Australian hard rock band AC/DC has announced that they will be touring the Land Down Under from November to December 2015. The “Rock Or Bust” Australian Tour will kick off on Nov. 4, 2015 at the ANZ Stadium in Sydney, Australia. The band will be touring other cities in Australia including Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Melbourne. Read on for the schedule of the AC/DC 2015 Hometown Tour.
The official AC/DC tour website posted the details about the band’s 2015 “Rock Or Bust” Australian Tour. Ticket prices are $99 and $159. It will be on sale at Ticketek and Ticketmaster starting on Monday, April 20, 2015.
The Sydney Morning Herald, or SMH reports that the “Rock Or Bust” promoter Garry Van Egmond said that AC/DC founder and lead guitarist Angus Young wanted to keep the prices low for the Australian leg. After all, this is the place where the band started out.
“Angus watches the tickets like a hawk. We could charge a lot more if we wanted, but he wants it to be affordable and he’s very sincere about it. He also doesn’t allow presales,” Van Egmond said in the SMH report.
Aside from Young, the current AC/DC band members are Brian Johnson (lead vocals), Phil Rudd (drummer), Cliff Williams (bass guitar and backing vocals) and Stevie Young (rhythm guitar and backing vocals). Chris Slade (drummer) sometimes joins the band for their live performances.
