Watch AC/DC Play ‘Given the Dog a Bone’ for the First Time Since 1980
For this new run of dates on their Rock or Bust tour, AC/DC have made a couple of surprising changes to the setlist. Out went tour standards "Play Ball" and "Baptism by Fire," which have been replaced by "Got Some Rock & Roll Thunder" and "Given the Dog a Bone," the latter of which hasn't been played in 35 years. "Bone" is embedded above, while "Thunder" can be viewed below.
According to Setlist's tour statistics page, both songs made their debut at this leg's first show at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Wash., on Feb. 2, and have been played at the other three concerts to date. Noise11 says that "Bone," which was released on Back in Black, had only been performed on seven prior occasions, with the last coming on Oct. 27, 1980 in Sheffield, England. "Thunder" is a world premiere, having appeared on Rock or Bust.
AC/DC will remain on the road through April 4 at New York's Madison Square Garden. After a month off, they will tour Europe, with dates running from May 7 through June 12. Last year, they played to 2.31 million fans, more than any other act in the world. You can get complete information on this year's tour at their website.
The group's latest entry into the alcohol industry is a combination of bourbon and cola. They're asking fans to take pictures of themselves drinking the beverage and post it to social media using the hashtag "ShowUsUrCans." A portion of the proceeds will go to their own Let There Be Rock fund, which will help up-and-coming Australian bands.
