The Guns ’n’ Roses singer is filling in for departed frontman Brian Johnson.
AC/DC have confirmed that Guns N' Roses' singer Axl Rose will be fronting the band for the remaining dates on their latest world tour. Rose has recently reunited with his former Guns 'n' Roses bandmates Slash and Duff McKagan for a string of gigs including a headline slot at this weekend’s Coachella festival.
Axl Rose will front AC/DC for the reminder of their tour dates.
In a statement AC/DC said: "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 fulfil this commitment.”
The band currently have 12 European live dates booked for May and June and will be rescheduling previously postponed US dates with Rose as frontman. Once he’s finished with the AC/DC tour, Rose will rejoin Guns N' Roses for their 'Not In This Lifetime' North American tour, from June 23 to August 22.
In March longtime AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson was advised by doctors to "stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss”. Johnson has been fronting the Australian rock band since 1980, following the death of their previous singer Bon Scott.
