AC/DC have confirmed the line-up for their first UK and European tour in eight years – see who’s joining the band on stage below.

Yesterday (February 12), the legendary Australian band revealed the dates for their 2024 ‘Power Trip’ tour, which will take them throughout the UK and Europe across the summer.

The tour – the band’s first since 2016 – will mark the official return of Brian Johnson on vocals, after hearing issues forced him to leave the band’s 2016 dates and be replaced by Axl Rose.

He will be joined by Angus and Stevie Young on guitars, and the band have confirmed that former Jane’s Addiction member Chris Chaney will be performing on bass. Drummer Matt Laug, who debuted with the band at their live return for the Power Trip festival in California last year, will continue to sit in for Phil Rudd.

The band will play 21 dates across the UK and Europe, beginning in Gelsenkirchen, Germany on May 17 and running through to August 17, where they will wrap up the tour in Dublin’s Croke Park.

In between, they will play two nights at London’s Wembley Stadium and gigs in Amsterdam, Paris and more.
