AC/DC’s 2024 Munich stadium show leaked by city’s mayor

AC/DC’s 2024 stadium show was leaked by Munich’s mayor.

Dieter Reiter let slip that the ‘Highway To Hell’ rockers are playing at the Olympic Stadium on June 12.

He later said at a council meeting, as quoted by Planet Rock: “I didn’t know it was supposed to be a secret.”

The Brian Johnson-fronted band has yet to comment on the Mayor’s leak or announce a stadium show/tour.

In September, the group reignited rumours they could be planning a world tour.

The band has not toured since 2016 but returned with old and new members when they headlined the Power Trip festival in California in October.

They posted a clip of rehearsals showing them performing their classic track ‘If You Want Blood (You’ve Got It)’, alongside information on the latest line-up.

Bassist Cliff Williams, 73, is back in the fold alongside Angus Young, 68, and 76-year-old Brian – but drummer Phil Rudd, 69, sat it out.

The band has recruited 55-year-old drummer Matt Laug in his place, who has played with artists including Alanis Morissette, Alice Cooper and Slash.

Promoters have been trying to get AC/DC to tour for years and the band are said to be willing to do more shows in 2024 as singer Brian’s hearing has improved.

A source told the Daily Star’s Wired column: “For a while it looked like an AC/DC would never play live again. Technology has helped Brian get back to doing what he loves best.

“More dates are being looked at for next year, some big shows.”

Brain was forced to quit the group’s tour in 2016 or face permanent hearing loss – with Axl Rose completing the rest of the band’s run.

But Brain worked with audio expert Stephen Ambrose on a new type of earbud that allows the rocker to perform without causing further damage to his eardrums.

He used them while making AC/DC’s 2020 record ‘Power Up!’ and he hailed the innovation as a “revelation” for his life and performance.
