According to The Pulse Of Radio, a 22-year-old woman was struck by a vehicle and died after crossing the Trans-Canada Highway Saturday night as she was leaving an AC/DC concert at Magnetic Hill in Moncton, NB, Canada.
The woman, Isabelle Beaulieu, was pronounced dead at the hospital.
This fatality follows close on the heels of the recent tragic death of 23-year-old University of Colorado student Jannik Anderson, who was struck and killed by a train in Indio, California, following AC/DC‘s performance at Coachella in April.
While official ticket sales have not been released, Global News estimated that 40,000 people attended the show. Afterwards, the walk back to a nearby campsite was “chaos,” a fan told the paper.
AC/DC‘s sixteenth studio album, “Rock Or Bust”, has sold around 545,000 copies since debuting at No. 3 on the Billboard album chart back in December.
It’s the band’s first album without founding guitarist Malcolm Young, who is suffering from dementia. He has been replaced by nephew Stevie Young.
AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was arrested last November at his home in Tauranga on charges of threatening to kill and possession of methamphetamine and cannabis.
Although Rudd played on “Rock Or Bust”, he did not appear in photos or videos for the disc.
One-time AC/DC drummer Chris Slade officially joined the band’s lineup for its performance on the February 8 Grammy Awards telecast. Slade is also behind the kit for the group’s current world tour.
The band’s North American tour will wrap on September 28 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
