AC/DC Rocks Estadio La Cartuja with Electrifying Performance

AC/DC rolled back the years with a thrilling performance at the Estadio La Cartuja. The hard-rock legends, widely regarded as Australia’s finest musical export, have been dominating global stages and ear drums for over half a century.

Despite their advancing years—76-year-old English singer Brian Johnson and iconic 69-year-old guitarist Angus Young—they continue to defy expectations and deliver high-energy performances that captivate audiences.

The concert was a testament to their enduring appeal and remarkable stamina. Johnson’s powerful vocals and Young’s electrifying guitar riffs brought the crowd to its feet, proving that the band’s ability to entertain remains as strong as ever.

Fans were treated to a setlist filled with classic hits, showcasing the band's impressive catalog and their ability to connect with audiences of all ages. The energy in the stadium was palpable, as AC/DC delivered a show that was both a nostalgic trip and a powerful rock experience.

AC/DC's performance at Estadio La Cartuja reinforced their status as one of the greatest rock bands of all time, demonstrating that age is no barrier to rocking the stage and thrilling fans worldwide.

They wasted little time in getting down to business, opening up with ‘If You Want Blood (You’ve Got It)’ and ‘Back In Black’ on what was the fourth date of this European trek as they belatedly promote their ‘Power Up’ album of 2020, their 17th studio outing.

‘Thunderstruck’, which saw Angus discard his red schoolboy blazer, followed by the first sight of his trademark duckwalk, received an ecstatic response from the crowd at a point where the foundations of the stadium genuinely seemed to be shaking.

Indeed, credit must go to the (mostly) Spanish audience, who fully contributed to the excitement and emotion of the event by roaring their heroes on with a frenzied fervour, as the group proved they can still generate awesome power.

Another member of the Young family is in the band

With the band now including Stevie Young (nephew of Angus and former rhythm guitarist Malcolm, who sadly passed away in 2017), as well as new recruits Chris Chaney (bass) and Matt Laug (drums), things shifted up a gear with mid-’70s classics ‘Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap’ and ‘High Voltage’.

The many highlights, of a set that was slightly less reliant on pyrotechnics and inflatables, included ‘Highway To Hell’ and ‘Whole Lotta Rosie’.

Meanwhile, the lengthy ‘Let There Be Rock’ – which allowed Angus to hog the limelight on the circular platform at the end of the extended stage – inevitably rocked and ‘Shoot To Thrill’ did indeed thrill.
