Rock band AC/DC have confirmed that a tour is in the works for 2014
The news was revealed by guitarist Angus Young that a tour is being planned for this year with frontman Brian Johnson, originally from Dunston, Gateshead.
It is set to be a celebration of AC/DC’s 40th anniversary.
In the interview, Young goes on to talk about the band’s diehard fans and the difficulty of being able to top the Black Ice Tour, which grossed $477m.
The latest AC/DC album released was AC/DC Live at River Plate, and Young admitted they are working on a new album, but has no idea when it will be released.
The band re-entered the top 40 singles charts in the run-up to Christmas after becoming the subjects of the latest Facebook campaign to snatch the Christmas No 1 away from other candidates, including the X Factor winner.
The campaign’s aim was to see the band hit the top spot with their 1979 single Highway To Hell – in recognition of their 40th anniversary as a band and the fact they have never had a top 10 hit in the UK charts, never mind a number one.
However, the campaign failed to get the band to the top spot for Christmas number one.
The band’s most successful single in this country was Heatseeker, which fell just short of the top 10 with a number 12 placing in 1988.
The band was formed in November 1973 by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, who have remained constant members throughout AC/DC’s history.
