Brian Johnson joins Foo Fighters for AC/DC classic at VAX Live concert

Brian Johnson joined the Foo Fighters for a performance of the AC/DC classic, “Back In Black”, during the filming of Global Citizen's "Vax Live: The Concert To Reunite The World" at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California on May 2.

Johnson’s return to the stage follows years of work with the inventor of in-ear monitors, Asius Technologies founder Stephen Ambrose, to find a technical solution that would allow him to resume performing live after he was forced to leave the band’s 2016 world tour in order to prevent possible permanent hearing damage; he rejoined AC/DC in Vancouver in 2018 to record a new album, "Power Up", which was released late last year.

The Foo Fighters issued their tenth studio record, “Medicine At Midnight”, in February.

Hosted by Selena Gomez and broadcast across several US television networks on May 8, the evening featured appearances by Ben Affleck, Chrissy Teigen, David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel and Sean Penn, among others, and performances by Jennifer Lopez, Eddie Vedder, J Balvin, H.E.R., and Saweetie.

According to Global Citizen, “Vax Live” raised $302M+ in funding and secured 26 million COVID-19 vaccine doses to assist people around the world in being protected from the pandemic.

The organization is also sharing an extended video version of the concert event.
