Updated: 15 December 2015
Get ready for some pure rock and roll. AC/DC return to the UK and Ireland to play two huge shows during June 2016.
The group’s concerts will see Angus Young and co. headline stadiums in London and Manchester. For their London date, the band will perform at The Stadium at Queen Elizabeth’s Olympic Park on 4 June. AC/DC will head to Manchester on 9 June to perform at the Etihad Stadium.
AC/DC’s tour is in support of their 2014 release Rock or Bust, which is their first album since 2008’s Black Ice and the first without founding member Malcom Young.
The iconic band performed in the UK and Ireland last summer. AC/DC tickets sold out for their stadium shows in London, Glasgow and Dublin. Don’t miss out on your chance to see a band that made rock and roll history.
AC/DC early beginnings
The legend of AC/DC started in 1973 when brothers Angus and Malcolm Young formed the band. Throughout the years line-up changes have occurred with the brothers being the driving force in the band.
AC/DC recorded their debut album in ten days during the autumn of 1974. This was followed by TNT. The band soon became hugely successful in Australia, to the point where they landed an international deal with Atlantic Records.
Their record deal saw the worldwide release of High Voltage (an updated version from their Australian debut which included tracks from TNT). The band was on the rise to legend status.
In their 40 year career, one thing remained the same; AC/DC have always been rock pioneers. Some of their most notable tracks include Highway To Hell and You Shook Me All Night Long, tracks which the group chose to play during their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame in 2003.
The band’s music has been described as hard rock, blues rock and heavy metal while AC/DC like to think of it as simply rock and roll.
AC/DC Rock or Bust tour and album
Already one of the biggest selling bands of all time, the group released their sixteenth album in November.
Rock or Bust was the first without founding member Malcom Young on rhythm guitar due to dementia. Young has been replaced by family member Stevie Young. He previously worked with the group during 1988.
Rock or Bust is the follow-up up to 2008’s Black Ice. The album is the shortest from AC/DC with its runtime being 35 minutes. Rock or Bust charted in Australia at No.1. It didn’t quite match the success of Black Ice in the UK and debuted at No.3.
