Will Rock Or Bust be AC/DC’s final tour?

AC/DC’s Brian Johnson has heard the rumblings that the band’s current Rock Or Bust world tour will be their last, but the singer isn’t ready to confirm their retirement plans just yet.

“Y’know, retirement is like anything,” Johnson tells Morning Sun Music. “A good footballer, a good ice hockey player, they don’t want to retire, but unfortunately sometimes there’s a time when you have to call it quits. So it’s an ongoing thing with us; we never say no, and we never say never.

“The thing about the boys in AC/DC, you’ve got to remember, is we’re constantly surprised and amazed at how we keep the success going. We don’t know what we’re doing — I mean, we literally don’t know what we’re doing except what we’re doing is we just play 100 percent every night and give it everything we’ve got. If that’s the secret of success, we’ll pass it on.”

“But we never expect the crowds,” adds Johnson. “We never take anything for granted. How can you? Times change. You’ve just got to keep doing what you’re doing, basically, and just hope they come back for more.”

AC/DC's current North American dates just landed on Billboard’s Hot Tours chart as one of the highest grossing active live shows.

AC/DC appear at No. 3 on the "Hot Tours" list of top-grossing tours behind Nicki Minaj and Shania Twain with $4 million in ticket sales from an outdoor Canadian performance on August 28 at the Plaines d'Abraham in Quebec City.

The band will play shows in Detroit, MI and Toronto, ON this week before the fall dates wrap up at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on September 28.
