AC/DC confirm Axl Rose To sing the remainder of tour
AC/DC has confirmed that Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose will join them as lead singer for the remainder of their tour.
The band said in statement (April 17): “AC/DC band members would like to thank Brian Johnson for his contributions and dedication to the band over the years. As much as we want this tour to end as it started, we support Brian’s decision to save his hearing.
“We are dedicated to fulfilling our touring commitments to all that have supported us over the years, and are fortunate that Axl Rose has kindly offered his support to help us fulfill (sic) this commitment.”
AC/DC has 12 European concerts booked in for May and June, including two UK shows: London’s Olympic Stadium on June 4 and Manchester’s Etihad Stadium on June 9.
Rose will then rejoin Guns N’ Roses for their “Not In This Lifetime” North American tour, which runs from June 23 to August 22.
Brian Johnson had been AC/DC’s frontman since 1980, joining the group following the death of previous singer Bon Scott. Rumours linking Axl Rose to the band had been swirling for several weeks.
