The Stiff Upper Lip World Tour was a concert tour by AC/DC in support of their first album made in the 21st century, Stiff Upper Lip. It was their first album since 1995's Ballbreaker. The stage show featured the Angus statue on the cover of Stiff Upper Lip, AC/DC nicknamed him "Junior". During the show "Junior" shoots smoke out of its mouth, fire coming out of the head of its guitar. In the outdoor European stadium shows, the top of the stage featured two Angus devil hats. The 14 June Munich, Germany show was filmed for Stiff Upper Lip Live. A few more shows were filmed for AC/DC's definitive box set Plug Me In released in 2007.

A fan was fatally injured at the 14 October show in Ghent, Belgium when he fell several metres onto a concrete floor.[1] A fan suffered a head injury in Nashville, Tennessee when she was pushed from behind.[citation needed] In Phoenix, AZ, a "fan" chucked two bottles of beer at Angus Young and was brought out of the concert by security during the breakdown of "Bad Boy Boogie".
