AC/DC Plans 40th Anniversary Shows, Recording


AC/DC plans to hit the studio in May as the band celebrates its 40th anniversary, and live dates may follow.

Vocalist Brian Johnson made a surprise phone call to Andy Preston of 98.7 The Gater in West Palm Beach, Florida on Friday. When Preston asked Johnson if the band had any plans for 2014, the singer said “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.”

Johnson added that because it was the band’s 40th anniversary they were considering playing 40 shows to thank fans for their loyalty. “I mean, honestly, our fans are just the best in the world, and we appreciate every one of them,” Johnson said, “so, like I said, we'll have to go out, even though we're getting a bit long in the tooth.”

Your radio station plays way TOO much ACDC. How many times do we have to listen to "Highway to Hell"? Play some b sides....probably not as popular but when did this station ever play top 40?
