AC/DC, a famous rock band, recently shared a new version of an old video from 1976. This video shows them performing their song “Jailbreak” in London, England. The band put up the video online with a note saying, “Not aired in 40 years, check out this promo clip of the band performing ‘Jailbreak’, shot in London in July 1976, remastered in HD!” Fans were excited because this was the first time in 40 years that this footage was shown.

A Look Back on AC/DC’s Breakout Moment & Forward to Their Return to the Stage

The performance happened at the Wimbledon Theatre in London on July 13, 1976. This show was AC/DC’s first TV appearance outside of Australia. It was part of a program called “Super Pop – Rollin’ Bolan”. At this event, the members of AC/DC were Bon Scott (the singer), Angus Young and Malcolm Young (the guitarists), Phil Rudd (the drummer), and Mark Evans (the bass player). They played three songs that day: “Live Wire”, “Can I Sit Next To You Girl”, and “Jailbreak”. The first two songs are from their album “High Voltage”, and “Jailbreak” is from another album called “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap”.

AC/DC has also announced their upcoming tour in Europe. The tour is called “Power Up” and will start in May and end in August. For this tour, the band members will be Brian Johnson (singer), Angus Young and Stevie Young (guitarists), Matt Laug (drummer), and Chris Chaney (bass player). This tour will be AC/DC’s first series of shows in seven years. Their last concert was in October 2023 in Indio, California, at the Power Trip festival.

Line-up Changes, New Music, and Remastered Classics

The band didn’t explain why Phil Rudd, the drummer who has been with AC/DC off and on, won’t be on this tour. Rudd was part of the band when they made their latest album, “Power Up”, which was released in 2020. He had to leave the band for a while after he got into trouble with the law in New Zealand in 2015. Because of this, he was replaced by Chris Slade during the “Rock Or Bust” tour. Slade had played with AC/DC before, from 1989 to 1994.

“Power Up” is AC/DC’s newest album. It was made in 2018 in Vancouver with Brendan O’Brien as the producer. O’Brien has worked with the band before, on their albums “Black Ice” and “Rock Or Bust”.
