AC/DC to Tour in the Fall
The group AC/DC hardly needs an introduction. After 35 incredibly successful years in the industry, the hard rock band is still going strong. To prove this, the band has just announced its decision to do a world tour in support of their upcoming album release, “Black Ice”.
AC/DC are perhaps best known as being the forefathers of hard rock and heavy metal, even though band members Angus and Malcolm Young have always considered themselves to be a rock ‘n roll group. The band was formed in Sydney, Australia, in 1973 and the world has never been quite the same since. Now, more than thirty years later, they will yet again be taking the world by storm as they embark on the Black Ice World Tour. The tour will commence on October 28 at the Wachovia Center in Wilkes-Barre, just days after the release of their ‘Black Ice’ album on October 20. The album will be sold exclusively at Sam’s Club, Wal-Mart and AC/DC’s official website. The North American leg of the tour will feature 24 dates before the group takes their music abroad and visits South America, Europe and Asia. This is the first tour the group will be undertaking since their 2001 tour.
After kicking off at the Wachovia Arena in Wilkes-Barre, AC/DC will hit the Allstate Arena in Chicago (Oct 30), the Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis (Nov 3), the Palace of Auburn Hills in Michigan (Nov 5), the Rogers Center in Toronto (Nov 7), the TD Banknorth Garden in Boston (Nov 9), Madison Square Garden in New York (Nov 12-13), the Verizon Center in Washington DC (Nov 15), the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia (Nov 17), the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey (Nov 21), the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, Ohio (Nov21), the Xcel Energy Center in Minneapolis (Nov 23), the Pepsi Center in Denver (Nov 25), General Motors Place in Vancouver (Nov 28), the KeyArena in Seattle (Nov 29), the Tacoma Dome in Washington(Nov 30), the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California (Dec 2), The Forum in Los Angeles (Dec 6), the US Airways Center in Phoenix (Dec 10), the AT&T Center in San Antonio (Dec 12), the Toyota Center in Houston (Dec 14), the Philips Arena in Atlanta (Dec 16) and the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte (Dec 18).
