AC/DC unveil photo of new band line-up before first tour in eight years

AC/DC have shared a photo of their new line-up ahead of their first tour in eight years.

The current incarnation of the legendary Australian rock band features classic members Brian Johnson (vocals) and Angus Young on vocals and lead guitar respectively alongside rhythm guitarist Stevie Young, drummer Matt Laug, and bassist Chris Chaney.

Stevie Young is the nephew of Angus and has been playing with the band for several years, initially filling in for Malcolm Young when he was diagnosed with dementia. After he passed away in 2017, Stevie remained with the band.

Laug, meanwhile, made his debut with AC/DC at Power Trip festival in Indio, California back in October after classic drummer Phil Rudd revealed he would not be performing at what was the band’s first live show in seven years.

Chaney is best known for his time playing in Jane’s Addiction and recently replaced Cliff Williams after he retired from touring.

Johnson is returning to the fold after leaving the band in 2016 due to hearing issues, which saw him replaced by Axl Rose.

The "Power Up" tour – in support of their 2020 album of the same name – will kick off in the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen, Germany on May 17, followed by dates in Spain, Austria, Switzerland and more.

The run also includes two dates at London’s Wembley Stadium on July 3 and 7, before they continue on to more mainland Europe dates. The tour will wrap up at Dublin’s Croke Park+ on August 17.

Meanwhile, Jet‘s Nic Cester has revealed that he had auditioned to be in AC/DC before they hired Rose.
