AC/DC featured in Telus Mobility campaign

AC/DC doesn’t have to tour these days to make money.

There’s the new AC/DC Monopoly game on its way in August, and the band recently licensed one of their classics for use in a commercial for a phone company.

The AC/DC classic “Thunderstruck” is featured in the spring 2011 Telus Mobility campaign called “Rock & Roll.”

In the U.S., "Live At River Plate" sold 19,000 copies in its first week of release.
