After a seven-year break, AC/DC is making their comeback on Saturday, October 6, at the Power Trip Festival in Indio, California. The band is adding an exciting twist to this event by launching a special project, as revealed on their official website.
In their statement, the band shared:
“After seven years, AC/DC celebrates their triumphant return to the stage at Power Trip Festival in Indio, CA on Saturday, October 7. In tandem with their anxiously awaited headline festival appearance, the band launches an exclusive AC/DC High Voltage Dive Bar in Indio, California, 10 minutes from the Power Trip festival.”
AC/DC also disclosed the opening dates and hours, as well as what visitors can expect inside:
“The bar is located at 82971 Bliss Ave in Indio, CA, and will be open daily from October 5 through October 8 from 11:00 am until 10:00 pm. It’s the ultimate way to connect and plug in with fellow AC/DC fans over the weekend and check out iconic AC/DC props and exclusive merch.”
Furthermore, the dive bar will feature a beer garden, a tattoo lounge, local food trucks, and a raffle where attendees have a chance to win either a Gibson SG Guitar or a Gretsch Malcolm Young Signature Jet.
It’s worth noting that AC/DC’s singer, Brian Johnson, had previously faced hearing loss and temporarily stepped away from the band for treatment and recovery. However, he has made a successful return to the stage, as confirmed by Greg Billings in a recent appearance on AC/DC Beyond the Thunder. Billings stated:
“I just spent the week with Brian, and he’s all excited about the Power Trip show. He’s been getting in shape. He’s so fired up. They’re going to rehearse for five weeks doing nothing but playing.”
AC/DC’s Headline Performance at Power Trip Festival
Despite the fact that AC/DC released their last album, Power Up, three years ago, their headline performance at the Power Trip Festival is a significant moment as it marks their return to the live stage after a seven-year absence. Fans have been eagerly awaiting this comeback, and the excitement is palpable.
What makes this event even more thrilling is the lineup of other iconic rock bands sharing the stage. Joining AC/DC at the festival are legendary acts like Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, and Iron Maiden. This gathering of rock legends promises an unforgettable weekend filled with music, nostalgia, and pure rock and roll energy. It’s a rare opportunity for fans to see multiple iconic bands come together to celebrate the enduring spirit of rock music.
