AC/DC Hosts Pop-Up to Celebrate Power Trip Show

When it comes to iconic rock bands, AC/DC is a name that needs no introduction. Known for their electrifying performances and timeless hits, this legendary group has consistently pushed the boundaries of rock ‘n’ roll. Known for their power-packed stadium performances and iconic rock anthems, AC/DC is no stranger to large venues and grand stages. 

However, this time around, they’re opting for an intimate setting that harks back to the gritty, underground bars where rock ‘n’ roll was born. The reason behind this unexpected move? A celebration like no other- the upcoming Power Trip show.
