AC/DC are an Australian hard rock band from Sydney, consisting of guitarists Angus Young and Stevie Young, bass player Cliff Williams, and drummer Chris Slade. Longtime frontman Brian Johnson is replaced by Axl Rose on their current tour.
Formed in 1973, by Young, his brother Malcom, with singer Bon Scott joining in 1974. The band released their debut album, ‘High Voltage’, in 1974, followed by ‘T.N.T.’ in 1975, before the band signed to Atlantic Records in 1976, releasing ‘Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap’ and ‘Let There Be Rock’ in 1977.
The band released ‘Powerage’ in 1978, before their major breakthrough with the album, ‘Highway to Hell’ in 1979, hitting #17 in the Billboard Hot 200. Scott died in 1980 and was replaced by Brian Johnson. ‘Back in Black’ was released in 1980, and hit #1 in the UK Albums Chart. ‘For Those About to Rock We Salute You’ came out in 1981, ‘Flick of the Switch’ in 1983, and ‘Fly on the Wall’ in 1985, and have continued to release albums ever since, the latest being 2014’s ‘Rock or Bust’.
The band have headlined their own shows and tours across the world, including the Black Ice World Tour, between 2008-2010, a co-headline tour with The Rolling Stones in 2003, The Razors Edge World Tour, and the If You Want Blood Tour. The band kicked of their Rock Or Bust Tour in 2015, with summer shows in Dublin, Glasgow and at London’s Wembley Stadium.
AC/DC are set to return to the UK in the summer of 2016, bringing their Rock Or Bust Tour to London and Manchester, with Axl Rose, replacing Brian Johnson.

I went to Back in Black tour in Birmingham and black ice in Amsterdam then rock or bust in Glasgow, it was great. The support act, Vintage Trouble were good, better than expected and the whole atmosphere was the best! We all sang along and the stadium was buzzing! All the best AC/DC songs and I could not hope for better. Only problem was transport after, absolute nightmare, like the city had shut. Roll on next tour ( last one )
Saw AC/DC for the first time on the Black Ice tour. We flew to Sofia Bulgaria for the opening show of the final leg of the tour and what sadly turned out to be the last ever shows with original founding member Mal Young.
Sat on the pitch of the famed Vasil Levski football stadium basking in the warm Bulgarian sun we shared many beers and chatted with fans as we awaited the big show.
By 8pm the atmosphere was electric, not just because one of the biggest bands in the world were about to start but also as it transpired because this was the first time AC/DC had ever played in Bulgaria. Around 8.45 the video screens light and the huge speaker banks rumble. An animated video of Angus driving a train serves as the initial build up for what we can all assume will be new single Rock n Roll Train. As a life size steam engine blasts through the stage leaving our mouths a gasp our predictions proved well founded.
What follows is a blistering 2 and a half hour set filled with all the biggest hits. You Shook Me All Night Long, TNT, Highway To Hell are all performed in the flawless way one expects from Australia's greatest export. As loved by audiences their hits are the now famous stage sets have grown to meet equal rapture and delight. From Hells Bells giant bell swinging from the rafters to the much loved 50 foot inflatable Rosie who provides (as if it were needed)a highly amusing visual interpretation of the songs heroin.
Angus continues to provide guitar solos that Hendrix would be proud to call his own and accompanied by Brian Johnson's inimitable rasp it seems this band is impervious to age.
The show ends as usual with For Those About To Rock (We Salute You). A call to arms for rock fans of any age, sex and nationality. Accompanied of course with the now obligatory cannons which high above the gargantuan stage structure fire pyro illuminating the night sky.
