AC/DC Tour [May. 17th, 2007|07:55 pm]



Australia's Herald Sun daily newspaper published the following item in its May 6 edition (page 2 of the Sunday entertainment liftout):

"AC/DC will tour next year — with plans to take the show to the Red Centre [region of Australia]. Concert industry sources at Coachella said AC/DC leader Angus Young wants to do major centres and has asked promoters to put Alice Springs [town in the Northern Territory of Australia] in the tour schedule. Asked about the significance of Alice Springs, Young says it's a gesture of giving back and he wants to take a major tour off the main road. The tour is likely to happen early next year."

AC/DC fan site AC/DC Highway to Hell reported recently the rumor that AC/DC has completed editing video footage for a brand new double DVD set, to be released in September. The package will supposedly contain one Bon Scott DVD and one Brian Johnson DVD of AC/DC album for a January 2008 release, with a world tour to follow. performing in concert, although this has not yet been officially confirmed. The band is also rumored to be putting the finishing touches on a new

Back in December 2006, Albert Music boss Fifa Riccobono shot down reports that AC/DC had a new record titled "Strap It On" coming in 2007.

"I ran that past Mal (Young) some time ago and he said it was the first he'd heard of it, so I guess the answer no," she told Undercover News. "Also, there definitely is no release date scheduled as the album hasn't been recorded yet."

AC/DC leaders Malcolm and Angus Young have been writing material for a few years. In early 2005, singer Brian Johnson told Launch there was a lot of stuff to work with. "I think, and I might be speaking out of turn, but I think they're doing a double, with the amount of songs — I've been over a couple of times with the boys and added ideas on 46 tunes we had, and they've been working since then!" he said.

According to News.com.au, AC/DC's classic song "Highway To Hell" has been nominated in the "Most Performed Australian Work Overseas" category at the 25th Australian Performing Rights Association (APRA) awards.

The 20,000 members of APRA will decide the winners of the awards honoring songwriters. The ceremony will be held on June 5 in Melbourne.

yes, i wish too..they seem to like germany a lot, so i guess i could travel two hundreds km or so just to see them, if they come to germany. i'd travel a thousand km, but my mother wouldn't let me i'm afraid. i wish i'd live in the usa. it would be easier for me to see a lot of cool bands..europe sucks, and italy sucks even more. we gets movies and books months later than american people do. i'm so glad i can speak english - at least i can enjoy sites like this. ;)

Ah! you live in Germany?! Awesome, I went there a year ago, I would totally go to Germany to see AC/DC!! I went to Lollapalooza and met a guy from Austria who traveled all over the world to see Nine Inch Nails! He's been to 6 of their concerts and like 2 of them were in Europe, and the rest in the US and like Japan, I was like holy crap dedicated fan!
