More AC/DC More AC/DC

Could AC/DC return to Australia and tour in 2024? If these sources are correct, the iconic rockers may return for their first Australian tour since 2015.

Sharing a photo of the band’s setlist at Power Trip festival in Indio, California, from a few weeks ago – which is a pretty perfect setlist balancing the Bon Scott and Brian Johnson eras of AC/DC – Melbourne’s Cherry Bar owner James Young wrote on Facebook yesterday (20 October):

A little birdy told me last night that AC/DC will 100% be touring Australia in 2024, and this Set List that they recently played at Power Trip Festival in California will be the precise set list we get.

“If you want blood you got it!

“Now we all just need to pray that we get Melbourne-born drummer Phil Rudd back in the band for this Tour.

In addition to Young’s post, the Twitter account Oz Concert News posted last night, “It'd be cool if AC/DC toured next year.”

This is an account with connections within the music industry; posting a teaser the night before the Iron Maiden tour was announced this week is just one instance of the individual having correct intel on upcoming concerts hitting Australia.

In September, the Daily Star also reported on AC/DC tour rumours, writing, “More dates are being looked at for next year, some big shows.” And let’s not forget that AC/DC were reportedly looking at touring Australia in late 2020 and might have finally organised their return.

We’ll have to wait and see, but hopefully, the band’s ultra-successful show at Power Trip will inspire them to announce a 2024 world tour.

Prior to Power Trip, AC/DC last performed in September 2016 – with Guns N’ Roses vocalist Axl Rose – while singer Brian Johnson hadn’t performed with them since February 2016 after dealing with severe hearing issues. Johnson returned to the band a few years later thanks to new in-ear monitor technology
