AC/DC Celebrates 50 Years with Limited Edition Gold Vinyl Releases and European Tour

Fifty Years of Rock 'n' Roll Reign

Legendary rock band AC/DC is gearing up for an epic celebration of their five-decade-long journey in the music industry. As they prepare to mark their 50th anniversary, the band has announced an electrifying lineup of events, including the release of their entire album catalogue on limited edition gold vinyl.

Formed in 1973, AC/DC burst onto the scene with their iconic debut gig at the Chequers Nightclub in Sydney, Australia, on December 31 of that year. Now, fifty years later, they continue to reign supreme in the world of rock and roll.

To commemorate this milestone, AC/DC is unleashing a wave of nostalgia with their gold vinyl re-releases, set to hit shelves on March 15. Fans can expect to find classics like ‘Back In Black‘, ‘Highway To Hell’, ‘The Razors Edge‘, and more, each packaged with a special 12”x12” print featuring new AC/DC 50 artwork.

But that’s not all – the celebration doesn’t stop with vinyl. AC/DC is also embarking on a monumental European tour, their first in eight years. The ‘Power Up’ tour, named after their 2020 album, will see the band rock stadiums across 10 countries, including Spain, Austria, and Switzerland.

The excitement doesn’t end there. AC/DC aficionados can dive into a treasure trove of commemorative merchandise, from t-shirts and hoodies to mugs and beer coolers. And for those looking to bring a piece of AC/DC history into their homes, there’s even a “50 years of logo” bar runner up for grabs.

With the band’s return to full-time action and frontman Brian Johnson back in the spotlight after overcoming hearing problems, the AC/DC faithful have even more reason to rejoice. So mark your calendars, secure your vinyl pre-orders, and get ready to rock out with AC/DC like never before as they celebrate half a century of music mastery.
