It came to light on Monday when radio host Eddie McGuire accidentally leaked the announcement on Triple M radio in Melbourne, Australia revealing
‘The greatest rock band in the history of Australian music will be reforming and playing in Australia in October/November this year!’
My mail is, 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 [in] October/November 2020.
‘And 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.’
McGuire also claimed that lead guitarist Angus Young, 64, would join the tour, as well as drummer Phil Rudd, 65, who left the group in 2014 amid legal troubles.
‘I’m hearing the album will be out February [or] March, and we’ll all be banging our heads like the old days,’ he added.
‘That was the darkest day of my professional life,’
There has been no official announcement from AC/DC yet regarding a new album or tour, however a year or so ago the band was photographed in Vancouver at a recording studio leading some to believe there is an album coming. I am crossing my fingers!
