No AC/DC For Scotland's T IN THE PARK Festival

Contrary to a report in the UK's Sun, AC/DC will definitely not be appearing at Scotland's biggest music festival, T in the Park, in 2009. The paper claimed that the veteran rockers deliberately left Scotland off their forthcoming UK tour (in April), because they were planning to headline T in the Park later on in the year. Furthermore, the paper claimed that the appearance would be an "emotional homecoming show" because guitarists Angus and Malcolm Young were originally from Glasgow before they emigrated to Australia.

However, according to Virtual Festivals, T in the Park boss Geoff Ellis has released a shot down the report, saying, "I can confirm that AC/DC will not be playing at T in the Park 2009. We do not want AC/DC fans to buy a ticket for T in the Park under false pretences as this would not only disappoint them, but also the many people desperate to get their hands on a T in the Park ticket regardless of the headliner."
