The Fly on the Wall Tour was a tour by Australian hard rock band AC/DC supporting their tenth studio album Fly on the Wall. The tour was split into two legs, an American leg starting on 2 September 1985 in Binghamton, New York and a European leg ending on 16 February 1986 in Copenhagen, Denmark. The tour was marked by protests from some groups who claimed AC/DC's music was connected to the Night Stalker murders.[1] Yngwie J. Malmsteen's Rising Force was the opening act on this tour.
