AC/DC Make History Again (Top Story)

AC/DC Make History Again was a top story in July. Here it is again as we recap 2010: It seems only fitting that this week marks the 30th anniversary of the release of AC/DC's landmark "Back in Black," which is the second biggest selling album in music history, that we now learn that the band's Black Ice tour was the second biggest selling tour in music history.

Bryan Wawzenek of Gibson.com reports: Having just wrapped up last month in Spain, AC/DC's long-running Black Ice tour has turned out to be the second-highest grossing concert tour in music history, according to Billboard.com. With a haul of about $441.6 million, the 2008-10 Black Ice tour takes a backseat only to The Rolling Stones' 2005-07 A Bigger Bang tour, which grossed $558.3 million.

Still, Angus Young and Co. have nothing to hang their heads about. Nearly 4.9 million people attended the 168 shows on the tour. Following an eight-year touring absence, AC/DC hit the road again in 2008 to support a new studio album, Black Ice. That album also performed amazingly well, topping the charts in 27 countries. - more on this story
