Artisan News Service recently spoke to AC/DC bassist Cliff Williams about the band's recently completed "Black Ice" tour and the group's future plans. Watch the report here. According to The Music Network, AC/DC earned AUD 131.4 million (approximately USD $127 million) in 2009-10 (up from AUD $105 million [approximately USD $102 million] the previous year) to land at the second place on a list of Australia's richest entertainers, according to Business Review Weekly magazine. AC/DC couldn't hold on to the top spot, knocked off by Global Creatures. The animatronic special-effects company earned AUD $140 million (approximately USD $135 million) due to the rampaging success of "Walking With The Dinosaurs Arena Spectacular". AC/DC was honored in the "Top Boxscore" category at the Billboard Touring Awards, which were handed out at a special reception in New York on November 4, 2010. The awards are primarily based on global box office numbers reported to Billboard Boxscore from October 1, 2009, through September 30, 2010. The "Top Boxscore" award recognizes the highest-grossing single engagement for the time period. Two of the Boxscore finalists were from AC/DC: a three-night, sold-out stand at ANZ Stadium in Sydney and three more sellouts at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne; both were in February. The third finalist for Top Boxscore was the Download festival in the U.K. Pollstar magazine, which tracks the concert business, recently revealed that AC/DC's "Black Ice" trek was the No. 1 tour for the first nine months of 2010, with ticket sales of 1,820,962. Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.
