AC/DC played their first concert in more than 7 years

After seven years AC/DC is finally back on stage and made an incredible return with a breathtaking show in Indio, California at the Power Trip festival last saturday. The band played many classic songs from Bon Scott’s and Brian Johnson’s era also playing “Shot In The Dark” and “Demon Fire” from their most recent album “Power Up”, released in 2020.


Their current line-up has Brian Johnson (Vocals), Cliff Williams (Bass), Angus Young (Guitar) and Stevie Young (Guitar). The fans of the band have an expectation that the show at the Power Trip festival was a test event for the band to take the next step, which would be a world tour.

The Power Trip festival happened last weekend with Guns N’ Roses, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, AC/DC, Metallica and Tool at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
