On May 17, 2024, AC/DC delivered an electrifying performance at the Veltins-Arena in Gelsenkirchen as part of their “Power Up” tour. The band opened their set with “If You Want Blood (You’ve Got It)” and continued to rock the stage with classics like “Back in Black,” “Thunderstruck,” and “Hells Bells.” The crowd, comprising around 60,000 fans, was treated to a robust setlist of 24 songs, concluding with powerful encores “T.N.T.” and “For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)”.

Despite the rainy weather forecast, the arena’s retractable roof ensured the audience stayed dry, maintaining the high energy of the show. Fans praised the band’s performance, particularly Brian Johnson’s vocals, expressing amazement that at 76 years old, he still had the vocal strength and stage presence to lead the band through such an intense performance.

This concert marked the beginning of AC/DC’s first European tour in several years, following the release of their album “Power Up,” which was recorded as a tribute to Malcolm Young, the band’s late rhythm guitarist. The tour features a mix of classic hits and newer tracks, showcasing the band’s enduring appeal and commitment to delivering high-energy rock performances.

The logistics of attending the concert were well-managed, with recommendations for fans to use public transportation to avoid the limited parking spaces. Extra trains were scheduled to ensure smooth travel to and from the venue, making it convenient for the large crowd.

The Gelsenkirchen concert was just the start of a series of shows across Germany and Europe, with additional performances planned in cities like Munich and Dresden. Fans who couldn’t attend the sold-out opening night in Gelsenkirchen still had opportunities to catch the band live at other venues throughout the tour.

Overall, AC/DC’s performance in Gelsenkirchen was a memorable kickoff to their “Power Up” tour, reaffirming their status as rock legends and delighting fans with a mix of nostalgia and new energy.
