Rufus Publications has set an October 16 shipping date for the AC/DC book titled “Rock Or Bust: The Official Photographic Tour Book”.
The first official AC/DC book with an introduction by Angus Young, the book covers the full extent of AC/DC’s groundbreaking 2015 world tour supporting the multi-million selling “Rock Or Bust” album, released in 2014.
Starting in Coachella, the “Rock Or Bust” tour has played to millions of fans around the world, setting records for attendance and sell out times. It is also the last tour to feature legendary vocalist Brian Johnson.
Renowned music photographer Ralph Larmann has captured AC/DC throughout this incredible tour, creating an amazing photographic documentary of the band and fans in action.
This 300mm square coffee table book has been produced in conjunction with the band and features an introduction by Angus Young. Printed on 170gsm art paper and with 264 pages in full colour, this coffee table book features hundreds of behind-the-scenes images and live action shots of key dates on the 2015 tour tour, finishing in Australia in December.

Why are the books shipping in October? It takes six weeks to print, bind and put together each edition and they have to allow a month to get people’s names in for the subscriber section of the book. It then takes a while to assemble and pack each edition for sending to customers via their courier service.
