Brian Johnson announces it's "very likely" AC/DC will be touring this year

In very good news coming from the AC/DC camp, vocalist Brian Johnson has announced that it is "very likely" that the band will be touring again soon.

The Australian rock quintet's future had been in doubt after it was announced that guitarist Malcolm Young had been suffering in very ill health over the last few months, but it seems that the band are still prepared to head out once again.

In a statement written by Johnson about 'Cars That Rock', a TV show he produces, he says, "We hope to bring you more shows in the near future but, of course, there is the slight distraction of my day job with AC/DC – and it looks very likely that we will be on the road again before the end of the year. So stand by for more music – and more Cars That Rock. thanks – Brian"

Although it does appear that Malcolm Young will not be part of the future touring commitments as he is yet to make a full recovery, but in April this year, the band quashed rumours of a split, explaining that Young would be "taking a break" while the band continue to perform and write in his absence.
