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

Back in Black was performed five times during the Big Day Out festival in 2010, each time joined by Jet singer Nic Cester. The song was done as a tribute to famous Australian band AC/DC. Nic Cester himself is also Australian, likely why he was chosen to sing this cover. It was not performed after the Big Day Out festival with the exception of one performance in June 2010 where the band happened to be in Italy as well as Cester for San Siro 2010. While it was dropped after these gigs, the bridge riff continues to make appearances to this date, usually as an outro to Hysteria.

The song was supposed to return at the Glastonbury 2016 gig, and the band had previously hinted of a special guest joining them at some point in the gig in an interview shown before the gig was televised (presumably to sing the song) - but for unknown reasons it was not played. It was instead performed in 2017 at the Reading Festival with AC/DC's Brian Johnson. The performance was uploaded officially on YouTube by the band after Malcolm Young's death.
