Dress up as Angus and you could win a once in a lifetime trip to see the band

AC/DC are kicking off their comeback at Reading Festival (August 22-24) by offering fans a unique chance to see a one-off dress rehearsal from the band in the US.

However to qualify fans must dress up as the band’s guitarist Angus Young.

The best “Angus” will win a two-person trip to the US to see the band perform the exclusive gig.

AC/DC will release a new album rumoured to be called ‘Black Ice’ – their first since 2000’s ‘Stiff Upper Lip’ – later this year.
