AC/DC comes to Rock Band

18 classic tracks to salute yourself with
Can't get tickets to AC/DC? Well, the band has extended its North American tour (details below), but barring that, you can salute those about to rock with the new AC/DC Live: Rock Band Track Pack.
All of which means that any bedroom, living room, basement, attic or wherever you have your Rock Band set up in can become an AC/DC concert hall.
The AC/DC Live: Rock Band Track Pack will feature the master recordings from the band's DVD Live At Donnington. It's the first time that Rock Band has focused on one group, and it also marks the first time that AC/DC has offered an entire album for game play.
The recordings were specially remixed by Mike Fraser, who mixed the band's forthcoming Black Ice (and MusicRadar can vouch for the stellar sound quality of that album!). The game features 18 tracks, with more than 99 minutes of play for each instrument.
Here's the tracklising:
Shoot To Thrill
Back In Black
Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be
Fire Your Guns
Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
Whole Lotta Rosie
You Shook Me All Night Long
Let There Be Rock
Highway To Hell
For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)
As is the case with Black Ice, Wal-Mart will be the exclusive US retailer for the AC/DC Live; Rock Band Track Pack in November. The game will be available in December through multiple retailers in Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
Mentioned above, AC/DC have extended their North American tour into early 2009. New dates begin Dec. 20 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and run through Jan. 31 in Nashville, Tennesee. For a complete list of dates, click here.
