AC/DC have finally confir4med that the Guns N’ Roses lead singer will be joining them for the remainder of their ‘Rock Or Bust’ tour which include the European leg of their tour, as well as a few of their postponed shows in the U.S.
A statement from AC/DC reads as follows:
“AC/DC band members would like to thank Brian Johnson for his contributions and dedication to the band throughout the years. We wish him all the best with his hearing issues and future ventures. As much as we want this tour to end as it started, we understand, respect and support Brian’s decision to stop touring and save his hearing. We are dedicated to fulfilling the remainder of our touring commitments to everyone that has supported us over the years, and are fortunate that Axl Rose has kindly offered his support to help us fulfill this commitment.”
Here’s what Axl’s schedule looks like for the next little while:
May 7th – June 12th ~ Axl touring Europe with AC/DC for their ‘Rock Or Bust’ tour
June 23rd – August 22nd ~ Axl touring with Guns N’ Roses for the ‘Not In This Lifetime’ summer tour
After the Gn’R shows, Axl will once again join AC/DC as they make up the 10 U.S. shows they had to postpone.
Last night at their Coachella gig, Axl brought Angus Young on stage to give a sample of what the new AC/DC + Rose collaboration will sound like.
