According to the article, the final Motley Crue concert will take place in Los Angeles on December 31st. "I hope we can have our final after-party at the Whisky a Go Go on the Sunset Strip where we began 34 years ago if it hasn't been torn down by then," said Neil. "It would be a fitting place to celebrate the beginning and the end." The iconic venue on the Sunset Strip was where the band got its start in 1981.

AC/DC Star's Grammys Appearance In Doubt

(hennemusic) The status of AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd's availability for the band's performance at next month's Grammy Awards is in question due to the conditions of his bail. The International Business Times reports the February 8 Grammys appearance falls two days prior to Rudd's return to a New Zealand court to face multiple charges stemming from his November 6 arrest. Part of Rudd's bail conditions is to reside in his Tauranga home, which may make it difficult for the drummer to leave the country for the event in Los Angeles. The day the situation made headlines around the world, AC/DC released a statement saying, "We've only become aware of Phil's arrest as the news was breaking. We have no further comment. Phil's absence will not affect the release of our new album Rock or Bust and upcoming tour next year."

AC/DC To Rock The Grammy Awards

(Classic Rock) AC/DC will perform during next month's Grammys ceremony on February 8, it's been confirmed. Described as "music's biggest night," the 57th Grammy Awards ceremony takes place at LA's Staples Centre and it'll be broadcast live on US network CBS. The show also features Madonna, Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande and Eric Church. It'll be AC/DC's first live appearance since Malcolm Young was forced to retire as a result of his dementia, to be replaced by nephew Stevie Young. It's also been revealed that the mainman was treated for lung cancer before he bowed out. But it's still not known who will be playing drums, since Phil Rudd faces continued legal troubles after being accused of threatening to kill. Despite facing seven years in jail if found guilty, Rudd said last month: "I'm going back to work with AC/DC - and I don't care who likes it and who doesn't."
