AC/DC - Clash With Animal Rights Activists


Aussie rockers AC/DC could have to cancel a sold-out concert because their big sound poses a danger to rare birds.

Animal rights campaigners are threatening legal action if the veteran band goes ahead with a gig planned for Wels airport in Austria in May. Hans Uhl of BirdLife said birds nesting in the area at the time would be threatened by anthems such as "Highway To Hell" and "You Shook Me All Night Long". "The second biggest colony of curlews in Upper Austria and various other ground-nesting birds must not become endangered," Mr Uhl said.

The event's 80,000 tickets were sold out within hours.

How bout if the stupid hippies do the leg-work and FIND the venue for AC/DC to play at, because the shit's already sold out...


Oh man I think you just solved the problem...what a great idea! Seriously, if the activists have such a problem with it then why don't they use their resources to come with a solution and relocate the venue!

Right??? C'mon now hippies be part of the solution not part of the problem!! haaha.

It is a well known fact that curlews are fans of classic rock, most animals have better music taste than humans, my cat has formed a Kamelot tribute band and my tropical fish actually did the choir parts on Epica's new album.


My cat once curled up in front of my amp when I was playing Painkiller on my guitar.

Would have been better if he had headbanged along and joined in with some Rob Halford meows.
