AC/DC Cancels Tonight's Show In Antwerp

According to concert promoter Live Nation, Anglo-Australian rockers AC/DC have been forced to cancel tonight's (Tuesday, March 3) show at Sportpaleis in Antwerp, Belgium after one of the bandmembers (reportedly vocalist Brian Johnson) was taken ill. The group played a sold-out concert at the same venue on Sunday (March 1) to positive reviews.

Tickets to both Belgian shows sold out within two hours after they went on sale.

Video footage of AC/DC's February 20, 2009 concert at Globen in Stockholm, Sweden can be viewed below (courtesy of "ACDCAbruzzo").

AC/DC's "Black Ice" was among the top-selling albums of 2008 globally, according to new figures from the London-based International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), which represents the recording industry worldwide.

Two AC/DC tracks, "Shoot To Thrill" and "War Machine", are being used as theme songs for WrestleMania XXV, which takes place on April 5 at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas.
