This page contains a list of all known performances of Back in Black.
All of the 2010 performances were joined by the singer of the band Jet, Nic Cester. 2017's performance was joined by AC/DC's Brian Johnson.
Analysis and Explanation
Originally performed by AC/DC, Back in Black was performed five times during the band's shows at the Big Day Out festivals in 2010, each time joined by Nic Cester on vocals. The song was done as a tribute to AC/DC themselves due to the gigs taking place in Australia. Nic Cester's band Jet have a similar style to AC/DC, likely why he was chosen to sing this cover. It was not performed after the Big Day Out festivals with the exception of one performance at the San Siro in June 2010 where the band happened to be in Italy at the same time as Cester.
The song appeared on the setlist for Glastonbury Festival 2016, and the band themselves hinted beforehand that they may bring a special guest in during the show, most likely to sing the song, but for unknown reasons it wasn't played and the song was crossed off the setlist. It was instead performed in 2017 at the Reading Festival with former AC/DC singer Brian Johnson singing. The performance was uploaded officially on YouTube by the band after Malcolm Young's death.
