Since last November, the rumor mill has been simmering about an AC/DC stadium tour. Now it’s clear: the Australian hard rockers are actually returning to Germany for nine concerts this summer. Advance sales will start in a few days.
Attentive fans have suspected it for a while, but now the hard rock bomb has officially burst: AC/DC are going on a world tour in the summer and are also coming to Germany. This information unintentionally became known for the first time in November, when Munich’s mayor Dieter Reiter spilled the beans to Bayerischer Rundfunk.
“I didn’t know it was so secret,” he said. “But it was simply an answer to a question that arose in the city council – namely, why an opening concert of the Euro 2024 fan festival is not taking place in the Olympic Stadium. (…) And I also think AC/DC will be there fill the Olympic Stadium.” Back then we were talking about June 12th and on that day Ed Sheeran had to go to Theresienwiese.
“Are you ready?”
Last week it became clear to even the last doubters that there might be something to the rumors. AC/DC published a video on their Instagram page with the words “Are your ready”, followed by a countdown that has now expired.
So it’s official: AC/DC are making several stops in Germany. In addition to Munich, where another concert will be played on June 9th, there are Gelsenkirchen (May 17th and 21st), Dresden (June 16th), Hockenheim (July 13th), Stuttgart (July 17th), Nuremberg (June 27th). . July) and Hanover (July 31) on the Australian tour program. The living hard rock legends will play a total of nine concerts on German soil. Advance sales start next Friday (February 16th) at 10 a.m.
It is still unclear which line-up AC/DC will appear in. At least there could be a change on the bass. Cliff Williams announced his retirement at the end of the “Rock Or Bust” tour in 2016. He returned to record the album “Power Up” in 2020 and the Power Trip Festival in 2023. In a podcast interview three years ago, he made it clear that he no longer wanted to go on tour. It remains to be seen whether he will allow his colleagues to persuade him to do so again.
