AC/DC are set to head on tour for the first time in eight years, with a new European stint announced yesterday (Monday). 

The ‘Power Up’ European stadium tour will kick off in May and features stops at Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen, Germany; RCF Arena in Reggio Emilia, Italy; La Cartuja Stadium in Seville, Spain; Johan Cruyff Arena in the Netherlands and more.

There will be further stops in Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Belgium and France.

Two shows have been planned for Wembley Stadium in London in July, as well as a show to round off the tour at Dublin’s Croke Park in August.

The band’s line-up will consist of singer Brian Johnson, guitarists Angus and Stevie Young, drummer Matt Laug (who played with the legendary rock group for their one-off performance at heavy metal festival Power Trip last year) and Chris Chaney in place of Cliff Williams on bass guitar.

In a statement, AC/DC said: “We are thrilled to finally announce the ‘Power Up’ European Tour. Angus, Brian, Stevie and Matt will be joined by Chris Chaney to carry the torch for Cliff.”

Williams retired in 2016, but did make an appearance for Power Trip.

Tickets will go on sale on February 16.
