Rock Band to play at Olympic Stadium

acdcRock band AC/DC will be the first band to perform at the former Olympic Stadium next Summer before West Ham move in to their new home in August.

The Australian band, whose hits include Thunderstruck and Highway to Hell, will perform in a concert there as part of the European leg of their “Rock or Bust” tour.

The June concert will be the first major musical event to be held at the former Olympic Stadium at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

AC/DC’s recent concert at the Western Springs Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand,ย sparked a major row over noise pollution. The set by the Australian musicians could be heard four miles (6.5km) away across Waitemata Harbour in Birkenhead. The heavy metal band were measured at 103 decibels and their loud music set off numerous car alarms outside the venue, which holds 30,000 spectators. The combined efforts of the band were louder than recent performers Foo Fighters (98 decibels), Eminem (101 decibels) and the Big Day Out Festival (101 decibels ).

Residents of Stratford beware!
