When a name as big as AC/DC announces a tour of Australia and New Zealand, you better make sure you have a high voltage ticketing agency on hand to handle the enormous demands of the onsale.

Ticketmaster is the world’s largest ticketing agency and is the best-equipped ticketing provider to handle a major onsale such as AC/DC’s upcoming Rock or Bust tour.

The Aussie rockers initially announced single dates for Domain Stadium in Perth and Etihad Stadium in Melbourne – both venues with very large capacities for concerts. Following the enormous demand, AC/DC very quickly announced additional performances in Perth and Melbourne, which went on sale through Ticketmaster within hours of the original dates. AC/DC will also perform at Western Springs Stadium in New Zealand; tickets are not yet on sale for the New Zealand concert.

Music fans were in a frenzy when news that the Aussie rockers would tour was officially confirmed. The hype for the onsale was immense but Ticketmaster successfully accommodated the huge demand for tickets.

Ticketmaster is full of industry professionals who are passionate about the live entertainment industry. We understand the feeling of urgency to get the best seats in the house when a major act goes on sale and that passion and understanding is the reason we are committed to ensuring our major onsales run smoothly and efficiently.

The band is notorious for being fiercely protective and appreciative of its fans and we want to carry that into what we do. Ticketmaster is constantly investing in new products, tools and initiatives to ensure we can provide ticket purchasers with the very best experience when they visit our website or purchase through other methods.

Ticketmaster’s website is superior to any other ticketing site in Australia and New Zealand and can handle up to 200,000 concurrent browsers and up to 2400 transactions. The sites effortlessly fulfilled the demand for tickets for the AC/DC concerts in Melbourne and Perth.

The same technology that powers major onsales in huge global markets such as the USA and UK powers major onsales in Australia and New Zealand. Ticketmaster’s global strength is a major advantage to our local markets.

As well as the technology advantages, Ticketmaster in Australia and New Zealand can draw on the vast experience of major onsales overseas, which makes us the best choice for venues and event promoters.

Another major benefit of using Ticketmaster is that our website is able to continue to facilitate transactions for other events during a major onsale. Despite the enormous traffic on our website for AC/DC tickets, people could still seamlessly purchase tickets for other sports and entertainment events uninterrupted.

AC/DC is one of the biggest rock acts in the world. Their popularity is testament to the incredible music they have produced over so many years and is also a nod to the thrilling live shows they put on for their audience. The group recently performed at Coachella to rave reviews so there is no doubt they will light up Etihad Stadium, Domain Stadium and Western Springs Stadium later this year.

Tickets for AC/DC at Western Springs Stadium will go on sale shortly. Tickets for AC/DC in Australia are now on sale. Click here to purchase tickets now.
