AC/DC Begin ‘Rock or Bust’ Tour
Slade initially returned for performances at the Grammys and then at the Coachella music festival, which marked AC/DC's first concert since the health-related retirement of guitarist Malcolm Young. The Arnhem show confirmed that Slade, who played with the band from 1989-94, will be sticking around.
Longtime AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd remains absent as he deals with ongoing legal battles involving charges of threatening to kill, and possession of methamphetamine and cannabis. Meanwhile, Young's nephew Stevie has taken over for Malcolm.
As at Coachella, AC/DC played a 20-song set yesterday, but they slotted the fest's opening cut, "Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be," third, and kicking off their Gelredome show with Rock or Bust's title track. They also played "Baptism by Fire" and "Play Ball" from the new album, and again ended the set with the traditional "For Those About to Rock."
AC/DC return to North America this summer for 13 dates between Aug. 22 and Sept. 28. You can see fan-filmed video from the Netherlands show above and below, and the set list below.
