Rare AC/DC Tour Program from 1976 Sells for $1500

Rare AC/DC Tour Program from 1976 Sells for $1500 -

An extremely rare AC/DC tour program has sold for $1500 during a recent ebay auction, reports UltimateClassicRock

The tour book was issued in 1976 whist the band were on their 'A Giant Dose of Rock & Roll' tour and the numbers were limited then.  It was created solely for the band's 'down under' gigs which consisted of only 20 shows.

The infamous tour was shrouded in controversy after the band's original bassist, Mark Evans was quoted making crude remarks about Rod Stewart's then wife, Brit Eklund. Along with Angus Young's strip/moon routine and the all out rowdiness of the band and their crew, Australian authorities deemed AC/DC to be a 'threat to the social morals of Australia's youth' and pulled the tour.

The seller of the programme is an avid AC/DC fan & memorabilia collector who claims he has never seen one on eBay.
