AC/DC have shared a video announcing that the tour will be called “Power Up”. The reactions of the South American fans were surprised, because they thought that perhaps some countries from our continent would be announced.

However, it is expected that more dates will be announced in the future, some for South America and also for North America, but there is no confirmation on this matter yet.

The musicians

Now without Malcom Young, the famous rhythm guitarist and brother of Angus, who died on November 18, 2017, the question is how he will form the band for this new tour.

According to AC/DC’s publications on their social networks, drummer Phil Rudd and bassist Cliff Williams will not be part of the Australian band on their next venture.

The group’s lineup will therefore be composed of guitarist Angus Young, singer Brian Johnson and guitarist Stevie Young (Angus’ nephew), with the addition of Matt Laug, as in Power Trip, on drums and the former bassist of Jane’s Addiction Chris Chaney.
