The Back in Black Tour was the supporting tour for the album Back In Black by the Australian hard rock band AC/DC through 1980 to 1981.[1] The band transported their own one-ton "Hells Bell" on the road, which was lowered to the stage each night as the bell tolls of "Hells Bells" were heard. Brian Johnson would finish it off with several hard hits, hammer in hand as the band commenced the show.[1]
