Since those are initial dates, I hope it's safe to assume that isn't it for N.A.

If they don't announce a Buffalo show, I may have to think about going to the Toronto one. Prices will be ridiculous, so we'll see. So, they're really playing Dallas one night then Toronto the next? I know if they fly out after the show it's not impossible, but that is some strange tour routing.

Think I paid around $80 to see them back in 09. Was definitely an outstanding show. It's the most I ever paid for a concert ticket, but it was also totally worth it. It was also really fricken loud.

I paid $90 on the last tour, but like you said, completely worth it. Maiden and Rush are the only other bands I've paid more to see.

I'm starting to have doubts that this is real. The link posted said this news was from January 8th. Why are we just hearing about something this big now? More importantly, why is there nothing on AC/DC's official page? Always check the official page first.

Fake, but:

AC/DC is one of those bands that I'd like to see at least once before they're gone forever, but won't be too sad if I don't get to.

And they'll probably jack ticket prices WAY up.

Other bands like this for me: Kiss, Motley Crue, Poison, Cheap Trick

Didn't even have to scroll down to know it was fake.

Any band in their right mind isn't going to play in Texas one day & Canada the day after. California to DC over 2 days is even a stretch.

It's Official: Hitting Studio in May (http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/brian-johnson-says-acdc-will-enter-studio-in-may/)

Johnson confirms it on FL radio. They do plan on doin 40 dates. Just not the fake ones that were posted on 1st page.

I'd kill to see them. But no way this is even within like 5-6 hours of me.

As a huge AC/DC fan I couldn't agree more. Ballbreaker was a very good album as well.

My guess is a NA fall tour and Chicago is very high because it is Chicago...I'm just hoping they consider Denver because I know sometimes tours will hit cites around Colorado but not in

it should hit denver since its a major city. maybe the pepsi center could get it. I want to get tickets for my dad. Its his all time favorite band and it would make his life.

I'm glad they're doing Europe in the summer. Unless they come right over in August, this greatly decreases their chances of doing a stadium tour. I love AC/DC, but the show at Gillette in '09 was a fucking horror show for parking. The show ended at 1115. Didn't get out of the parking lot until 130. Didn't get home until 3.

While I wasn't really interested in a stadium gig anyway, AC/DC can fuck off with their prices as well.

These are for London, in American (rough conversion, including booking fee, not including shipping):

Standing - $126
5th tier (yes, really) seats - $113
1st or 2nd tier seats - $165
(no 3rd or 4th tier seats available, those are the corporate boxes)

EDIT: and it took longer than expected, but it sold out.

Wow, really? Was yours stadiums or arenas? It was half that in London on the initial tour when they played arenas, but I don't know what the prices were like for the stadium tour the following year.

I paid $92 for 2nd row loge at the Garden show in '08 & $107.20 for front row at the 40 yard line at the Gillette show in '09.

They're still reasonable compared to U2, Eagles & Aerosmith.

Whereas I paid about £45 ($70) for amazing seats right on top of the stage, 1st tier at the O2 Arena in '08.

From what I remember, pretty much all the tickets were the same price (except for the ones they withheld for "platinum seating" or whatever) and the catch was that you had to join the fanclub to get lower level tickets.

They had Motorhead last year. There are old heavy metal/hard rock bands that have so many ubiquitous "anthems" that hipsters can throw them on their Apple TV's while drinking microbrews at their housewarming party and get a few chuckled "huhuhu I remember this song when my Dad played it the garage working on cars xD lmao that's so patriarchy" comments, so Coachella snags them up every so often.

Last time i saw them in L.A. it was the worst crowd I've been a part of. I was embarrassed to be there. I like you, dcmetal though.
