According to Billboard, as expected, AC/DC will embark on an 18-month world tour beginning this October. Creative Artists Agency managing partner Rob Light confirmed the news during a touring panel today (July 28) at the 83rd annual IAAM conference and trade show in Anaheim, CA.
Light didn't reveal further details about the trek, which will come in support of AC/DC's upcoming Wal-Mart exclusive release. A single is expected to hit radio in August.
Also, "We have a great idea for KISS to go out and do big arena tour," Light noted.
AC/DC's forthcoming album will in fact be called Black Ice. It will be released on October 27th. The new single, 'Runaway Train', will be released in late August. Black Ice is AC/DC's first studio album in eight years. It was recorded in Canada at Bryan Adams' studio under the production guidance of Brendan O'Brien. It will be the band's 15th studio album. Their last album was Stiff Upper Lip in 2000 but the band maintained a profile with DVD.
