Published: February 19, 2011 - 4:36pm
AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson let slip the band's likely release date for their newest live album and concert film, hinting that we can expect the offering in six week's time.
"We've got a new live album which we shot in Argentina at the end of the last tour, which was about September. There was 300,000 people there, and it was just wonderful. We had about 12 cameras there and a great sound crew, and we just enjoyed the heck out of it," said Johnson.
The live album and DVD/Blu Ray will contain footage from band's shows from the River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires on December 2, December 3 and December 6, 2009. The arena's capacity held a sold out crowd of 65,000 people each show. "The live album comes out, with the video of those concerts, in about six weeks or something. So I'm looking forward to that," said Johnson.
"After that, we haven't made any plans; we just wanted to have a rest, 'cause we were on the road for two years. We played in front of five million people. and we deserve a rest, I think. We're pretty pooped. I know that sounds horrible to people that work hard, but believe me, it is hard work," said Johnson.
You can get a sneak peak of some of the footage from the concert in AC/DC's current video for 'Shoot to Thrill', which served as the official soundtrack single and video from Iron Man 2. The music video shows the band playing live in Beunos Aires, intercut with scenes from the superhero film.
