England...this summer, there's gonna be some rockin'! With three Monsters of Rock Festivals under their belt, AC/DC has a history of bringing the big guns to the UK's Donington Park, and this June, they're coming back for another go around. Get ready.
On June 11th, as part of their still-growing summer schedule in Europe, the Rock N Roll Train will be storming through the UK as AC/DC headlines the first night of the UK's three-day Download Festival. It'll be their first time back at Donington since their historic appearance before 70,000 fans at the 1991 Monsters of Rock Festival, which was famously captured in the Live at Donington DVD.
Tickets for the festival go on sale online on January 29th at 9 AM (local time).
