Gallery: AC/DC at Coachella

Last night AC/DC played their first full show in six years, and their first since Stevie Young and Chris Slade filled the gaps left by Malcolm Young’s retirement and Phil Rudd’s continued absence.

Headlining the opening night of this year’s Coachella Festival in California, the band’s set included live premieres for two songs — Play Ball and Baptism By Fire — plus the return of two old favourites: Have A Drink On Me was played for the first time since 1985’s Fly On The Wall tour, while Sin City appeared for the first time since the Stiff Upper Lip tour in 2001.
