AC/DC will plug into St. Paul next year.

The 80s rock group – which has been nominated for seven Grammys, picking up one win – is bringing its "Rock or Bust" tour to the Xcel Energy Center on Feb. 14, according to an email news release.

It's the fifth stop in the tour, sandwiched by Fargo (Feb. 11) and Chicago (Feb. 17).

Tickets are on sale Friday, Dec. 18 – details are on the band's website.

Billboard says the band has spent 2015 playing around Europe and the U.S. – though that did not include a stop in Minnesota.

The Recording Industry Association of America says AC/DC has sold 72 million albums. That's the 10th-highest total for any group, ever. The Beatles are at the top with 178 million.
