Promoters have confirmed that alcohol will be available at AC/DC's upcoming Auckland show after conflicting reports suggested it could be the band's first dry concert.
The Waitemata Local Board voted in support of a temporary liquor ban before and after the band's concert at Western Springs on December 15.
That led some overseas publications to report the entire show was dry. NME ran a story that said fans had been "banned from drinking alcohol" at AC/DC/s New Zealand concert.
But promoters today issued a statement confirming the liquor ban was only around the venue before and after the group's concert.

"Contrary to recent media reports ... alcohol will be available for purchase inside the stadium," the press release said.
Full bar services will be available inside the venue.
The temporary liquor ban means anyone caught pre-loading near the site or carrying alcohol out of the venue could be arrested and issued with a $250 fine.
Up to 55,000 fans were expected to attend the Tuesday night concert, AC/DC's first in New Zealand since 2010.
