The band will also be heading out on a 40th anniversary tour, which, says Brian Johnson, will comprise 40 special gigs. Speaking to Florida radio station Gater 98.7 – via Rolling Stone – Johnson said the band would be heading to a Vancouver studio in May to record their 16th studio album. Of a proposed anniversary tour, he added:

“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. 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.”

Bruce Springsteen opened his set at the Perth Arena in Australia on February 6 with a cover of AC/DC’s 1979 hit “Highway To Hell”. Click here to watch it.
