AC/DC will rock the Adelaide Oval on Saturday, November 21 following the announcement of Australian dates for their “Rock Or Bust” world tour.
The legendary rockers will play outdoor concerts in the five major capital cities through November and December off the back of the release of their worldwide No. 1 album, “Rock Or Bust”.
And fans won’t have to wait long for the chance to grab tickets for the Adelaide Oval concert, with all Australian tour tickets going on sale on Monday, April 20.
“It’s fantastic to be welcoming AC/DC back to Adelaide Oval,” Adelaide Oval SMA CEO Andrew Daniels said.
“We have been working with the promoter since October last year to secure this event, and we’re delighted to now be able to bring them to Adelaide for what promises to be a huge show.”
Tickets for the concert — which are priced at $99 or $159 — will be available through Ticketek.
AC/DC last toured the world from 2008 to 2010 with the “Black Ice” world tour, which had the band playing to over 5 million fans in 108 cities in over 28 countries. The band played at Adelaide Oval in March 2010 in front of a crowd of 43,000.
“Rock Or Bust” was released on December 2, 2014 and is AC/DC‘s first album without guitarist Malcolm Young, who is suffering from dementia. He has been replaced by nephew Stevie Young.
AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was arrested last November at his home in Tauranga on charges of threatening to kill and possession of methamphetamine and cannabis.
A “not guilty” plea to the charges was entered by his lawyer in December. Rudd faces several years in prison if convicted of the charges.
Although Rudd played on “Rock Or Bust”, he did not appear in photos or videos for the disc.
One-time AC/DC drummer Chris Slade officially joined the band’s lineup for its performance on the February 8 Grammy Awards telecast. Slade will also be behind the kit for the group’s upcoming world tour.
