The Week in AC/DC
After rocketing and rumbling across the rest of the globe for the last ten days, Iron Man 2 and the music of AC/DC finally touch down in North America today for the film's official North American release. If you're heading out to the theaters to catch Iron Man 2 during its opening weekend, Fandango has a special offer that gives you $ 6 off the AC/DC: Iron Man 2 CD/DVD plus a limited edition AC/DC poster when you purchase your tickets through Fandango.



Here at the AC/DC Fan Club, to mark the occasion, we're offering fans the chance to bring home an AC/DC: Iron Man 2 bundle, featuring the CD/DVD set or a Collector's Edition of the band's new Iron Man 2 album, both packaged with our online-only "Shoot To Thrill" t-shirt. We're pretty sure you already have the album, but if not, you can get a copy of the AC/DC: Iron Man 2 bundle over in the AC/DC store.



While we're on the subject of movies full of classic AC/DC tracks, today marks the anniversary of the date back in 1982 when AC/DC: Let There Be Rock finally hit U.S. theaters. The live concert film, which was filmed at Paris' Pavilion de Paris, was released in Europe in 1980, but because of distribution rights, didn't make it to U.S. theaters until a year-and-a-half later. Featuring songs from T.N.T., Powerage, and Highway to Hell, as well as tracks from the album of the same name, the film was AC/DC's first live concert film.

  One week from today, the band returns to the stage in Sofia, Bulgaria for the start of the next European leg of their Black Ice World Tour. The show's sure to be a rocker of an event, as it's AC/DC's first ever appearance in Bulgaria. Tickets are still available for the show and a majority of the upcoming European dates, so if you don't have your tickets yet, shake a leg and head over to the ticket page for more info.



  In addition to the band's return to Europe, next Friday also marks the 34th anniversary of the international release of High Voltage, AC/DC's first ever album to be released internationally. Made up of tracks from the Australian versions of High Voltage and T.N.T., it not only laid the groundwork for the next thirty plus years of Acca Dacca rock, but also featured one of the most badass bagpipe solos in rock history, on "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)."

To keep up with all AC/DC's historical moments, head over to the "On This Day" section of the site.

That's all she wrote for this week. Tune in next week for another edition of...The Week in AC/DC.
