According to Bay Of Plenty Times, AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd will open a harborside restaurant named Phil's Place in Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand with a launch party mid-September.Rudd, who has lived in Tauranga for more than 25 years, bought the The Bridge Bistro And Bar business, which closed in July. The restaurant has since had a complete overhaul of the interior which has been personally overseen by Rudd. "We have completely re-kitted the inside," Rudd said. "I want it to be more than a restaurant a whole dining experience. I have focused on the visuals, the sound, the smell and of course the taste. Most of all, 'the feel'. It will be a place that will blow your mind." Rudd selected Tauranga as the location for the restaurant because he has a connection to the area and wants the eatery to contribute to the economic sustainability. "I do want to give back to the community, and have plans which I think will really give a boost to the local economy. The restaurant is just the first step," he said. Rudd returned to AC/DC in 1994 and is still performing with the band, which completed its "Black Ice" world tour in June last year. Read more from Bay Of Plenty Times.
