AC/DC will tour their homeland of Australia late next year “or in March, 2016″, fans at the global launch of new album Rock Or Bust were told.
"The band will be on a World Tour in 2015, which we're hoping will see them here in Oz late next year or before March in 2016," reported Hot Metal Online, who were at the event covering the global launch of Rock Or Bust in the town of The Rock in New South Wales.

While AC/DC were thought to have booked some venues this year, before rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young’ dementia forced him into retirement, no concrete touring plans have been announced for Rock Or Bust.

Interestingly, the new video – due to be released on today – depicts the band performing ‘in the round’, with a circular stage in the centre of a small arena. Rumours surfaced last week that AC/DC would perform in that configuration at stadiums and arenas around the world next year.
During the "Rock Or Bust" clip, the camera briefly lingers on Rob Richards, the drummer who filled in for troubled Phil Rudd during the shoot in London. Rudd seems almost certain not to tour.
There has also been speculation his replacement will be someone new, rather than previous skinsmen Simon Wright and Chris Slade.
Rock Or Bust is released on November 28 in Australia.
