Following the band’s comeback to live performance after a seven-year hiatus with Brian Johnson, Angus Young, and Cliff Williams, AC/DC tour dates for 2024 are being considered. When AC/DC’s Rock or Bust world tour came to an end in 2016, Angus Young was the final surviving original band member. Axl Rose took over as lead singer when Brian Johnson, who had been at risk of hearing loss, retired due to dementia, couldn’t tour because of continuous legal issues, and then bassist Cliff Williams announced his retirement. Malcolm tragically passed away from the symptoms of dementia a year later, and it appeared that the legendary rock group was finished.
Then, though, rumors of a new album started to circulate, and in 2020, Cliff came out of retirement to record Power Up. After three years, AC/DC just gave their first live performance in seven at the Power Trip Festival in Indio, California. Along with Matt Laug filling in for Rudd on the drums, Brian, Cliff, and Stevie Young were back with Angus. On Saturday night, the rockers gave a 24-song set that included the live debuts of Demon Fire and Shot in the Dark as well as timeless hits like Back in Black, Thunderstruck, and Highway to Hell. Even though a 2024 tour is widely rumored, this was AC/DC’s sole officially scheduled live performance.
