AC/DC hint at 40th anniversary tour plans

AC/DC will celebrate the 40th anniversary of their formation in November next year and according to David Albert, the boss at music management group Alberts, they’re likely to mark the occasion with a new album or tour.

Albert made the announcement at the ARIA No.1 Chart Awards, which recognised the achievements of performers like Reece Mastin, Karise Eden and Justice Crew late last week, telling the audience that there “will hopefully be some big [AC/DC] news for a new album or new tour next year.”

Back in May, Malcolm Young confirmed that the band is working on a follow-up to 2008′s Black Ice telling Classic Rock that “It’ll be a little while – a year or two anyway… I’ve been doing some jamming on some song ideas but I do that all the time, as do the rest of the band. We are still working. But we had a long rest between Stiff Upper Lip and Black Ice, so I think we need a couple of years to recuperate and work on it a bit more.”

Young revealed that it’s unlikely that the band will ever tour on the scale of the Black Ice tour, which lasted almost two years and sold nearly five million tickets with his son Ross claiming that “It would probably be a bit less, a year or 18 months.”
