Old school rock tours are all the rage these days and some of the biggest names in rock history have rebooted their bands over the last couple years for major world tours. Internationally, bands like Queen, AC/DC and the Rolling Stones have taken to the road for a string of dates, and similarly to U.S. performances, many of the shows are some of the top-priced tours across the globe.

Australian rockers AC/DC are set to hit launch tours dates for May and June, Queen has a handful of solo dates and festival appearances overseas and the Rolling Stones are slated for just a few dates in Latin America this month. The below pricing information, with data provided by Ticketbis.

Queen + Adam Lambert first joined forces in 2009 and eventually went on to launch a major tour in the summer of 2014. American Idol alum, Adam Lambert, filled the role of Freddie Mercury when he joined Queen as vocalist, and the response from long-time Queen fans has been solid on the road. According to Pollstar, the dynamic group grossed $37 million in ticket sales in 2014 alone, prompting additional dates across the globe. Queen and Lambert are scheduled to hit a bunch of countries internationally, including Spain, Germany and Portugal, and tickets for the tour are in high demand. As it stands, the cheapest date on their tour route is their May 22 stop in Barcelona, where the cheapest ticket can be purchased for just $76.
