AC/DC: ‘We’ll be back on the stage again soon’ – video

Aussie rockers say they'll celebrate their 40th anniversary in style

AC/DC have said that they hope to tour again soon, telling fans “We’ll be back on the stage again soon.”

Speaking to the Daily Star, guitarist Angus Young said the band have been writing new material for the follow up for 2008’s ‘Black Ice’.

He said: “Me and Malcolm [Young – guitarist] have begun trying a few things. Then we’ll be back on stage again.”

Young also added that the band want to make sure they give it their all onstage, saying: “You don’t want people to say: ‘Those guys used to be great.’ On this tour, I had a few problems, mainly with the legs. On stage, though, you don’t feel a thing.”

Asked about how they planned to celebrate their 40th anniversary as a band, singer Brian Johnson said: “I’ll be celebrating by just being here. We could be dead, so to still be standing on a stage after 40 years is good enough for me.”

AC/DC release a new live DVD ‘AC/DC: Live At River Plate’ on today (May 9). You can watch the trailer below.
