SAN FRANCISCO—On Friday, September 25, AC/DC will be performing in San Francisco for the first time in 36 years at AT&T Park. AC/DC has had several notable performances this year at high-profile events such as Coachella and the Grammys.
The Australian band has been on the road since April for their “Rock or Bust” World Tour, promoting their 16th studio album. Their new album, “Rock or Bust,” marks the band’s first studio recording since 2008. AC/DC has included 20 different countries on their world tour with 14 North American destinations, and their first U.S. stop being in Indio, California at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
The band’s last performance in the United States will be in Los Angeles, at the Dodger’s Stadium on September 28. San Francisco is the second to last show in the 14-stop North American portion of their tour. Tickets for the show are starting at $59.50 on Ticketmaster.
According to the official San Francisco Giants page, AT&T Park can hold up to 41,503 concert-goers. The SFMTA expects the park to be at or near full capacity.
Additional MUNI trains will be departing AT&T Park to accommodate large crowds.
San Francisco traffic is anticipated to be congested by the Critical Mass ride, where hundreds of cyclists ride through the city on the last Friday of each month.
Critical Mass is an open event that has been taking place for over 20 years, since 1992. It has been seen as a way for bicycling protesters to reclaim the streets, and currently has 300 cities participating worldwide.
The Critical Mass will be taking place across the street from the Justin Herman Plaza, at 5:30 p.m., and the AC/DC concert will be taking place at 7:45 p.m. at 24 Willie Mays Plaza.
As a traffic precaution, motorists have been advised to avoid increased congestion in downtown San Francisco by avoiding the Bay Bridge two hours before and after the concert.
