IS AC/DC DONE: Rumors Swirl About Malcolm’s Health and AC/DC’s Future

Published on April 15, 2014

Music fans are waiting for rock band AC/DC to confirm or deny the latest rumours over their future.

Whispers surfaced this morning that the band’s 40th anniversary tour may be axed due to the health of one member, with some suggesting guitarist Malcolm Young may be unwell.

The band’s publicist has yet to comment and there has been no official statement from the notoriously private band on the new retirement speculation.

Showbiz commentator Peter Ford tweeted “there was some sad detail” behind the rumoured decision.

Earlier, Ford said on 3AW radio that his information was that “we may never hear them perform or record ever again”.

AC/DC, formed in November 1973 by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, are one of the highest-grossing bands of all time. They have sold over 200 million albums over the past 40 years.

Fans had anticipated an anniversary tour to mark either their formation in November 1973 or the release of High Voltage in February 1975.

Back in 2012 singer Brian Johnson revealed work on their 16th album had been delayed due to a health issue with one member.
