Brian Johnson talked recently in an interview with podcast “Fuelling Around” (Transcribed by Blabbermouth) about the band’s upcoming show at Power Trip Festival.

“We decided to do this wonderful show that they’ve put together out in the desert near Palm Springs, near Coachella. It’s all rock and roll bands. It’s fantastic. I think it’s just a statement to say that rock and roll is a legitimate form of music. It really has made a difference. Ozzy (Osbourne) is coming out of retirement so I’ll be able to see my old pals again. The Guns N’ Roses boys, the Metallica boys and the Iron Maiden boys — all in one field. Boy, what a party!”

“It’s going to be in a beautiful valley, near Coachella, but I don’t get involved in that kind of thing. I just like to turn up, get up and just rock my little socks off until I drop,” Brian Johnson said.

AC/DC’s most recent album “Power Up” was released in 2020 marking the return of Brian Johnson and drummer Phil Rudd to the band. It has praised tracks like “Realize”, “Shot In The Dark”, Through The Mists of Time”, “Witch’s Spell” and “Demon Fire”.

The band is currently formed by Angus Young (Guitar), Brian Johnson (Vocals), Cliff Williams (Bass), Phil Rudd (Drums) and Stevie Young (Guitar).
