AC/DC 2016 Concert Bootleggers Beware The Feds Will Be Watching You!

The kick ass rock band AC/DC is fed up with bootleggers and the theft/profit from their hard work and have asked the United States government to step in.

Sources have confirmed that the band has pre-filed documents to stop the sale of non-authentic merchandise sold in and around the bands concerts and asked for US Marshals help in up holding the law. The concerts will have United States Marshals at the venues for both security and to help in the fight against counterfeit merchandise. Our Spy’s have also informed us that there will soon be Ebay stings on companies claiming merch to be authentic. An insider that is working with the band said: “It’s a widespread problem on a scale that you would not believe and we feel that this would be a good test to see how much of an impact our agents can have.”

The band that made the second most money for a tour last year just behind Taylor Swift at just over $180M is not being “greedy” according to lead guitarist Angus Young: “We are not trying to be ass holes or greedy, we are just tired of seeing these guys at our concerts profiting off of our hard work selling counterfeit crap merch to our fans.”
