    This is way better than “playing tennis with Phil’s nephew tomorrow”

    42_39_56 you should know better. THAT is the greatest line ever.


    This is true.

    But holy hell: “I lived across the Street from Angus and he has been My mate all My life and had Invites for the funerals of George and Malcolm from Angus.” will live on forvever as second place.

    Yeah, nothing's coming today. I was somewhat hopeful at first, but it's just too late now I feel. If it ain't announced this month, then I'd say who knows anymore. It could be never, but let's fucking hope not. I don't wanna be on here 5 years from now discussing what the final cancelled ACDC project would have been like with tiny bits of leaked songs floating around the internet, I wanna be on here 5 years from now discussing how good/bad the album was and how lucky we were to even get it in the first place...

    You’re totally right. My thoughts exactly. Today ain’t the day. End of story. I’ve kinda established for myself that it’ll likely be announced between 9am and 3pm EST because that would be a good time for most of the world. Not too late and not too early and that even includes Europe.

    I doubt it means November 2nd... it’s way too far in advance for them to nail that into place. And why would they have waited that long in the first place? It makes very little sense

    He's privy to a bit more than most, but those in the know tend to be careful with their words.

    The Vancouver leaks were a double-edged sword. On the one hand they created a wave of joy to know the band was doing something. On the other hand, they created an increasingly unbearable weight of expectation for some.

    Very well put, Briany. A big part of me wishes we had never seen the Vancouver pics or even heard that they were there. It was clearly never AC/DC’s intention for the public to know they were there. Heck, when compared to 2014 there’s far fewer photos (plus they seem much less candid about photography this time around).

    The people in their inner circle, the ones they are friends with or that they have a professional relationship with are damn good at keeping secrets. It seems that with all the people they have come in contact with somebody would have leaked something.
    I wish I had friends like that.

    Do they really? I said it as a joke, the date is way too far in future imo.

    I started thinking, why did we believe this 11/2 thing in the first place? Wasn't it just a picture posted by an absolutely random user?

    A tour is more doubtful, I think.

    Well...this forum exploded with expectations since August. Now it's a hard landing as things did not happen as fast as fans were hoping for so the atmosphere changes from enthusiasm to uncertainty.

    I am still positive that the recordings will be released and there still is a good chance for shows.

    Stay patient. Stay calm.

    Thank you Jem. I appreciate you telling us what you are allowed to tell us.

    My guess, is that it is one of the following...

    a. An issue with their current or potential future label
    b. Because of the Malcolm recorded tracks, maybe it’s an issue with his estate
    c. It could be an issue of % splits between band members or “one member”
    d. The quality of Malcolm’s recording

    e. Not being serious here - Axl’s plane was delayed and he threw a hissy fit... and still hasn’t shown up to the recording studio to record his side of the double album.
    f. Not being serious here - Slade hasn’t programmed his drum machine yet for the second side of the double album. (Before people bite my head off, I love slade and thank him for stepping in when Phil had his issues. I consider him, acdc’s #2).

    I wasn’t a religious man until today. I pray for AC/DC

    I suspect it is to do with insurance for any tour

    Brian having serious hearing issues and only sung 1 song live since he left ROB, i would not be surprised if he is uninsurable, it is a huge risk sending him out on the road, a cancelled show costs tens of millions

    Likely getting insurance for Phil will be difficult too given his erratic behaviour and addictions in the past

    There is no reason why they could not release an album without a tour though
  17.  
    I think we can forget about any news for the foreseeable IMO.

    I do believe though if we are going to get one final tour from the current 'main band', Young/Young/Johnson/Rudd/Williams then it is now or never, mainly due to failing health/age & the willingness of Brian & Clive to tour.

    One glimmer of hope though, he looked confident and at ease in that performance. It wasn't his best (a bit off on the 2nd verse onwards) but he didn't look troubled.
  18.  
    Something tells me that Angus wants Phil onboard on a tour aswell. I actually think that might be an even bigger risk. Do they need a replacement drummer behind the curtains?
    I doubt Brian is uninsurable.

    • AC/DC rock music: grizzly
    • Feb 12th 2019
     
    Don't think either Phil or Brian would be uninsurable, but the risk ratings could be massive.

    It feels like everything is stuck in the twilight zone right now.
  19.  
    If you think about what happened last time around, they announced Rock or Bust and then the whole Phil thing happened, leaving the tour sort of up in the air for a while. I would imagine not wanting to go through the waiting process like that again and just have everything all shored up and ready to go for an announcement.

    They have shown in the past they are willing to wait (for Cliff to get his Australian visa to record Powerage, when Cliff had his hand injury prior to Black Ice, etc) so I'd rather wait too than get premature information.
