Aussie rockers AC/DC will stop off in Dublin next summer as part of their upcoming European ‘Rock Or Bust’ tour.
The tour arrives in Europe at the end of June, they’re playing Glasgow’s Hampden Park before the band hits our shores at the beginning of July.
The rock legends are returning to Ireland for the first time since 2009, when they played Punchestown as part of their ‘Black Ice Tour’.
The group recently released the album Rock Or Bust, their first since Black Ice released six years ago.
The band’s 15th studio album was recorded in Vancouver, Canada. Singer Brian Johnson said, “It was brilliant over there. I’m very excited and we’ve got some great songs.”
This will be the first AC/DC record without Malcolm Young. The band and his family both confirmed that the guitarist will not be returning to the group, due to health issues.
Controversy has surrounded the band in recent weeks after AC/DC’s drummer Phil Rudd, was arrested for trying to arrange a murder. The charge of attempting to procure the murder of two people has since been withdrawn. Although, the two other charges of threats to kill and drug possession still stand.
AC/DC will play the Aviva stadium on July 1st 2015. Tickets are €87.50 including booking fee, limited to 8 per transaction and go on sale from the usual outlets next Wednesday, December 17th at 9am.
