December with their 12 Days of Christmas Tour. It appears, though, that the sibling trio’s dates were leaked earlier than intended by Live Nation, since the tour producer quickly removed evidence of the planned performances from its site.
Those are the complete tour announcements for this Monday. Check out highlights of the day’s other updates in brief below:
