In a new “thank you” video posted online to AC/DC fans, Brian Johnson alluded to upcoming concerts. He said, “We wanna see you in your hometown. We’ll try everything we can to get there and play for you live, play these great tunes for you live.” He also asked fans to stay safe during the pandemic.

Their album Power Up, is now the fastest selling album of 2020 and is topping the charts in many countries around the world, as well as their single. About that he said, “We knew that it was a pretty good thing that we’d done, you know, we wanted to make Malcolm Young proud of it and it made us proud because we’d made Malcolm proud.”

He seemed genuinely thankful and said, “Four years ago you gotta remember, ya know, we were all but over – Some people thought. They forget about the AC/DC spirit. You never give in. You never leave your wounded behind, you always come back.”

Johnson also said that AC/DC would be releasing a virtual performance soon. While he and Stevie Young will be in England, Phil Rudd will be in New Zealand and Agnes will join from Sidney.
