AC/DC Planning Major World Tour
Paul Cashmere of Australia's Undercover News has just revealed that AC/DC will be touring in support of their new album due out later this year.
According to Paul,"Plans for a major world tour are underway to coincide with the release of the album and the tour will been announced shortly."
This is, of course, excellent news for AC/DC fans everywhere as many have been fretting that they would never get to see Angus & Co. live in concert ever again.
I suspect AC/DC will tour their usual haunts including Europe, North America and Australia, but what about all the fans who want to see them again in New Zealand, South America, Japan, and even in South Africa? Not only that, but AC/DC has a growing audience in India and who can forget AC/DC's legendary appearance at Moscow's Tushino International Airport back in 1991 in front of an estimated million fans?
And while they're at it, why shouldn't AC/DC visit China as well? After all, if the Rolling Stones can do it, why shouldn't the world's greatest rock band play there too?
Personally, I'd rather see AC/DC avoid China while they're cracking down on Tibet, but AC/DC has never been a band to let politics stand in their way of where they want to play.
Anyway, the good news is that a tour will happen barring any unforeseen circumstances. Hopefully, it won't be AC/DC's last go round either as that rumor has reared its ugly head recently thanks to Eddie Trunk.
