    Any idea what gear Brian Johnson has behind him looks interesting

    Looks like a PrimaLuna CD Player, Pre Amp, and Mono Power Amps. I don't know the rest, but it does look interesting.

    I liked his message. He seems genuinely appreciative for his fans. I think the new album is great.

    Didn't he have to leave the band originally because he had gone almost completely deaf? I wonder how his hearing is now.

    I'm sure i've read he has some electronic aids that he's effectively trialled that he can't talk about yet due to commercial developments that have enabled him to hear enough (or very well) to be able to sing again, i think he said he'd love to be able to tell all but the 'guys' who have developed them are getting them ready for market so to speak... so watch this space

    He has what he recently described as "prosthetic ears" and reckons he can hear well enough to perfom.

    I agree. I think he's just happy to be able to sing again and the band was able to record a really solid album.

    Nice hifi, I'm sure ...

    I'm struck by what a decent chap he seems; no pretensions, no assumed rock star cool. I didn't know he was a Geordie!

    If we are counting County Durham as being a Geordie...Aye, he's not done bad for a Dunston lad.

    Saw him in Geordie, supporting someone or other at Newcastle City Hall...Maaaaan he could scream!

    Looks like Primaluna amps,Rouge audio pre and Nola KO speakers?
    not sure of the rest

    The speakers look like Nola Boxer KO3's.

    Nola Speakers

    Edit - Brian must have read this Stereophile post.

    (Sorry, can't get the speaker pictures to post).

    Love the look of the speakers with all the tweeters, and what's obviously a tropical-style home bar.

    How about some Geordie! Nice cover version.

    Wasn’t the concern that he would go completely deaf if he continued the tour? Not that it was effecting how well he could sing? I understood it to be a health decision...

    My first thought was “How much does it matter how good a nearly-deaf guy’s hi-fi is?” But, I would assume a man of his means who obviously loves music is bound to have something pretty good, regardless...

    I think it may have been both. I read an interview a week or two ago where he was talking about not being able to hear anything on stage the last bunch of gigs and trying to sing completely from muscle memory. I’m trying to remember where it was.

    I would have thought his hifi would consist of a couple of Marshall stacks.
