68-year-old AC/DC rock icon Angus Young rocks out like a teenager.

Trending Now

Age is just a number, and Angus Young, the 68-year-old rock icon from AC/DC, is living proof. Young recently gave a high-octane performance at the Power Trip Festival 2023 held at the Empire Polo Club in California.

His electrifying stage presence defied his age, proving that rock 'n' roll knows no bounds.

A career spanning five decades

Angus Young co-founded AC/DC with his brother Malcolm in 1973. This year, the band celebrates its 50th anniversary, marking half a century of iconic music and unforgettable live performances. Young, who turned 68 in March, shows no signs of slowing down.

His recent performance is a testament to his enduring energy and passion for rock music.

Fans were quick to express their admiration for Young's age-defying performance. One viewer commented, "Never fails to astonish! Age is just a number and these guys prove it. Especially Angus. It can't go forever but these guys, like The Stones, defy and reject the idea of too old to rock and roll, per Jethro Tull. I love it!!!"

Another fan who has been following the band since the 1970s said, "First time I saw AC/DC live was in 1977. It never gets old watching them rock, mad respect to the whole band."

Others noted the evolution of Young's appearance, with one fan stating, "Instead of a schoolboy, he looks like a college professor. Nothing but respect for him. Brilliant guitarist and songwriter. What a career and legacy."

Yet another admirer succinctly put it, "Angus Young is living his name to the fullest!"
