November 28 Declared 'AC/DC Day” in Vancouver
With their latest album, Black Ice, now available, AC/DC are in the midst of a large international tour to promote the album. Leading up to their upcoming Vancouver date, the city’s mayor Sam Sullivan appeared on 99.3 The Fox to announce that November 28 will be declared "AC/DC Day” in Vancouver, in honour of the band’s gig at General Motors Place that night.

While the announcement came across as tongue-in-cheek, it still came from a place of sincerity. The band recorded their chart-topping new album at Vancouver’s legendary Mushroom Studios, which runs deep in the city’s roots. Declaring "AC/DC Day” is all part of bigger plan to emphasize Vancouver’s place in the arts. "We're going to be hosting the Junos this year [on March 29] and put a lot of effort into getting them here and that's a great showcase for this industry,” Sullivan told The Province. "People come from all over the world to make their recordings, to make movies. The city is a hotbed of real great talent and we should celebrate that.”
