North American fans wanting to get their hands on tickets for the AC/DC 'Rock or Bust tour' may soon be in luck following reports that the Aussie rockers are expected to hit the continent in the late summer.
According to French-language Canadian newspaper La Presse, Angus Young and co. are set to appear at the Plains of Abraham in Quebec City on September 2, although neither the band nor the venue have confirmed the show as of yet.
The seven-time Grammy nominees first revealed they would be heading out onto the road earlier this month when they announced 27 European dates in support of their 15th studio effort, Rock or Bust.
Kicking off at Holland’s Gelredome on May 5, the tour will then visit the likes of Austria’s Red Bull Race Track on May 14, Germany’s Jahnwiesen on June 19 and Norway’s Valle Hovin on July 17 before wrapping up at Poland’s National Stadium on July 25.
AC/DC tickets are currently available on TicketIQ for two of these shows with the June 28 concert at Glasgow’s Hampden Park up for grabs at a get-in price of $374 and the July 4 gig at London’s Wembley Stadium on offer at a get-in price of $366.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees’ first live outing since the departure of founding member Malcolm Young and the impending trial of drummer Phil Rudd for various offenses will no doubt focus on their current LP, which recently reached No.3 on the Billboard 200.
But those with AC/DC tickets for the band’s previous Black Ice Tour were also treated to all the classics including “Back In Black,” “Highway To Hell” and “You Shook Me All Night Long.”
With official news of further shows expected to drop any time soon, be sure to keep checking back on TicketIQ for the latest information on one of 2015’s most hotly-anticipated rock tours.

After the initial disappointment of the cancelation of a 2014 world tour following the illness of guitarist Malcolm Young; drummer Phil Rudd gave AC/DC fans hope during a recent update on Blabbermouth.
Rudd confirmed the band has no plans to cease touring and want to hit the round before the end of the year. Brian Johnson, the grissly frontman, also stated the group was “very likely” to kick off a smaller version of their cancelled world tour before the end of 2014 – their 40th anniversary. The band will use Stevie Young, the nephew of Malcolm & Angus, for rhythm guitar duty on the tour and forthcoming album.

AC/DC New Album on the way, tour to follow?
AC/DC have long been one of rock's most influential and successful bands. With a straight forward guitar sound and iconic image, the band will be celebrating their 40th anniversary in 2014.
In celebration, the band will be heading into the studio in Vancouver, British Columbia this May to record their 16th album, yet to be titled. According to a radio interview with frontman Brian Johnson, the band wants to follow with a 40 city tour highlighting all the hits from their 40 years.
