World News – US – AC / DC confirms 2020 lineup, reveals first official photo of reunited group


The lineup of the Rock or Bust era, with singer Brian Johnson and drummer Phil Rudd, is back

In the wake of AC / DC’s recent teaser on their social media sites of a short music video featuring their iconic lightning bolt, the group officially released the first photo of the reunited group

As speculated, the official lineup for AC / DC 2020 is made up of stalwart electric guitarist and frontman Angus Young, vocalist Brian Johnson, bassist Cliff Williams, drummer Phil Rudd, and rhythm guitarist Stevie Young – the same setup than the one who played on the last version of the group album, Rock or Bust from 2014

Since then, drummer Phil Rudd had been replaced on the Rock or Bust tour by Chris Slade, after Rudd was convicted of drug possession and other charges in 2015

Later in the outing, Brian Johnson left the group due to hearing issues, with his slot occupied by Axl Rose for the remaining dates

At the end of the tour, Williams announced his retirement from the group after nearly 40 years of service

Meanwhile, guitarist Stevie Young, who is also Angus’ nephew, stepped in for founding member Malcolm Young in 2014 when it was revealed he was suffering from dementia. Young died in 2017

This poster appeared in front of Angus Young’s former high school What is AC / DC for? Triple M Rock

In addition to the new photo, local newspaper readers across the UK were treated to AC / DC ads featuring the question « Are you ready? » above the PWR UP logo – the same one that appeared on a sign outside Angus’ former high school, Ashfield Boys, in Sydney, Australia
