Tonight, On Tuesday 5 May, AC/DC will perform at the Gelredome stadium in Arnhem (The Netherlands) for the first European date of the 'ROCK OR BUST WORLD TOUR'.with which the band will present their new album 'Rock Or Bust' live for the first time. The only Italian date of the tour will be the 9 JULY at the 'Enzo and Dino Ferrari' International Autodrome of Imola for the biggest open-air event of summer 2015 The concert, produced and organised by Barley Arts, is now officially sold out, with 90,000 tickets sold in just five days. Virgin Radio is the official radio media partner of the event.

The AC/DC concert in Imola, an unmissable event, where the world rock legend band will set a historic location for live music in Italy ablaze with its energy and unmistakable riffs, represents for Barley Arts a great return to international rock gatherings in Emilia Romagna, a region where it has always brought great rock music, ever since the 1980s, with the historic festival Monsters of Rockup to the most recent Flippaut Rock Festival.

The event will take place in the Rivazza Paddockone of the greenest and most welcoming areas of the autodrome and, like all Barley events, will be characterised by the utmost attention to the thousands of fans who will flock there from all over Italy and Europe.

This is how it is expressed Claudio Trotta of Barley Arts: 'We will do everything in our power to make 9 July 2015 an all-round memorable day and to make it comfortable for fans in the Rivazza Paddock and the Ecological Mound, where they will be able to sit. In the time it takes to organise and establish the facilities, you will receive the necessary communications as always. Thank you very much to everyone and Rock And Roll!".

The 'ROCK OR BUST WORLD TOUR' is the first tour without Malcolm Young, who left the band months ago for health reasons. In his place is Stevie Young, grandson of founding members Angus and Malcolm Young, who played rhythm guitar in 'Rock or Bust' and accompanies the band on stage. Also on drums for the world tour is Chris Slade, who previously worked in the band between 1989 and 1994 and recently performed with AC/DC on stage at the 2015 Grammy Awards.

'Rock Or Bust', released last December, contains 11 previously unreleased tracks and comes six years after 'Black Ice', a 2008 album that was a huge worldwide success. In the Italian charts, the album entered at number three of the FIMI/GFK Top 100 Albums and, in no time at all, reached platinum status.
The album, recorded in the spring of 2014 at Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, produced by Brendan O'Brien and mixed by Mike Fraser, received very positive reviews from the world's press, who called it 'one of the high points reached by AC/DC in their very long and glorious career'.
