AC/DC Coming Back To Canada

Australian rock legends AC/DC are returning to Canada this summer for a six-pack of stadium shows on their massive Black Ice tour, with more dates pending, it was announced yesterday. The tour kicks off Aug. 6 in at Moncton's Magnetic Hill Music Festival and makes its way to Vancouver on Aug. 23, with stops in Montreal, Winnipeg, Regina and Edmonton along the way (see full schedule below). It will be the group's first appearance in Regina. Tickets for all shows go on sale Sat., April 18 at Ticketmaster.com, with the exception of the Moncton gig, which goes on sale April 17. Prices are generally hovering around the $100 range, with cheaper nosebleed seats in some venues and more expensive VIP options in others. Check Ticketmaster in your area for more information. The band - singer Brian Johnson, guitarists Angus and Malcolm Young, bassist Cliff Williams and drummer Phil Rudd - are still touring behind their mega-hit comeback album Black Ice, which has sold 6.5 million copies globally since being released last fall. It was also the best-selling album in Canada last year, despite - or perhaps because of - the band's refusal to license their music for digital sales. In any case, if you want tickets, be fast - these shows are almost guaranteed to sell out in minutes. Here are the AC/DC tour dates, for those about to rock: Aug. 6: Moncton / Magnetic Hill Music Festival Aug. 8: Montreal / Olympic Stadium Aug. 22: Winnipeg / Canad Inns Stadium Aug. 24: Regina / Mosaic Stadium at Taylor Field Aug. 26: Edmonton / Commonwealth Stadium Aug. 29: Vancouver, BC / BC Place Thanks for the report to Jam!

    I cant believe there coming to moncton. I'm not a fan of AC/DC but I'm sure theres plenty on the east coast so thats cool.

    Oh god. Really? The Olympic Stadium? As if most gigantic shows in Montreal didn't already suck sonically. I'll probably end up going, its just the last big show we had at the Big O was Genesis, and the sound was awful. I'm glad they're coming back though. Monctonians gotta be loving it.
