???? Experience the Return of Legends: AC/DC’s Electrifying Comeback! ????
After a seven-year hiatus that left fans wondering if we’d ever witness their iconic riffs and electrifying screeches again, AC/DC made an unforgettable return to the stage at the Power Trip festival. Brian Johnson, the legendary frontman, graced the stage on the heels of his 76th birthday, surrounded by the rock gods we’ve missed for far too long.

In 2016, Brian Johnson’s hearing troubles threatened to silence the thunderous roar of AC/DC forever, leading to Axl Rose stepping in to complete their “Rock or Bust” tour. But a twist of fate, or perhaps divine intervention, guided Johnson to a YouTube discovery that resurrected his hearing, allowing the band to gift us with the epic “Power Up” album in 2020—a touching tribute to the late Malcolm Young.
As fate would have it, just when we thought the stage lights might dim permanently, COVID-19 put a temporary halt to AC/DC’s live performances. That was until that magical night at Power Trip, where Brian Johnson asked the crowd, “How cool is this?” Thousands of devil horns illuminated the night, and the anticipation reached a fever pitch as they unleashed the legendary riff of “Back in Black,” igniting a sonic explosion that shook the very core of rock ‘n’ roll.
Now, the question on every fan’s mind remains: Is this AC/DC’s triumphant return to the road? The band has been tight-lipped, but with the electrifying energy they brought to Power Trip, it’s hard to believe they’ll stay silent. The lineup boasts rock legends like Angus Young, Stevie Young, Cliff Williams, and the formidable Matt Laug, stepping in for Phil Rudd.
The fan fervor was undeniable, from devil horns to AC/DC merch flying off the shelves faster than a lightning strike. In fact, the line at the merch tent was so long it begged the question: Would someone miss AC/DC’s epic performance while waiting for their cherished AC/DC hoodie?
But beyond the merchandise frenzy, AC/DC’s performance proved one indisputable truth—they’re still too damn good to hang up their guitars and retire. With members all in their 60s and 70s (except for the powerhouse drummer, Matt Laug, at 55), their dedication to their craft is awe-inspiring.
Their setlist, spanning a little over two hours, was a relentless assault of classics: “Thunderstruck,” “Hells Bells,” “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap,” “Shoot to Thrill,” each delivered with deafening volume and an irresistible blend of raw power and finesse. The Youngs’ guitar work felt like they were scraping lightning from the sky, while Williams and Laug laid down grooves so tight, it was downright funky.
Brian Johnson’s voice, though ravaged by time, delivered the screeches and unintelligible lyrics we’ve come to love—a signature sound that sent shivers down the spines of fans. AC/DC proved, without a shadow of a doubt, that they remain the champions of rock ‘n’ roll.
So, will the legends of rock grace us with more live performances? Only time will tell. But for now, we can relish in the sheer brilliance of AC/DC’s epic comeback at the Power Trip festival, a testament to the eternal joy of a riff and a screech. ????????
