Australian radio has created a buzz with the announcement that AC/DC is close to announcing a world stadium tour and in the final stages of completing a new album.
This morning (Monday, January 20), Australian radio personality Eddie McGuire discussed the possibility on his Triple M Melbourne breakfast show: “There will be a new album released by AC/DC February/March this year, and a tour of Australia October/November 2020.”
McGuire spoke about the issues concerning lead vocalist Brian Johnson as well as the involvement of other members: “After a lot of technical research, they have been able to get a hearing aid for Brian. Even Phil Rudd [drums] might be back in the group either playing percussion or drums with Angus [Young, guitar] so that they’ve got three of back there.”
Almost two years ago, Johnson and Rudd, along with Angus Young and fellow guitarist Stevie Young, were photographed outside Vancouver’s Warehouse Studios. The assumption was that they were in the midst of recording new music. Last February, another photo suggested that bassist Cliff Williams has also returned to AC/DC and will appear on the rumored comeback album.
