AC/DC guitarist Angus Young revealed at the band’s “Live At River Plate” DVD premiere last Friday night (May 6) at the Hammersmith Apollo in London, England that there are plans for the group to release a new studio album “within the next couple of years. He said, “Well, at some point we’ll be touring again once we get a new album out, which will hopefully be within the next couple of years.”
When asked about whether AC/DC could top its “Black Ice” world tour — which saw the band play to more than five million fans and visit 108 cities in 20 months — he replied, “Yeah, definitely.” Vocalist Brian Johnson added, “We’ll try to make the next tour even better, we’ll bloody try.”
AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was unable to attend last night’s event because “his house [in New Zealand] got hit by a storm,” according to Johnson.
“Live At River Plate”, a definitive live concert DVD documenting AC/DC’s massive “Black Ice” world tour, will finally be available for purchase tomorrow (Tuesday, May 10).
