NEW ZEALAND will be the first to see AC/DC -- the greatest rock and roll band on the planet who have sold over 200 million records worldwide -- perform on the Australasian leg of their massive Black Ice World Tour.
Tickets to their Wellington concert on January 28, 2010 at the Westpac Trust Stadium and their Auckland concert on February 4, 2010 at Western Springs go on-sale next week, Tuesday, July 28 ... and fans are urged to be quick.
When tickets went on sale in Australia recently, they smashed all previous records. It became the fast selling tour in Australian history. In Melbourne, AC/DC hit fever pitch where fans queued overnight then snapped up 110,000 tickets in 45 minutes.
Nationwide, more than half a million tickets were sold in 3 hours.
It will be the band’s first time in New Zealand for 13 years and will - without any question - produce the most spectacular event ever staged in this country.
AC/DC will blast their way through New Zealand with one of the largest stage productions ever seen. The production will be moved around the country by 48 semi-trailers.
Tickets for this Rock and Roll EXTRAVAGANZA go on sale on:
Tuesday 28th July, 2009
There is just one ticket price: $159.90
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.” Chicago Tribune
“It's been way too long since someone tore the roof off the place like this.” Orange County Register (LA)
The New Zealand concerts come 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 18 countries, including the US, New Zealand, 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 New Zealand in January and February 2010!
