AC/DC To Tour In Late 2008? - Jan. 10, 2008
According to the Spanish metal webzine The Metal Circus , AC/DC will tour during the second half of 2008. A source told the site that some of the AC/DC tour crew was informed that the group will hit the road later in the year. There are currently no details available regarding where or when the tour will start. In other news, Total Rock has reported that there's a fair chance that AC/DC will play one of the so-called "secret shows" in the UK in late January. Speculation is running wild regarding possible cities that will host these showcases, but the group's record label, Sony/BMG, is keeping things quiet, with Sony BMG Italy going as far as to deny that there are plans for an AC/DC album and tour at this moment. As previously reported, a two-and-a-half-minute Swiss TV report (courtesy of AZonline.ch) on the upcoming AC/DC special "secret" club gig - which will reportedly take place on January 25 at Glashaus in Reinach, Switzerland. Only 400 tickets are apparently available for the concert, which is part of a short mini-tour of small venues the band is allegedly planning on undertaking at the end of the month. According to the Spanish web site RafaBasa.com, AC/DC has been quietly working on its first all-new album since 2000's "Stiff Upper Lip" with legendary producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange, and is planning on releasing the effort - which is rumored to be titled "Strap It On" (a name that has apparently been bounced around for at least the last couple of years) - at the end of April. The group's guitarist, Angus Young, is also said to have fully recovered from a recent knee injury which had apparently contributed to the delay in getting the new record completed.
