Jeez, do you people realize there's only 2 original Stones left in the line up. For crying out loud it's 50-60 years on, what do you expect?

Yes, but Jagger can still sing. That is rather importent.

Now that's a thought...have Mick stand in for Brian!

Indeed, though halfway through Back In Black I think we'd have a problem.

Brian turns 77 in October.
OK, yes, I want Jagger singing Back In Black, Thunderstruck and For Those About To Rock, I think we're in for a good laugh.
And without the Stones system with 2 backing singers doubling his voice.

I think the rumoured shows in Dresden and Hannover will be announced If they're selling good. All other dates from the rumour list are matching

Probably - but it could be difficult with the new lineup.

Easy pass! I'm not travelling to see these guys. The 2008 and 2009 Black Ice shows will remain the only times I saw them live, glad I did.

For those going, I salute you for sure.

Hoping for North American dates in the fall. I'll definitely go if/when they announce a BC Place show. Seen them in 83/88/91/91/91/96/03/08/15 in Vancouver. I'm pretty sure this will be their last tour and at this point, I'm hoping Brian's voice can hold out. Wonder if they would consider playing in a lower key?

I guess some 40% of the concert goers won't realize that the line-up has changed until the band comes on stage (another 40% won't have realized it by the time the band was left the stage)

I'm stunned there is no Scotland date. My only guess is that if all goes well with this tour (and North America, Australia etc) then they may be back for Scotland and Scandinavia in 2025.

Brian's voice is absolutely shot. I'm in two minds about seeing them as I don't want my memory of them to be tarnished by his failed voice.

I know but the people from Paris will probably still be away. The city usually is empty in that period.

There are many bands with just a couple original members still - The Stones, The Who, AC/DC previously, hell even Metallica only has two original members!!! The difference is some of these bands have been carrying on with the same replacements for decades now. So long so that it’s become almost acceptable. This new incarnation of AC/DC is above and beyond that. It’s not much different from Skynyrd these days. Still a good show but the most expensive tribute band you’ll ever see.

Oh you're way off in comparing AC/DC to Skynryrd.

Metallica only having 2 is a stretch. I mean t9 be fair Kirk has played on every studio album. Not calling Kirk an original is like not counting Bill and Charlie original members. That said, it all comes down to what you are willing to pay for. AC/DC is a pass for me without Phil or Cliff. But I don't think they will have any problems selling out stadiums world wide without them. I thought The Who without John Entwhistle was a major drop off in 2002 compared to seeing them with John in 2000. But again. It all comes down to what people are willing to pay to see.

The Cult haven't had any steady core member since 2006 with John Tempesta on drums - the longest tenure of any hired hand, like Mike Dimkich, or Matt Sorum, since 1999. Jamie Stewart, the original bass player, quit in 1990. The original drummer got fired in 1985 because of his drug issues and he died from drugs in 1992.

They're still killing it. Original members do not dictate quality, listeners do. Which is hilarious since The Rolling Stones have drawn bigger and bigger crowds with Ronnie... and that started just under 49 years ago.

AC/DC will rock just fine without Phil or Cliff. Matt Laug is closer to Phil's groove than any other drummer they've ever had.

There are many "classic rock" bands that are still touring with only one or two original members. The vast majority of the crowd wouldn't know the difference. Foreigner is doing their farewell tour and there's no original band members! I saw the Black Crowes a couple years ago and apart from the Robinsons, I have no idea if any of the others were original members. Same as the Killers, I know Brandon Flowers and recognize the drummer but I believe the others weren't originals.

They'll sell fine, but good god, Brian just can't do it anymore. I'm very sad to say. If you can look past it, yeah, Angus still absolutely crushes it, but I won't lie and pretend Brian sounds good.

But not a good sign giving confidence he can do a whole tour on a good level.

Thats what I thought when I first heard them with the classic BIB album, it all sounded monotonous and similar. Rather dreary. But the devil is in the details and after repeated exposures, it dawned to me how great they are. Turn it up and enjoy!

That was honestly better than I was expecting. Not a slam dunk for Brian, but not Bon Jovi levels bad by any means. Could see him improving with the tour and using his voice more regularly.

McCartney Sound pretty bad in Seattle for the Got Back tour and sounded significantly better in videos from the Australia tour a year later. Didn't sound like he did 20 years ago, but definitely better.

Its possible I'm being too harsh on Brian, but I do think thats giving him way too much leeway. It wasn't the desert, this was the guy they dumped in 2016, allegedly because of his hearing but there are rumors of vocal troubles then. His first show back and he really doesn't sound good. There's videos of Highway To Hell that is the worst Highway To Hell I've ever heard. I'm not happy about it, its not how I want AC/DC to sound when usually they are note perfect. I hope, HOPE, he's great for a tour, but I was skeptical of his return and Desert Trip didn't do anything to quell those. I think his voice is shot but they just still want to get out there. And they need Brian if they're now not gonna have Phil or Cliff. Its a no win situation, but hopefully they prove me wrong. Nothing at the moment in my mind to suggest they will. Brian's old, I don't blame him at all and thats hard stuff to sing.
