Report: AC/DC Already Planning Next World Tour

WILLIAM WEST/AFP/Getty Images(LONDON) -- It looks as though AC/DC wants to get back out on the road, and soon.

In an interview with London's The Sun, guitarist Angus Young says the band is already planning its next 'round-the-world outing.

"Now we're thinking, 'How can we ever better the Black Ice world tour?'  But we will," Young said.

The success of the Black Ice tour and the album, he says, came from "such diehard fans, old and new," and that the band has "survived many changing fashions of music -- we've outlived the lot of them."
