AC/DC look forward to Rock Or Bust world tour

AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson and guitarist Angus Young say they’re looking forward to hitting the road next year for a world tour in support of their new album, “Rock Or Bust.”

"I think more than ever, this tour I'm looking forward to it a bit more than, I think, any other,” Johnson tells BBC Radio 2's The Chris Evans Breakfast Show. “I don't know if it's 'cause of my age and just enjoying things that I maybe took for granted once, that you just know it's a special time. It's been 40 years, and just to get out there again, and see if you can do it. You've gotta prove it to yourself that you can do it."

"Yeah, I do. I enjoy it,” adds Young. “Probably, for myself, 'cause I was very young when I started. I'm just used to it. It's the life I know."

The band recently revealed the first series of dates for the trek, with a European run set to launch May 5 in Arnhem, Netherlands; a mix of arena and stadium shows are scheduled into late July with more dates expected to be announced soon.

The concerts will feature new addition Stevie Young, nephew of Angus and retired AC/DC founder Malcolm Young.

The status of drummer Phil Rudd for the tour remains in question following his recent arrest by New Zealand police on drug possession and threatening to kill charges.
