The Poor will take AC/DC’s iconic ‘Back In Black’ on tour across Australia and thrash it from start to finish.
‘Back In Black’ is AC/DC’s most successful album and one of the most successful albums of all time. It is estimated to have sold over 50 million copies, 22 million of those in the USA alone.
Considering how well the album has done, some of the songs are quite rare for AC/DC performances. ‘Let Me Put My Love Into You’ has never been played live by AC/DC and ‘Shake A Leg’ was only ever played once in 1980. ‘Given The Dog A Bone’ didn’t make an AC/DC setlist until 2016 and has only been performed in 2016.
The Poor will perform ‘Back In Black’ to mark the 40th anniversary of the original AC/DC album in 1980.
