Monsters or rock AC/DC will be storming the Olympic Stadium in Barcelona on the 29th of May on the European leg of their ‘Rock or Bust World Tour 2015′.
AC/DC were formed in 1973 by Glaswegina brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, and having sold a staggering 200 million records worldwide are one of the greatest selling music acts of all time.

In true Rock and Roll fashion the band has seen its share of ups and downs, witnessed by the fact the group has featured over 18 different members in its 40 years. The group has involved 18 members over 40 years! Last year founder member Malcolm Young was forced to retire due to ill health.

However, the show must go on, and after performing ‘Highway to Hell’ at the Grammys in February, they’re once again doing the rounds with sell-out crowds from Stockholm to Sao Paulo.
