AC/DC is back! The rock band performed at Coachella on April 9 in what was their first concert in six years. Despite the lengthy absence, AC/DC didn’t miss a beat on stage at the music festival. They performed many of their classic hits and had the crowd on their feet!
AC/DC’s Coachella Performance: Rocks Out To ‘Thunderstruck’ & More
As soon as AC/DC started their performance of “Thunderstruck,” the crowd was roaring with applause. Lead singer Brian Johnson rocked out like nobody’s business on the Indio stage. They performed 20 songs over the course of two hours. What a show!
This performance is a huge deal. AC/DC has had to switch up their lineup over the years. Guitarist Malcolm Young retired and was replaced by his nephew Stevie Young. AC/DC’s former drummer Chris Slade took Phil Rudd’s place, who is currently dealing with legal charges in New Zealand.
Despite the shakeup, the band is better than ever. In addition to “Thunderstruck,” AC/DC performed “Back in Black,” “Dirty Deeds Done Cheap,” “You Shook Me All Night Long,” “Highway to Hell,” “Whole Lotta Rosie” and more.
For those of you who don’t want to miss amazing moments like this, check out the live stream of the music festival here. Drake, FKA twigs, Hozier and more are all tapped to perform this weekend.
So many of the biggest celebrities are heading to Indio to take in all of Coachella. Justin Bieber and Kendall Jenner were seen getting quite close before the music-filled weekend started.
