AC/DC will return to European stages this summer after releasing their seventeenth studio album “Power Up”, in 2020, the first album released by AC/DC after the death of founding member, leader, and guitarist Malcolm Young, who passed away in 2017 from dementia.

The record was nominated for Best Rock Album at the 64th Grammy Awards. The Australian band has received several nominations in the past but only holds one award from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States, which they won in 2010. They took home the Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance for the song “War Machine” from “Black Ice.”

 

 

The 2024 “Power Up Tour” aka “PWR/UP Tour” kicks off in Germany on May 17th and wraps up in Ireland on August 17th.

The band’s lineup at the 2024 European “Power Up Tour” will consist of vocalist Brian Johnson, guitarists Angus and Stevie Young, drummer Matt Laug, and the newest addition to the group’s lineup, bassist Chris Chaney.

Chris Chaney is known for his past work with Jane’s Addiction. He was a member of Alanis Morissette’s band for six years and has also played with Taylor Hawkins & The Coattail Riders.

Matt Laug, formerly of Alice Cooper, who played with the band at the Power Trip festival last year, is also on the lineup for the new tour.

The last time they toured the European continent was in 2014, with the “Rock or Bust” album tour.

 


AC/DC Concert Schedule for 2024: European “Power Up Tour

 

Surprisingly the news of the AC/DC European tour didn’t leak from official channels. In November of last year, Munich’s mayor, Dieter Reiter, inadvertently spilled the beans during a meeting, revealing plans for an AC/DC concert in the city this year. He later clarified, as quoted by British radio station Planet Radio, that he “didn’t realize it was supposed to be a secret.

This concert is now confirmed and will take place at Munich’s Olympic Stadium on June 12th.

AC/DC Performed at The Power Trip Music Festival In 2023

 

On October 7th, 2023, AC/DC made their first concert appearance in seven years at the Power Trip Festival in Indio, California, where Metallica also performed. For this show, the band’s lineup featured classic members Brian Johnson on vocals, Angus Young on guitar, Cliff Williams on bass, Stevie Young on guitar, and Matt Laug on drums.

Guns N’ Roses and Iron Maiden set the bar high with their performances on the event’s opening night, but it was clear that AC/DC rose to the challenge.

The concert kicked off with a surprise: “If You Want Blood (You’ve Got It)”. This was the first time AC/DC had started a show with a song other than “Highway To Hell”, and from then on, the quartet threw themselves with considerable grit into a 24-song set, performing classic after classic, with the next song being the anthemic “Back In Black”, followed by other fan favorites such as “Thunderstruck”, “Hells Bells”, “You Shook Me All Night Long” or “Highway To Hell”.

AC/DC’s electrifying set at the Power Trip Festival saw the band debuting the live performances of singles “Demon Fire” and “Shot In The Dark.” As expected, for the encore, they returned to the classics, delivering rousing renditions of “T.N.T.” and “For Those About To Rock (We Salute You).”

It’s worth noting that AC/DC’s last concert had taken place in September 2016, with Axl Rose filling in for Johnson, who was suffering from hearing problems.
