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).
