This is going to be fun!
AC/DC is resuming their world tour early next month with dates throughout Europe and more — and it’s going to be with Guns N’ Roses rocker Axl Rose at the helm!!
The GnR frontman is on lead vocals for the legendary rock band during their Rock Or Bust tour, after which Axl is going to head out himself on his own group’s Not In This Lifetime Summer Stadium Tour!
What a busy month for the man who is already recovering from a broken foot sustained during a show!!
AC/DC released a statement to the media about Brian Johnson‘s work with the band, and their decision to ride with Axl going forward, saying:
“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.”
