AC/DC Set To 'Tour And Release New Album With Brian Johnson'
Eddie McGuire says ‘we’ll be banging our heads just like the old days’ as Aussie rock royalty AC/DC are expected to tour in 2020.
The Triple M breakfast show host made the announcement on Monday morning.
“The greatest rock band in the history of Australian music will be reforming and playing in Australia,” McGuire said, adding the tour would likely be in October-November 2020.
He claimed Brian Johnson, 72, would be resuming his position as vocalist for a world tour.
“ ... 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 … October/November 2020,” McGuire said.
“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 Phil Rudd might be back in the group either playing percussion or drums … so they have three of the old-timers back together.”
“We will all be banging our heads just like the old days.”
AC/DC last toured Australia in 2015-2016 for the Rock or Bust world tour.
Brian Johnson’s hearing problems forced him to leave the band mid-tour in 2016.
