The Sydney Morning Herald reports that AC/DC may be announcing their retirement as soon as today (April 15th). The famous rock band, which formed in 1973, is one of the most popular and highest-grossing bands of all time.
Entertainment commentator Peter Ford told radio station 3AW that after last year’s talk of a tour, nothing has been announced since. “The suggestion is being put to me that tour will never happen and we will never see AC/DC perform again or record again,” he said.
”My information is that (rhythm guitarist) Malcolm Young has moved himself and his family back to Australia, he’s very very ill and that AC/DC may well be history.”
‘‘AC/DC members have previously made a pact that no band members will be replaced should someone need to leave the band. No more is currently being said, however the particularly ill member of AC/DC’s son has stated that AC/DC may well be over.”
Reports that the band has a booking at a Vancouver studio for May 1st both contradict and yet leave open the possible truth of the rumours. The booking may suggest a new album is on the cards but it’s also possible that circumstances have changed since the studio booking.
