Brian Johnson may tour with AC/DC again, a source close to the rock group has revealed.
The hint comes after the frontman was forced to leave the band after he began losing his hearing in 2016, being replaced by Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose.
But it looks like Johnson might be returning, too, after he received help from audio experts Asius to relieve his hearing problems,
DJ Eddie Trunk has now hinted that the singer might rejoin the rock group on their upcoming tour: “I have sources that have told me that they are absolutely going to tour with Brian back again, that’s all unconfirmed from their camp, but I had it from some reliable sources.
“I think it’s pretty much a done deal that AC/DC, at the very least, are going to release some sort of record and it’ll be some sort of tribute to Malcolm [Young] just like ‘Back in Black’ was a tribute to Bon [Scott]. So I have no doubt about that and I’m pretty confident they’re probably going to do shows as well but I think at this point it’s pretty much just when they announce it.”
The rumour was reinforced earlier this year when American rock band Terrorizer recently claimed that the singer bumped into them at an airport and told them he was involved and “sick of denying it”.
Back in 2018, the iconic rock group was rumored to be working on a new album that would posthumously feature the work of Malcolm Young, their late rhythm guitarist.
