AC/DC, two months at the concert: the playlist to prepare for the live show

It is not the official setlist, it is worth clarifying this immediately: the setlist should follow that of the concert last October on the stage of the Empire Polo Club in Idio, California. But the official announcement will only arrive on May 17, when the legendary Australian rock band will kick off their tour from the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen, Germany. The AC/DC – 101 playlist is mostly a way to prepare for the concert that next May 25th will see the “Back in black” group finally return to perform in Italy, on the stage of the RCF Arena in Reggio Emilia: the bill at the reverse officially starts today, exactly two months from the date circled in red on the calendar by the band's many Italian fans.

Under the stage of the arena built in the former Campovolo area, the Italian people of AC/DC will find themselves singing hits such as “High voltage”, “Thunderstruck”, “Back in black” itself and “You shook me all night long “, just to name a few. The concert is officially sold out: over 100 thousand spectators expected (the official capacity including tributes is 103 thousand spectators). Meanwhile, on March 15th, the first 9 albums of the series of gold-colored vinyl reissues curated by Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings to celebrate the fifty-year career of Angus Young and his associates (here is the Rockol special)namely “Back in Black”, “Highway to Hell”, “The Razors Edge”, “Powerage”, “For Those About to Rock (We Salute you)”, “High Voltage”, “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap “, “Who Made Who” and “Live”.

The one on May 25th in Reggio Emilia will be AC/DC's first concert in Italy in almost ten years: it was 2015 when the Australian rock band performed for the last time in our country. On that occasion Brian Johnson and his companions – who had not been on the Peninsula for five years – played on the stage of the Enzo e Dino Ferrari International Autodrome in Imola, acclaimed by over 90 thousand spectators.

With 50 years of legendary career behind them, AC/DC continues to fill stadiums around the world, selling millions of records every year and generating billions of streams. “Back in Black”, double diamond disc, is the “bestselling album by any band ever” and “third bestselling album by any artist” with over 50 million copies sold. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. In 2010 they won their first Grammy Award in the “Best Hard Rock Performance” category for “War Machine.” Their latest album is “Power Up” (2020), their seventeenth studio album, which debuted at number one in 21 countries. An endless story.
