AC/DC has confirmed Axl Rose as their new lead singer for the Rock or Bust Tour.
Brian Johnson was advised to stop touring or he could have total hearing loss. Fans were worried if the Rock or Bust tour dates that got postponed would ever be rescheduled. The band has now announced on Facebook that Axl Rose will be filling in for Brian on the rest of the tour.
“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 this commitment.

After the European tour dates, Axl will go back and tour with Guns N’ Roses. The U.S. shows that were postponed will also be rescheduled. Axl will accompany AC/DC for those tour dates.
