Report: AC/DC Will ‘Absolutely’ Tour Again With Brian Johnson
It was just earlier this week that longtime AC/DC engineer Mike Fraser confirmed that the rock legends had been recording in the studio, capping off a series of intense rumors. Now radio DJ Eddie Trunk has word that Brian Johnson will rejoin AC/DC on tour after forced offstage due issues that threatened his hearing for good.
"I think AC/DC... it's pretty much a done deal that these guys are gonna make a record or have made a record and a record is gonna come out," Trunk began (video below), reaffirming what he said in early February. He then revealed, "I have sources that have told me that they are absolutely going to tour with Brian back again. That's all unconfirmed from their camp, but I had it from some reliable sources."
Continuing, Trunk recapped, "I think it's pretty much a done deal that AC/DC at the very least are going to release some sort of record and it'll be some sort of record and it'll be some sort of tribute to Malcolm [Young] just like Back in Black was a tribute to Bon [Scott]. So I have no doubt about that and I'm pretty confident they're probably going to do shows as well but I think at this point it's pretty much just when they announce it."
Since stepping down from AC/DC "Rock or Bust" tour, Johnson has made fleeting appearances onstage, inspiring hope in fans that he'd be back on the road with AC/DC at some point in the future. The singer has joined Robert Plant and Paul Rodgers onstage, performed "Back in Black" with Muse and jammed with Mick Fleetwood live in Hawaii.
