AC/DC's Wellington Ticket Price Shock

Tom Cardy of The Dominion Post reports that all tickets to AC/DC's concert at Westpac Stadium in Wellington, New Zealand on January 28, 2010 will cost $159.90 NZD (approximately $104 USD).

Wellington is the first date of the band's Australasian tour and tickets go on sale on July 28. The band will also perform at Auckland's Western Springs on February 4.

It is the first rock concert at the stadium not to vary ticket prices. Even THE ROLLING STONES in 2006 seen by a crowd of 40,000 had ticket prices from $55 NZD ($36 USD) to $350 NZD ($227 USD). When AC/DC last played New Zealand in 1996, tickets cost $59 NZD (the equivalent of $77 NZD today).
