AC/DC's highly successful Black Ice World Tour returns to Canada on Aug.6, 2009 in Moncton, N.B. AC/DC kicked off their Black Ice World Tour in late October 2008, crisscrossing North America and Europe while garnering raves from critics along the way. The Black Ice World Tour was given the 'Major Tour of the Year' award at the 20thAnnual Pollstar Concert Industry Awards.

Released globally on Oct. 20, 2008, Black Ice has been certified five times Platinum in Canada and it was Canada's biggest selling album of 2008. Black Ice is AC/DC's first new album in more than eight years and it is evident the band is still an incredible force in rock.

On Oct. 26, 2008 AC/DC played their first show in almost five years. Dedicated fans from all over the world traveled to the small industrial town of Wilkes-Barre, Penn. to be there. A few select fans were chosen to be featured in a documentary. Their stories reflect the commitment and passion of what it means to be a true AC/DC fan. The documentary can be seen at ACDCFannation.com

BlackIce made history by debuting at No.1 on album charts in 29 countries and also has the distinction of being Columbia Records' biggest debut album (since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales data in 1991). Black Ice has been certified Multi Platinum in18 countries, including Argentina, Australia, Canada, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the United States.

Additionally Black Ice has achieved Platinum status in five countries (including the United Kingdom and Spain) and Gold status in four other countries (including Brazil, the Netherlands and Poland). With more than 6.5 million copies of Black Ice having been shipped worldwide, combined with more than 5.5 million in catalogue sales sold last year, AC/DC has surpassed The Beatles as the No. 1 selling catalogue artist in the United States for 2008.
