The purchase will only be possible on Ticketone's internet channel and via call centres, not in points of sale.
The Black Ice Tour 2010 of Ac/dc makes its European debut on 14 May in Sofia, Bulgaria, and the one in Udine will be the third concert of the series in the Old Continent. The tour is currently scheduled to conclude, after 19 dates, on 28 June in Bilbao, Spain.
On 19 April, meanwhile, the soundtrack of the film "Iron Man 2″signed by Ac/dc, which entered straight to No. 1 in this week's UK charts. The news was particularly surprising because Angus and Malcolm Young's band 'stole' the chart-topping debut from the new album by Paul Wellerwho is the absolute icon of national music in the UK.
Angus Young, Malcolm Young, Brian Johnson, Cliff Williams and Phil Rudd had already taken their Black Ice Tour to New Zealand, Australia and Japan this year before returning to Europe, where they had recorded an impressive number of sold-out concerts during 2009, including two concerts at the Forum di Assago in March 2009. The tour heralded Ac/dc's glorious return to the stage after an eight-year absence. The album that preceded it, Black Ice, released at the end of 2008, has so far sold over four million copies worldwide, followed a few months later by Backtracks (Sony Music), a box set of live and studio rarities from the world's biggest hard rock band.
