The Poor To Perform AC/DC’s Back In Black From Start To Finish

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.

Here is Back In Black by the numbers.

Hells Bells (1258 times)
Shoot To Thrill (1178 times)
What Do You Do For Money Honey (157 times)
Given The Dog A Bone (33 times)
Let Me Put My Love Into You (NEVER)
Back In Black (1262 times)
You Shook Me All Night Long (1160 times)
Have A Drink On Me (116 times)
Shake A Leg (ONCE)
Rock and Roll Ain’t Noise Pollution (489 times)

The Poor released their first record ‘Rude, Crude and Tattooed’ in 1992. It was produced by Rock Brewster and Bob Spencer of The Angels. Bob is now with Rose Tattoo. The Poor also opened for AC/DC back in the day and have played with KISS, The Angels, Alice In Chains and Van Halen.
