AC/DC have been scorching their way through Europe for the past five weeks, having slayed fans with two incredible shows at Coachella Music Festival in the US in April and at the 57th Grammy Awards in February.
“By the end of the show,
Young had visibly bloody knees: as usual,
he sacrificed his body for rock & roll.” Rolling Stone magazine
"Survivors from hell" -
" AC/DC still feeds on pure energy" - Le Soir
“ Simply astonishing, a classic rock & roll celebration” - La Razón
“ AC/DC electrifies Madrid” -El País
“ High voltage night!” - El Mundo
In Germany, the band set a world record in the number of sold tickets within the shortest timespan, with more than 300,000 tickets sold out in 77 minutes.
Austria was treated to the biggest concert ever staged in the country with over 115,000 rocking out with the biggest band on the planet.
And in Australia, demand for tickets has been so massive that it’s forced second shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane.
If there is one thing you have to do in your life its AC/DC live!
AC/DC last toured the world from 2008-2010 with the Black Ice World Tour, which had the band playing to over 5 million fans in 108 cities in over 28 countries. Box office records were smashed in Australia and New Zealand with 750,000 tickets sold and The Black Ice World Tour earned AC/DC a Pollstar Award for Major Tour of the Year in 2010.
AC/DC’s album ‘Rock or Bust’ was released on December 2 last year and immediately topped sales charts around the globe. The album’s first 2 singles “Play Ball” and “Rock or Bust” were added to major radio around the world. The band’s third video “Rock The Blues Away” shot in Los Angeles has just been released and has already notched up more than 9 million views.
‘ Rock or Bust’ is the band’s fifth No.1 album in New Zealand and the band’s seventeenth studio album overall, with the previous four being: BACK IN BLACK (March 1981), LIVE (22-Nov-1992), BALLBREAKER (8-Oct-1995), and their last was BLACK ICE (27-Oct-2008).
Don’t miss the concert event of the decade.

More than four decades into a career that shows no signs of slowing down or letting up, AC/DC, like electricity itself, provides the world with an essential source of power and energy. Since forming in 1973, AC/DC's high voltage rock 'n' roll has flowed out into the world via consistently sold-out concert tours and global sales totaling more than 220 million albums and counting.
Sony BMG Music Entertainment's #1 best-selling catalog act worldwide.
AC/DC has sold nearly 71 million albums in the US alone, making AC/DC one of the top five selling bands in American music history.
One of the group's best-loved
works, the enormously successful and influential "Back
In Black," has achieved RIAA "Double Diamond" status, for
sales in excess of 22 million copies in the United States, and is the U.S.'s
fifth largest-selling album ever.
But the roots of AC/DC lie back in Australia, and before that Glasgow, Scotland, where Angus and Malcolm Young, the musical core of the band (and still the most formidable guitar team in rock history), were born (in 1958 and 1953, respectively). In 1963, the Young family migrated to Sydney, Australia, where music would make its mark on the brothers. (As a member of the Easybeats, Angus and Malcolm's older sibling, George Young, was responsible for one of Australia's first international hits, "Friday On My Mind," in 1966. From 1974 through 2000, George and musical collaborator, Harry Vanda, produced a number of AC/DC albums including "High Voltage," "T.N.T.," "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap," "Let There Be Rock," "If You Want Blood You've Got It," "Powerage," "74 Jailbreak," "Who Made Who," "Blow Up Your Video," and "Stiff Upper Lip.")
