AC/DC announce Wembley Stadium gig details

Band will also play in Glasgow and Dublin as part of European tour

AC/DC have confirmed details of gigs in London, Glasgow and Dublin next summer.

The band, who recently released new album ‘Rock Or Bust’, will headline Wembley Stadium in London on July 4. This gig will come after they play Glasgow’s Hampden Park on June 28 and Aviva Stadium in Dublin on July 1.

The gig in Glasgow represents AC/DC’s first time in the UK and Ireland since their ‘Black Ice’ world tour in 2009. Tickets for the gigs go on sale at 9:30am on December 17.

Earlier this year it was confirmed that guitarist Malcolm Young is suffering from dementia and will no longer record or play live with the band. ‘Rock Or Bust’ is the first in the group’s 41-year history not to feature the founding member.

Stevie Young – nephew of Angus and Malcolm Young – plays rhythm guitar on the album and will accompany the band on tour. The band’s drummer Phil Rudd was also recently arrested on charges of drug possession and threats to kill, although the latter charges were later dropped. His future playing live with the band remains unresolved.

NME: The story behind AC/DC’s biggest songs

AC/DC recently revealed that they would be open to the idea of headlining Glastonbury festival if asked. Speaking during a recent radio interview, the Australian band were initially sceptical about the prospect.

However, when informed of Metallica’s headline set last year, the band appeared more keen. “If they ask… OK,” Angus Young added. “If they ask I’ll say he sent us, Shaun sent us.”
