AC/DC: 50,000 Tickets Sold For Montreal Show

July 17, 2009

A few weeks before the big event, Gillett Entertainment Group has released approximately 3,000 more tickets for the highly anticipated AC/DC concert at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on August 8.

With over 50,000 tickets already sold, this will be the biggest show presented at the Olympic Stadium in the past decade.

With the release of these floor and side stage tickets, Gillett Entertainment Group hopes to satisfy the demand of as many fans as possible.

AC/DC made Forbes magazine's list of Top-Earning Musicians list of the year, with MADONNA, CELINE DION and BEYONCÉ taking the top three spots.

Says Forbes: "The Aussie rock band fronted by aging schoolboy Angus Young tied for No. 5 on this year's list of top earners thanks to their seemingly relentless popularity. Their fall 2008 effort, 'Black Ice', was the band's first album in eight years. Sales of 'Ice' combined with international catalog sales made AC/DC the No. 1 catalog artist of 2008. As well, their domestic tour grossed $38 million in 2008."
