AC/DC for those about to rock … in Denmark

Aussie rockers playing in Roskilde (not the festival) in July

Rock fans can prepare themselves to be shook all night long next summer as legendary rock band AC/DC have revealed that they are performing in Denmark on 15 July 2015.

The Australian rockers will be busting out their mean riffs just a short drive down the highway from Hell-erup at Dyrskuepladsen in Roskilde, although it won't be in connection with Roskilde Festival, which is taking place there two weeks earlier.

The concert is part of the Sydney-based band's world tour of their new album ’Rock or Bust’, which is number one in the charts at the moment in Denmark, as well as Germany, Australia, Canada and Sweden – to mention a few.

Ticket sales will kick off on Wednesday December 17 at 10:00 via livenation.dk and billetnet.dk. Tickets cost 675 kroner plus fees.

’Rock or Bust' is AC/DC's first album without legendary rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young, who is suffering from dementia, and he has been replaced by Stevie Young, the nephew of Malcolm and lead guitarist Angus Young.

Rudd hanging in the balance
It is still unknown whether the band's drummer Phil Rudd will take part in the tour after he was charged with drug possession, making death threats and attempting to procure a murder in November.

The last time the rockers were 'saluted' in Denmark was in 2010 when they blasted some TNT in Horsens, while a packed Parken Stadium in Copenhagen was 'thunderstruck' the year before.

The group has sold over 200 million albums in a career that has spanned five decades since they first turned on their amps back in 1973.
