Concerts

AC/DC played their first show in seven years over the weekend. Here’s video

Power Trip, the new heritage hard rock festival in Indio, California, on the same site as the annual Coachella event was held over the weekend. The last time promoters AEG tried something like this with Desert Trip in 2016 (Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Roger Waters, Neil Young, and The Who), it was a massive success. Seven years later, they pulled it off again.

This time, promoters again wrangled a pretty awesome lineup.

Video has started to circulate, starting with AC/DC’s first performance in seven years. There’s speculation that this might be the last time they ever play anywhere. If this was the finale, all reviews say they went out with a bang. Let’s start with the setlist.
