Legendary Australian band AC/DC are stopping off at the Olympic Stadium this month on the European leg of their 'Rock Or Bust World Tour 2015'. Formed in November 1973 by Glasgow-born brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, the hard rock band are one of the greatest selling music acts of all time, having sold 200 million records worldwide. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003 and are considered pioneers of heavy metal.
The group has involved 18 members over 40 years, and they’ve seen their fair share of ups and downs, but the last year has been particularly challenging, after Malcolm Young had to retire due to ill health, and drummer, Phil Rudd, was charged with attempting to procure a murder, threatening to kill and possession of drugs (murder charges have been dropped but Rudd has been replaced by Chris Slade for the tour).
However, the show must go on, and after performing ‘Highway to Hell’ at the Grammys in February, they’re once again doing the rounds with sell-out crowds from Stockholm to San Francisco.
Random fact: The band has inspired the renaming of streets in both Madrid (Calle de AC/DC) and Melbourne (ACDC Lane).
