The Razors Edge world tour was a concert tour played by the hard rock band AC/DC, which had 5 legs around the world lasting 12 months starting on 2 November 1990 in Worcester, Massachusetts finishing on 16 November 1991 in Auckland, New Zealand.
It was the only tour to feature drummer Chris Slade until the Rock or Bust World Tour in 2015-2016.
During the tour, the hugely successful Live at Donington show was performed. A video of the show has been released on VHS, then on DVD and Blu-Ray.
On 18 January 1991, three fans were crushed at a show in Salt Lake City when they fell to the floor at the beginning of the concert and were stepped on by other concertgoers, prompting the band to stop playing early on; however, the next show two days later in Phoenix was played as planned. The incident has since been a sore spot for AC/DC’s rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young, according to their VH1 Behind The Music special in which it is reported that he has since refused to talk about it.
The tour was one of the highest-grossing of 1991, and, along with the eponymous album, brought AC/DC back into the spotlight, after a streak of lackluster outings during the mid to late 1980s.
King’s X was the opening band for the second North American leg and first European legs of the tour. LA Guns was the opening band for the third North American leg of the tour.
* The show was originally scheduled the day before, but postponed because the stage roof dropped due to high wind gusts and bad weather.
** Recorded for and/or included on the associated live album AC/DC Live.[circular reference]
