Angus Young and Brian Johnson is bringing back ACDC back into the music scene with a new album, a tour, and rocking out the good ol’ tunes at the Domain Stadium last Friday night. Who’s the new band members?
As reported by Perth Now, ACDC performed at the Domain Stadium last Friday night. As Brian Johnston, the original singer for the band announced, “Tonight, together, we are going to make some rock ‘n’ roll. The party starts right now,” the crowd went thunderstruck as they heard old songs being played by their original, old selves.
The band was last seen performing at the same venue last 2010 during their Black Ice World Tour. They had a two-hour set show, which incorporated the original audience-killin’ tracks such as “Shoot to Thrill,” “Hell Ain’t A Bad Place To Be,” and the ever-famous “Back in Black.”
As reported by Sydney Morning Herald, after the Hives performed their piece, the lead singer Pelle Almqvist screamed, “ACDC sent me to train you people. Are you ready to rock n’ roll?”
After which, ACDC and its members entered the stage with bright visuals, pyrotechnics and a plunging rendition of titular track “Rock or Bust.” Johnson then hailed, “It’s good to see you again!”
There were encores for the tracks “Highway to Hell” and “For Those About To Rock (We Salute You) were the crowd pleasers.
At present, ACDC is being managed by the original band members Angus Young and Brian Johnson, the lead guitarists and the band’s front man respectively. The other members, unfortunately, are not collaborating with them for the new album. Malcolm Young had to bow out due to ailments and Phil Rudd was criminally convicted. However, their replacements were Young’s nephew, Stevie Young, to play the rhythm guitar and Chris Slade to step in as band’s new drummer. They are currently making the band’s 17th studio album, “Rock or Bust.”
