AC/DC confirm new tour being planned
AC/DC have confirmed, via Angus Young, that a new tour is being planned - to coincide with the band's 40th anniversary in 2013. In an interview with the UK's Sun Newspaper, Young was asked about the new 'AC/DC - Live at River Plate' DVD which brings AC/DC to London for tonight's world premiere at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo.
In the interview, Young said that "We have such diehard fans, old and new. We've survived many changing fashions of music – we've outlived the lot of them." he then went on to say "Now we're thinking, 'How can we ever better the 'Black Ice' world tour?' But we will,".
No dates or other information is available at this time, however, both Brian Johnson and Cliff Williams have both previously hinted at there being a new tour. There are no details about a new album, however, AC/DC tours generally support the issue of a new album release.

The guitarist, known for his schoolboy outfit, also rubbished rumours the band, whose Black Ice tour was the second highest grossing tour in history, are considering retiring.
Speaking to Sky News Johnson denied he was thinking of hanging up his legendary flat cap and quitting.
"No, never. Not as long as I can still walk and sing. I should think we'll be back absolutely.
"We'll definitely be back," added Angus, who confirmed they are working on a new album but admitted he had no idea how they could top the Black Ice tour, which sold 5.1m tickets and grossed an estimated $477m.
"We'll just keep at it and next time we'll try to do it bigger and better."
