AC/DC will be first band to play West Ham’s revamped Olympic Stadium

Extra tickets have been released for AC/DC’s Rock Or Bust World Tour, including their date at London’s former Olympic Stadium.

This makes the Aussie legends the first band to play at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Stadium since West Ham confirmed plans to rent the venue.

The European leg of AC/DC’s Rock Or Bust World Tour stops in London on 4 June, before headlining Manchester’s Etihad Stadium on 9 June.

AC/DC will continue the Rock Or Bust World Tour with Axl Rose, following the band’s official statement last week:

AC/DC band members would like to thank Brian Johnson for his contributions and dedication to the band throughout the years. We wish him all the best with his hearing issues and future ventures. As much as we want this tour to end as it started, we understand, respect and support Brian’s decision to stop touring and save his hearing.

We are dedicated to fulfilling the remainder of our touring commitments to everyone that has supported us over the years, and are fortunate that Axl Rose has kindly offered his support to help us fulfill this commitment. AC/DC will resume their Rock Or Bust World Tour with Axl Rose joining on vocals.

The European stadium tour dates begin on May 7 in Lisbon, Portugal and run through June 12 in Aarhus, Denmark as previously announced (see below for full itinerary). Following this European run of dates with AC/DC, Axl Rose will head out on his Guns N Roses, Not In This Lifetime Summer Stadium Tour. The 10 postponed U.S shows will be rescheduled and announced imminently, also with Axl Rose.
