According to a published reported by Classic Rock Magazine, AC/DC is on the verge of announcing their comeback able and a world tour! Ghost Cult reported last year that the band convened in Vancouver British Columbia where the current band of Brian Johnson, Angus Young, Stevie Williams, Phil Rudd, and Cliff Williams were all photographed at the studio where they have made several albums. Cliff retired from touring at the end of 2016, but perhaps he could be convinced to tour again. Co-founding guitarist Malcolm Young died in 2017. Speaking recently on Melbourne’s Triple M Hot Breakfast show, Australian broadcaster Eddie McGuire claimed that AC/DC’s new album would be out sometime in the next couple of months, with live shows to follow later in the year. Nothing has been confirmed yet by the band but this is very encouraging! The band also potentially an EP worth of material with Axl Rose of Guns N Roses, which we also hope sees the light of day! Their classic album Back In Black also turns 40 in 2020.
“There has been speculation, but my mail is there will be a new album released by AC/DC in February or March this year, but also that AC/DC will be touring Australia in October or November 2020.
“And after a lot of work and a lot of technical research, they have been able to get a hearing aid for Brian Johnson, who will be out front. And even drummer Phil Rudd might be back in the group either playing percussion or drums with guitarist Angus Young, so that they’ve got three of, well, not the originals, but three of the old-timers, if you like, back there.
“They’ve had a few changes over the journey, but Angus out front, Brian Johnson lead singing, and maybe Phil Rudd, after his issues that he’s had in recent times.”
