That's eye watering isn't it.

However no doubt both dates will sell out well before the shows are played. 90,000 is apparently the capacity.

£129:25 [£115 + 'fees'] or £145:75 [£130 + 'fees']

This is the info that I have... whether it's genuine or not, I don't know

It's astonishingly expensive for a band many years past its peak, something its members would probably acknowledge.

These two concert dates will have great sentimental value for the band and everyone in attendance and a brilliant payday for the legendary musicians.

I'm not too sure they are past their peak really. Admittedly not young anymore but apparently they stole the show at the Californian three day Power Trip festival back in October.

Only six bands played, two a night. AC/DC, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Guns N' Roses and Tool.

Certainly album wise their last three have been better than anything since Back in Black in 1980.

They were playing in much smaller venues last time so there must be some good interest to see the band. Not for me though I love the David Gilmour era of Floyd.

I think of AC/DC's prime being the early- to mid-1980s, around the releases of Back in Black, For Those About to Rock…, Flick of the Switch, and Fly on the Wall.

That seemed to be the period when Brian Johnson's voice was strongest, with Malcolm Young on rhythm guitar and backing vocals, and when Angus Young could still (almost effortlessly) duckwalk across the stage whilst playing the guitar solos, making the live shows an amazing mix of musical brilliance and showmanship.

Although I haven't seen any recent live performances, I'd be pleasantly surprised if they could – as Angus approaches his 70th birthday – still match that energy and deliver a live performance that would be value for money for those attending the Wembley gigs.

They'll definitely deliver value for money. That period you mention was probably AC/DC's actual worst years. Wikipedia even has a chapter on those years titled Line-up changes and commercial decline (1983–1990)

The next chapters are titled Popularity regained (1990–1999) and Popularity confirmed (1999–2008).

I was probably thinking of the period between Brian Johnson joining in 1980 and the declining quality of their output when, if memory serves, the performances at the beginning of the second DVD of the Family Jewels release were my favourite.

Although I don't have any media with concert footage of the 1992-2008 concerts, I imagine they would be outstanding gigs, hugely entertaining and with brilliant set lists.
