According to Topeka, Kansas rock radio station V100, AC/DC will announce the details of the bands 2019-2020 world tour on Wednesday, July 17.
At this time, there has yet to be an official announcement or confirmation from an official source about the timeline of a possible tour, with the station adding on its web site:
“Obviously, we’re talking about the music biz here, [so] things could change. But, right now that’s what we’ve been told.”
Quoting from a “reliable source” that is “close with the AC/DC camp,” V100 goes on to say that AC/DC‘s upcoming tour will include longtime singer Brian Johnson, who was forced to leave the band mid-tour in 2016 due to a dangerous level of hearing loss.
Here’s the statement:
“It’s been rumored for months now that he’s been working with the band and we’ve been told those rumors are true,” the station writes.
“Brian has been working special in-ears made for his performances so that he can continue to perform without causing any more damage to his hearing than he already has.”
Rumors of a new AC/DC record have been circulating for several months, ever since Johnson and drummer Phil Rudd, along with guitarists Angus Young and Stevie Young, were photographed outside Vancouver’s Warehouse Studios.
Based on the pictures, the assumption at the time was that AC/DC was in the midst of making — or at least planning — another album, with Rudd and Johnson both back in the lineup. Online reports have also indicated Angus Young will dedicate the new AC/DC album to his late brother.
