AC/DC’s Brian Johnson has said that it is likely that the rock legends will be touring this year.
The singer posted a message on his Brian Johnson Racing website saying that his “day job” in AC/DC was likely to keep him from producing any more episodes of his TV show, Cars That Rock, in the immediate future.
Johnson wrote: “We hope to bring you more shows in the near future but, of course, there is the slight distraction of my day job with AC/DC – and it looks very likely that we will be on the road again before the end of the year. So stand by for more music – and more Cars That Rock. Thanks – Brian”.
Following rumours of the band’s imminent retirement, it was reported in April that founding group member Malcolm Young would step down from the band owing to ill health.
“After 40 years of life dedicated to AC/DC, guitarist and founding member Malcolm Young is taking a break from the band due to ill health,” a statement read. “Malcolm would like to thank the group’s diehard legions of fans worldwide for their never-ending love and support. In light of this news, AC/DC asks that Malcolm and his family’s privacy be respected during this time. The band will continue to make music.”
AC/DC’s last studio album was 2008’s Black Ice.
