AC/DC to Head into Studio and Play 40 Gigs this Year to Mark Anniversary

AC/DC singer Brian Johnson has confirmed what fans have been waiting to hear for a while, the band will head into the studio in the Spring!

The legendary front man also announced that the band will be looking to celebrate their 40th anniversary by possibly completing a mammoth FORTY gig tour.

“We’ve been denying anything because we weren’t sure,” he tells 98.7 The Gater. “One of our boys was pretty ill, so we didn’t like to say anything. We’re pretty private about things like this; he’s a very proud man. But I think we’ll be going in the studio in May in Vancouver – which means we should be getting ready.”

When asked about the possibility of a tour, he adds: “It’s been 40 years of the band’s existence, so I think we’re going to try to go 40 gigs to thank the fans for their undying loyalty. We’re happy to go out even though we’re getting a bit long in the tooth – I’m really looking forward to it.”

It has been four years since AC/DC last went out on a proper tour, and has been six years since the release of Black Ice.
