Blow Up Your Video World Tour

The Blow Up Your Video World Tour was a concert tour played by the hard rock band AC/DC, which had 5 legs spreading over the course of 11 months starting on 29 January 1988, in Perth, Australia and finishing on 13 November 1988, in Inglewood, California.

This tour would be the last to feature drummer Simon Wright, before being replaced by Chris Slade in 1989. The tour also saw Malcolm Young step out from the North American legs due to an alcohol problem. During this period, he was replaced by his nephew (and subsequent permanent replacement in 2014), Stevie Young. This was AC/DC’s last tour and studio album during the 1980s, and it put them back in the limelight after a small streak of commercially disappointing albums.

Every show on the North American leg of tour began with a heatseeking missile pod rising up into the stage; Angus Young would then jump out of the missile pod and the band would open with the song “Heatseeker”, off the Blow Up Your Video album.
