By August 23rd 1980, AC/DC's "Back In Black" album would begin a 131 week run on the U.S. Billboard charts, quickly receiving platinum award status. AC/DC were by now in the midst of their North American tour, which would give fans their first taste of Brian Johnson on stage with the band. The North American tour began in Edmonton, Canada on July 13th, with the first U.S. date taking place in Eerie, Pennsylvania a couple of weeks later. AC/DC would tour the USA straight through to October before beginning the UK leg that fall.
