AC/DC FOR SALE  FEBRUARY 11

Source : RISING POWER

AC/DC Vocalist Brian Johnson tells us that Angus is more than ready. "Me lad Angus is at the top of his game. He and Malcolm outdid themselves on this album. They had such fun with this one. The lucky winner is sure to learn a thing or two before it’s all over."

Says Angus: "You never know, the winner might be able to give me a tip or two. If they’re too good, of course, I might have to tape their fingers together."

The auction for the Angus guitar lesson will begin on February 21, with the winner announced on MTV’s Total Request Live on February 29, (the day Stiff Upper Lip arrives in stores) live from the band’s first in-store appearance ever, at New York City’s Virgin Megastore, in Times Square.

An unprecedented series of smaller AC/DC auctions will begin on February 11 at 1:00PM (ET), leading up to the Angus guitar lesson giveaway. Among the items to be auctioned off, beginning on February 11, are:

· A private online chat with Angus and Brian on MTV.com, prior to their official chat on MTV.com February 21.

· A chance to participate in the special album premiere party, hosted by the SFX Network at New York City’s Hard Rock Café on February 24. The band members will appear in person to answer questions from the audience as selections from Stiff Upper Lip are broadcast live to more than 170 participating stations. The high bidder wins the honor of asking the first question via phone.

· 20 autographed numbered/limited edition posters

· First 10 spots in line for the band’s Virgin Megastore appearance in Times Square, on February 29.
