AC/DC FRONTMAN BRIAN JOHNSON SAYS THAT THE BAND WILL BE ENTERING A CANADIAN STUDIO IN MAY
AC/DC will reportedly be entering a studio in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in May, reports blabbermouth.net.
The news was revealed on Friday, February 14th by the band’s lead singer, Brian Johnson, during a surprise phone call he gave to Andy Preston of the 98.7 The Gater radio station in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Asked if AC/DC is planning to do anything this year, Johnson told Preston: “Well, you’ll be the first one to know, really, because we’ve been denying anything, ’cause we weren’t sure. One of our boys was pretty ill, so we didn’t like to say anything, and we’re very private about things like this, so we didn’t wanna say anything. And he’s a very proud man. But I think we’ll be going into the studio in May in Vancouver. Which means, we should be getting ready. It’s been 40 years of the band’s existence, so I think we’re gonna try to do 40 gigs, 40 shows, to thank the fans for their undying loyalty. I mean, honestly, our fans are just the best in the world, and we appreciate every one of them. So, like I said, we’ll have to go out, even though we’re getting a bit long in the tooth. [laughs]”
He added: “You know what?! It’s been four years [since we last went out on the road], and I’m really looking forward to it.”
