AC/DC’S BLACK ICE WORLD TOUR - ETIHAD STADIUM, THURSDAY 11 FEBRUARY, 2010
SATURDAY 13 FEBRUARY 2010
MONDAY 15 FEBRUARY 2010
AC/DC the greatest rock and roll band on the planet, who have sold over 200 million records worldwide, return home to Australia in February 2010 as part of the Black Ice World Tour.
It will be the band’s first Australian tour since January 2001 and will - without any question - produce one of the most spectacular rock shows ever staged in this country.
Joining AC/DC on the Black Ice Australian tour as special guests is the Grammy and ARIA Award winning band Wolfmother.
AC/DC will blast their way to Etihad Stadium with one of the largest stage productions ever seen.
The production will be moved around the country by 48 semi-trailers during February and March 2010.
Tickets for this Rock and Roll EXTRAVAGANZA are now on sale through the Ticketmaster network.
There will be two ticket prices: $99 and $149.90
Dates on the Black Ice world tour in the US and Europe have sold out virtually as quickly
as they were announced and the performances themselves have left the critics raving:
“AC/DC remain the gold standard for arena spectacle rock’n’roll.”
The Times (UK)
“Rock ‘n’ roll that outlasts time.”
“It's been way too long since someone tore the roof off the place like this.”
Orange County Register (LA)
The Australian tour comes on the back of the release of the hugely successful Black Ice album.
Released on October 20, 2008 on Albert Productions and distributed by Sony Music, Black Ice sold close to 2 million copies globally in the first week of release and debuted at the number one spot in a staggering 29 countries.
Black Ice is AC/DC’s first new album in over eight years and it’s evident the band is still an incredible force in rock.
Black Ice has been certified Multi Platinum in eighteen countries, including the US, Australia, Canada, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Germany, France, Italy, Argentina and the Czech Republic.
Additionally Black Ice has achieved Platinum status in five countries (including the UK and Spain) and Gold status in four countries (including The Netherlands, Poland and Brazil).
With over 6.5 million copies of Black Ice shipped worldwide, combined with over 5.5 million in catalogue sold last year, AC/DC has surpassed The Beatles as the #1 selling catalogue artist in the US for 2008.
Don’t miss the rock event of the decade which is heading to Etihad Stadium on Thursday 11, Saturday 13 and Monday 15 February 2010!
