AC/DC

AC/DC rocking London’s Olympic Stadium

AC/DC will return to London almost a year after they sold out Wembley Stadium.

The Australian rock veterans play the former Olympic Stadium at Queen Elizabeth Park on 4 June 2016 as part of the next leg of their Rock or Bust world tour.

Tickets for the first major concert at the stadium since it was transformed after hosting the 2012 London Games go on sale on 18 December 2015 at www.gigsandtours.com and www.ticketmaster.co.uk.

The 2016 European tour, which kicks off on 7 May at Passeio Martimo De Alges in Lisbon and also includes a 9 June stop at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium, follows a busy year for the group. Since January, they’ve kicked off the 57th annual Grammy Awards, headlined at Coachella, and completed 17 shows in Europe, 14 shows in North America and 11 shows in Australia/New Zealand.

AC/DC – currently Angus Young, Brian Johnson, Cliff Williams, Stevie Young, and Chris Slade – released ‘Rock Or Bust’, their first studio album in six years, in December 2014.

Recorded with producer Brendan O’Brien, it is the first album in the band’s history to be recorded without the contributions of founding member Malcolm Young who, due to illness, was unable to remain an active member of the ensemble.

Nonetheless, ‘Rock or Bust’ hit #1 in 12 countries, while breaching the Top 5 in another 12 territories including the United Kingdom. The album has sold 2.8 million copies worldwide, contributing to the band’s global sales totaling 200 million records and counting since 1973. Those figures are in no small part down to one of the group’s best-loved works, 1980’s ‘Back In Black’, which has sold over 45 million copies globally, making it the top-selling album by a band – and second only to Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ as the world’s best-selling album ever.
