AC/DC Announce The Pretty Reckless As Opener On First Tour Since 2016

AC/DC recently dropped the news on their official X account. They put up a poster of their first European tour in eight years and wrote:

“The Pretty Reckless will be supporting AC/DC on their European tour.”

The Pretty Reckless is gearing up to open for AC/DC on 21 upcoming ‘Power Up’ tour dates. They’re also working on a new album called ‘Other Worlds.’ It’s waiting to come out this year.

The band’s latest trek, the Death by Rock and Roll Tour, was with Shinedown and Halestorm in 2022.

Touring With A New Member

AC/DC is hitting the road also with a new bass player. They shared the news about the tour dates and the new bassist back in February.

Chris Chaney of Jane’s Addiction is stepping in for Cliff Williams, who retired in 2016. The band announced last month:

“We are thrilled to finally announce the ‘POWER UP’ European Tour. Angus, Brian, Stevie, and Matt will be joined by Chris Chaney to carry the torch for Cliff. The tour will see us play shows across Germany, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, England, Slovakia, Belgium, France & Ireland this Summer. We can’t wait to see you all out there.”

The Trek And The Latest Album

The tour will kick off on May 17 at Veltins Arena in Germany and wraps up on August 17 in Dublin, Ireland. AC/DC will play to support their 2020 album ‘Power Up.’

The group recorded the record between 2018 and 2019. But just as they were ready to release it, the COVID-19 pandemic hit and stopped all live music.

AC/DC hit the stage for the first time since Malcolm Young’s death at the Power Trip 2023.
