AC/DC play first show with new lineup at Coachella

Posted by on April 13, 2015


AC/DC stuck out like a sore thumb at Coachella. Easily old enough to be many in attendance’s grandfathers, it was a gutsy booking for the festival, and one of only a few heavy rock bands to play the annual festival. The show also was their first show with a new lineup, as Stevie Young filled in for his ailing cousin Malcolm and Chris Slade took back the drum stool from Phil Rudd (who’s had some legal issues to deal with). Yet by all accounts, it was a successful one, as the band powered through 20 songs. And according to the L.A. Times, while they might not have held on to the crowd for the whole set, many of whom were probably conceived to Back in Black, they definitely had them for at least a while.

Here’s what the band played:

“Hell Ain’t A Bad Place To Be”
“Shot Down In Flames”
“Back In Black”
“Rock Or Bust”
“Shoot To Thrill”
“Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap”
“Play Ball”
“The Jack”
“Hells Bells”
“Baptism of Fire”
“You Shook Me All Night Long”
“Have A Drink On Me”
“Sin City”
“Rock ‘n’ Roll Train”
“Whole Lotta Rosie”
“Let There Be Rock”

“Highway To Hell”
“For Those About To Rock”
