AC/DC Confirm Band Line-Up With New PWR UP Promo Shot
It’s been a ridiculously exciting week for AC/DC fans – from teaser videos to mysterious posters found. And now the band have just posted the best news of all (so far): they have confirmed their current line-up, featuring several returning members…
Joining lead guitarist Angus Young and rhythm guitarist Stevie Young, frontman Brian Johnson, bassist Cliff Williams and drummer Phil Rudd have all confirmed their places within AC/DC in 2020.
Late last year, Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider had hinted at this huge reunion, tweeting that Brian, Angus, Stevie, Cliff and Phil were back together, writing: “I’m focused on one band for the 2021 Superbowl half time show: AC/DC! Reuniting with new album next year, touring, celebrating 50 years together!”
He also added: “All four surviving members have reunited with tracks recorded by Malcolm while he was still alive. Malcolm’s nephew Stevie Young is replacing him (he’s done this a couple of times before). It’s as close as you can get to the original band.”
Now, with a new photo of them all together, a potential album title of Power Up out there, and an AC/DC teaser of ‘Are you ready?’ it looks like we can probably expect a more concrete music announcement on the way, too…
