After months of rumors, hints, and speculation, AC/DC reunited in the flesh for the “Shot In The Dark” music video. Released earlier this month, “Shot In The Dark” is the lead single off Power Up, the band’s first new album since 2014 which is due out on November 13th.
The video finds a full reunion of the Back In Black era lineup, featuring Brian Johnson, Angus Young, Phil Rudd, and Cliff Williams. Also along for the ride are Angus and the late Malcom Young‘s nephew, Stevie Young, who mans rhythm guitar and backing vocals.
While the song has been out for almost three weeks, the music video breathes new light into the single as the classic rock titans are seen strutting their stuff once again. With the neon AC/DC sign seen on the cover of Power Up confidently displayed in the background, the Australian-bred rockers hit the lights and take the stage at a bare bones stage setup cloaked in black.
Immediately kicking off with a textbook Angus riff, the guitarist is back to his old tricks in the schoolboy uniform and his trademark dance across the stage. The band is in fine form as the stadium rock giants get right back to doing what they do best with an all-out live performance. Here’s hoping that we will be able to see AC/DC do its thing at a real concert, though the band has stated plans to hold off on any tour announcement until it becomes clear when the live music industry will return to semi-normalcy. For now, the video for “Shot In The Dark” will have to do.
