AC/DC will reportedly headline North American festivals next year which will also mark the return of singer Brian Johnson to the group.
Legendary rock band AC/DC posted on social media this summer for the first time in almost 2 years. They have strongly hinted at new activity from the band. Other sources are indicating the band will headline North American festivals in 2020.
The mystery of Metallica’s new countdown has revealed that the band will be headlining five major American festivals in 2020. They include Epicenter, Welcome To Rockville, Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival , Louder Than Life and Aftershock.
Rumors for the rest of the bands that will join Metallica on those festivals have begun to rise up, with one Chicago-area source, the local DJ and promoter Nick Fury, claiming to have inside knowledge. According to him, Slipknot is rumored to be performing at all of these festivals as well. AC/DC, featuring the return of Brian Johnson on vocals, are still rumored to be performing at one or two of the 5 festivals with an official announcement coming in the next few months.
In August, Brian Johnson and drummer Phil Rudd were photographed at the Warehouse Studios in Vancouver – the same location where the band had previously recorded their last three studio albums.
Also, Eddie Trunk has said on his recent show that “reliable sources” have told him that AC/DC is gearing up to tour again with Brian Johnson on vocals. He also said that the new AC/DC album will be a tribute to late guitarist Malcolm Young.
