AC/DC Kick Off Power Up Tour In Germany #Setlist

On so it begins, AC/DC are back on tour for 2024 with the Power Up world tour kicking off in lesser-known location of Gelsenkirchen, Germany on Friday (17 May 2024).

Why Gelsenkirchen? AC/DC have a habit of always starting their tours in a remote location. Reason: Less media, less review and more options for them to tweak the tour. (The first show of the Rock Or Bust tour in 2015 was in Arnhem, the Netherlands, a city near the Germany with a population of 150,000.

There were no surprises with the setlist. There were exactly the same songs and same amount of songs as there were for Power Trip at Indio, California on 7 October 2023. There was just a bit of shuffling with ‘You Shook Me All Night Long’ moving up, ‘Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap’ moving down and ‘Rock and Roll Train’ changing a few places.

AC/DC 2024 has Chris Chaney on Bass and Matt Laug on Drums with Brian Johnson on Vocals, Stevie Young on Rhythm Guitar and Angus Young on Lead Guitar. Cliff Williams performed at Power Trip in 2023 but has decided not to go on this tour. Bass player Chris Chaney was a member of Jane’s Addiction, Alanis Morissette’s band and Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders. Matt Laug has also played with Alanis as well as Slash and Alice Cooper.
