AC/DC announces 2024 Power Up European Tour

The trek kicks off this summer

AC/DC has unveiled the 2024 Power Up European Tour for this summer, its first tour in eight years. The 21-date trek will see the legendary Australian rockers perform shows across Germany, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, England, Slovakia, Belgium, France and Ireland with two nights in some cities.

Tickets go on sale starting on Friday, February 16th at 9 am local time.

The new lineup will feature Brian Johnson on vocals, Angus and Stevie Young on guitar, Matt Laug on drums, and Chris Chaney replacing Cliff Williams on bass.

The band, which teased the announcement with a countdown clock on its website, has not toured since it concluded its Rock or Bust Tour in September 2016. The trek saw the group perform more than 80 shows in 21 countries. Guns N Roses frontman Axl Rose performed the final 24 dates after Brian Johnson was forced to sit out for health reasons. Williams retired following the trek but reunited to perform at last year’s Power Trip appearance in Indio, CA which marked the group’s first live concert in seven years.

For Power Trip, the group recruited American musician Matt Laug to play drums as longtime drummer Phil Rudd was allegedly unable to enter the US stemming to 2015 legal issues in his native of New Zealand.

The band is touring in support of its latest album, Power Up, which was released in 2020 and features both Johnson and Williams in their respective roles.
