VIDEO: AC/DC play second show at Coachella

AC/DC returned to Coachella on Friday to play the second show of their “Rock Or Bust” world tour on the event’s second weekend.

The band delivered a virtually identical set to their April 10 headlining appearance,with one exception: they swapped out “The Jack” midway through the set and replaced it with their 1975 classic, “High Voltage.”

The group will now head to Europe for a summer run that starts May 5 in Arnhem, Netherlands.

AC/DC will then launch al fall stadium tour of North America August 22 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

Frontman Brian Johnson recently revealed retired guitarist and band founder Malcolm Young inspired the group to the record their latest album and head out on a world tour following his retirement after being diagnosed with dementia.

“It’s just given us that impetus to just do it for him,” said Johnson, “because you know before the dementia really took hold of him he said ‘just get out and make music lads, just for me one more time’. I don’t want to be sentimental about this because, boy oh boy, I’m not a sentimental kind of guy. But that’s what we’re doing.”
