Rock or Bust tour hits London and Manchester in June
The AC/DC rock'n'roll juggernaut rolls into Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London on Saturday 4 June and Manchester's Etihad Stadium on Thursday 9 June. One of the greatest rock bands on the planet, fronted by gravel voiced vocalist Brian Johnson and guitar god Angus Young, AC/DC refuse to change the template with their heads down boogie blues as showcased on 2014's Rock or Bust album.
Sadly rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young is no longer performing with the band as he receives treatment for dementia but his nephew Stevie Young has stepped into the breach to keep everything in the family. Due to legal woes Phil Rudd has been replaced by former drummer Chris Slade but as anyone who saw their blistering shows in Glasgow or London in July 2015 can attest AC/DC are still one of the best live acts in the world as they lay down thundering rock anthems 'Highway to Hell', 'Back in Black', 'Thunderstruck', 'Whole Lotta Rosie', 'Let There Be Rock' and 'For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)'.
AC/DC tour dates 2016:
Sat 4 Jun – The Stadium, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London
Thu 9 Jun – Etihad Stadium, Manchester
Tickets on sale from 9.30am, Fri 18 Dec.
