Thanks for the news 'The Pagemeister'

I see that they are going to be at a city fairly close to us toward the end of their tour. I hope that, unlike some other bands whose concerts we had tickets for, the AC/DC members' health and dispositions hold up for the duration of the planned dates. In any case, the date that they are to play in our region, will be close to the 30th anniversary of when we first saw AC/DC.

I am SOO...

There: Nov. 12-13: New York (Madison Square Garden)

or

There: Nov. 17: Philadelphia (Wachovia Center)

or

There: Nov. 19: East Rutherford, N.J. (IZOD Center)

BUK, if possible, I personally always love to catch the first night of a tour. If you're up for it, you might be able to catch the first night in Wilkes-Barre.

AC/DC: 18 'Black Ice World Tour' Concerts Sell Out In Record Time

Fans responded enthusiastically to the first AC/DC world tour in eight years with 18 "Black Ice World Tour" concerts selling out in record time. Unprecedented fan response forced additional shows in Chicago, Los Angeles, and Oakland.

"Black Ice World Tour" ticket sales highlights include:

* Chicago's Allstate Arena concert sold out in minutes forcing the second show to go on sale, which also sold out over the weekend.

* Both Madison Square Garden concerts sold out in minutes.

* Vancouver's General Motors Place concert sold out in 4 minutes, a record for that venue.

* San Antonio fans purchased more tickets in one day for AC/DC than for any other artist in that market's history.

* Tickets for Toronto's Rogers Centre sold faster than any stadium concert in the venue's history.

"The tremendous fan response to AC/DC is evidenced by record breaking ticket sales this weekend," said Columbia Records co-Chairman Steve Barnett. "Along with the worldwide success of the 'No Bull' DVD re-release, it's obvious that fans are anxiously awaiting the October 20 release of the new album, 'Black Ice'."

"AC/DC's fans came out in force this weekend to get tickets to the band's upcoming 'Black Ice' tour," said David Marcus, Ticketmaster's senior vice president, Music. "A live AC/DC event promises to be a legendary rock show. We're glad Paperless Ticket helped fan club members and fans get tickets at face value for designated seats."

The "Black Ice World Tour" opens on October 28 at the Wachovia Arena in Wilkes-Barre, PA. The worldwide tour — the band's first since 2001 — promotes "Black Ice", AC/DC's latest studio album. "Black Ice" will be released on October 20 and sold in the U.S. exclusively at Wal-Mart, Sam's Club, and www.acdc.com. The album is currently available for pre-order at www.walmart.com and www.acdc.com.

Tickets to AC/DC's "Black Ice World Tour" are available through Ticketmaster.com, Ticketmaster charge-by-phone, Ticketmaster retail outlets, or at ACDC.com. Specific market on sale dates and times are listed at Ticketmaster.com's AC/DC page. Fans ordering tickets through Ticketmaster.com will have an exclusive opportunity to pre-order AC/DC's "Black Ice" album in connection with their ticket purchase.

Additional appearances throughout North and South America, Europe, and Asia, will be announced shortly.
