AC/DC Immortalized In Trading Cards
Don't be surprised if, sometime soon, you overhear one kid saying to another, I'll trade you my Albert Pujols for your Bon Scott. That's because a set of AC/DC trading cards is being released in November by Press Pass, reports Bryan Wawzenek at Gibson.com. Titled AC/DC High Voltage, the 100-card base set will take fans on a trip from the rock legends' humble beginnings in Australia to their recent, record-busting Black Ice world tour which became the second-highest grossing tour in history. Subsets will be based on some of AC/DC's best-known songs, including Thunderstruck, Back In Black and It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock n' Roll). The set also will include foil inserts named We Salute You and On The Highway To. The AC/DC trading cards will be available in packs of five. There's no word yet if each pack will include a stale stick of bubble gum. In other news, it has been revealed that AC/DC sold more tickets than any other musical act on the planet during 2010. A total of 33,717,237 tickets have been sold this year, with 11,897,085 almost one in three bought for rock events. LiveNation boss Irving Azoff recently stated that 2010 had been a bad period for ticket sales, but he believes next year will be stronger with acts like Van Halen returning to the road.
