AC/DC fans have something to celebrate as the legendary band has announced their first tour in eight years. The tour will feature their 2020 album, Power Up, and will take place in the United Kingdom and Europe from May to August. In addition to the tour announcement, the band revealed that Chris Chaney, former bassist of Jane’s Addiction, will be joining them to replace Cliff Williams. The lineup for the tour includes Brian Johnson, Angus Young, Matt Laug, and Stevie Young.
The last time AC/DC went on tour was in 2016, when Brian Johnson had to leave the group due to hearing problems and Axl Rose of Guns N’ Roses took over. After that tour, Williams also left the group. However, Johnson, Williams, and drummer Phil Rudd reunited to record Power Up, which was released during the pandemic. The band played their first show in seven years last October at Indio’s Power Trip festival, where Rudd was replaced by Laug. For the upcoming tour, Williams will be returning to the band.
As of now, it is unknown if AC/DC will be visiting other continents. However, there have been rumors that they will be performing at Rock in Rio in September, which has fans in Argentina and the rest of the region excited. The last time AC/DC played in Argentina was in December 2009, when they gave three shows at the Monumental, where the band’s first live album was recorded.
Overall, AC/DC fans have a lot to look forward to with the upcoming tour and the addition of Chris Chaney to the band. It’s an exciting time for fans of the legendary rock band.
