According to frontman Brian Johnson, the tour will comprise 40 special gigs. And in an interview with Florida radio station Gater 98.7, Johnson says the band will start recording their 16th studio album in Vancouver this May.
“Its 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,” he says of the tour. “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. You know what? It’s been four years, and I’m really looking forward to it.”
Johnson is also slated to host the new UK series Cars that Rock, which will air this spring on Quest, Freeview Channel 38. Stay tuned for more updates on their official website.
