AUSTRALIAN supergroup AC/DC will hold a second concert in Madrid as tickets to the first sold out within an hour and a half.
Live Nation promoters announced that as the 55,000 tickets available for the concert at Vicente Calderon Stadium in Madrid on May 31, 2015 had sold out so quickly, another concert will be held at the stadium on June 2.
The band will be touring with music from their new album Rock or Bust, the first they have released for six years, which went straight to the top of sales lists in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Switzerland, Finland, France, Norway, Sweden and Germany.
Rock or Bust is the first album the group has made without Malcolm Young, who has been replaced on the guitar by his nephew Stevie Young.
The success of the new record and concert ticket sales is more good news for the band after drummer Phil Rudd had charges of attempting to procure a murder dropped. He had been charged in New Zealand, but was cleared when the case was closed by prosecutors..
Tickets are available from Ticketmaster, El Corte Ingles, Entradas.com and LiveNation.es websites from €75 for the new Madrid date and for Barcelona’s Lluis Companys Olympic Stadium on May 29, 2015.
