Set List: AC/DC Go Home With First Date of Australian Tour

by Paul Cashmere, Noise11

The AC/DC ‘Rock Or Bust’ tour is officially open for business in Australia with the band kicking off the tour where it all began 42 years ago … Sydney.

The ‘Rock Or Bust’ tour is a bittersweet event, marking the first time founder Malcolm Young is not with the band. In his place is his nephew Stevie Young. Stevie contributed guitar to the recent AC/DC ‘Rock Or Bust’ album before Malcolm left the band he started due to illness but Malcolm had co-written many of the songs when he was still well enough to work with his brother Angus. Three of those songs Rock Or Bust, Play Ball and Baptism of Fire feature in the show.

It’s A Long Way To The Top is the one song AC/DC refuse to play. AC/DC last played the classic on December 17, 1979, just two months before Bon Scott died. Angus and Malcolm retired the song as a mark of respect to Bon but were heard performing a piece of It’s A Long Way To The Top during rehearsals at ANZ Stadium on Wednesday.
