AC/DC announce two massive UK live dates for 2016

Australian band will headline stadium shows in Manchester and London

AC/DC have announced details of two UK live dates to take place in June next year.

The band will play stadium gigs in Manchester and London in 2016. Starting at London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on June 4, they will then perform at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium on June 9.

The London gig will represent the first major concert at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park since it was used to host the 2012 Olympic Games.


Tickets for both dates go on sale this Friday (December 18) at 9.30am.

AC/DC will play:

London, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (June 4)
Manchester, Etihad Stadium (June 9)


AC/DC released 17th album ‘Rock Or Bust’ in November 2014, reaching Number Three in both the UK and US charts, as well as topping the charts in their homeland of Australia.

The gigs could potentially be the last by AC/DC. Earlier this year frontman Brian Johnson spoke about the possibility of retirement, conceding that ‘Rock Or Bust’ could be the band’s last.

“Y’know, retirement is like anything,” he said. “A good footballer, a good ice hockey player, they don’t want to retire, but unfortunately, sometimes there’s a time when you have to call it quits. So it’s an ongoing thing with us; we never say no, and we never say never.”
