Capturing a New Era: AC/DC’s Lineup Evolution

The fresh lineup photo captures the essence of AC/DC’s enduring spirit, featuring stalwarts Brian Johnson and Angus Young, alongside Stevie Young, and introducing drummer Matt Laug and bassist Chris Chaney. The latter are stepping in for Phil Rudd and Cliff Williams, respectively, with Chaney taking over duties from Williams, who initially retired after the Rock Or Bust tour but made a return for the 2020’s Power Up album. Laug, known for his contribution to the Power Trip and now rejoining for the Power Up tour, along with Chaney, who boasts an impressive resume including his time with Jane’s Addiction and performing at the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert at Wembley Stadium, are poised to bring a new dynamic to the group’s sound.

The announcement was accompanied by a photo shared on AC/DC’s social media platforms, capturing the band in a candid moment, gearing up for their tour. Helmed by Christie Goodwin, a name synonymous with visually arresting music photography, the image is more than just a band portrait; it’s a statement of readiness and revitalization. The band captioned this momentous share with, “In the studio, gearing up for the Power Up tour kicking off in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, in just one week!” showcasing their anticipation and readiness to hit the road.
