AC/DC To Announce Tour Dates Next Week!
According to Topeka, Kansas rock radio station V100, AC/DC will announce the details of its 2019-2020 world tour next Wednesday on July 17th.
The stations web site stated: “Obviously, we’re talking about the music biz here, [so] things could change. But, right now that’s what we’ve been told.”
Citing a “reliable source” that is “close with the AC/DC camp,” V100 claims 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 hearing loss. “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 Johnsonand 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.
Slash Reveals That a New Guns N’ Roses Pinball Machine is In Fact Coming Out
Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash confirms that a new pinball machine, which has been heavily rumored is in fact true. During an interview with San Francisco weekly the guitarist the article stated the following:
Overall, chatting with Slash is a surprisingly low-key affair.
For a man who once famously hid a mountain lion cub in his room at the Four Seasons, he’s remarkably reflective and thoughtful in conversation. Asked if he’s seen Leaving Neverland — a recent HBO documentary that focuses on two men who allege that Michael Jackson sexually abused them as children — the pop singer’s one-time collaborator concedes that he has not but sounds genuine when he adds that he plans to soon.
His tone gets excited when talking about a forthcoming GNR pinball machine (“nothing has ever come out like it”) but sits at even keel when discussing the circumstances that led him to get sober in 2006.
“I had so many near-misses and that just didn’t seem to faze me,” he says. “It came to a head for me after a pretty tumultuous 2005 with Velvet Revolver. I was just falling down that black abyss again and I was like, ‘I can’t get high anymore. This just doesn’t work.’ So I put myself in a facility for a month and got my head together. I haven’t done it since. I haven’t had the urge to do it since.”
Luckily for fans, it’s an urge to make music that’s survived alongside the man himself.
“As you know,” he adds, “I didn’t go anywhere — and it doesn’t look like I’m going to.”
All we know so far is that it is scheduled to possibly come out in December and it is still in the early stages
