There are some bands that carry a certain weight with their name, having a reputation that precedes them. Iconic 70s rock band AC/DC is one such band, who are known to music lovers the world over.

With hits such as ‘Highway to Hell’, ‘Thunderstruck’, and ‘Back in Black’, it’s impossible not to have heard of this legendary Aussie band founded by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young.

With a following that crosses generations and international borders, the band announced their ‘Power Up’ tour earlier today, and eager fans can’t wait to get their hands on tickets.

Luckily for fans in Ireland, AC/DC announced a Croke Park gig to close out their upcoming European tour.

Playing 21 dates across Europe – visiting ten countries across the continent

It’s been seven years since the iconic rock band performed their last concert together as part of their Rock or Bust world tour, an impressive 80-show run spread across 21 countries.

Needless to say, fans are delighted to hear the band are reuniting in 2024 for a European return. This time, however, they’ve scaled things back a bit with 21 dates spread across ten different countries.

With dates announced for Germany, Spain, Italy, England, the Netherlands, Austria, Slovakia, Belgium, France, and Ireland, fans across the continent are eager to get their hands on the much-anticipated tickets.
