Singer Johnson reveals Aussie giants are waiting for a band member to recuperate – but say won’t say which one

AC/DC

On hold: AC/DC

AC/DC have put work on their new album on hold due to illness – but they’re hoping to be back in action later this year.

Singer Brian Johnson reveals the Aussie giants were waiting for someone to recuperate, although he wouldn’t identify the band member in question.

He tells the Cowhead Show: “One of the boys is a little sick. I can’t say anything, but he’s getting better. He’s doing wonderful. Full recovery fully expected.”

The band took some time off after their record-breaking Black Ice world tour. During 2012 one in every fifteen major concert tickets sold in the world was an AC/DC pass.

Lead guitarist Angus Young recently said: “We’re planning another tour. We’re thinking, ‘How can we ever better the Black Ice world tour?’ We don’t know how yet – but we will. We’ll go out again once we get a new album out.”

Johnson added: “We’ll stop when the beast doesn’t need feeding any more – when it doesn’t feel amazing any more.”
