Axl Rose to join AC/DC for world tour

Axl Rose is to join AC/DC as lead singer, replacing Brian Johnson, for the remainder of their world tour.

The Australian rockers said in a statement on Saturday (16Apr16) that the Guns N' Roses frontman would be taking over duties from Brian, who has had to bow out of touring in an effort to save his hearing.

They announced last month (Mar16) that they would be rescheduling a handful of US tour dates after Brian was advised by doctors to "stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss". The rockers also confirmed today that "the 10 postponed US shows will be rescheduled and announced imminently, also with Axl Rose".

"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," they said on Saturday.

"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."

Axl got some practice as the band's new frontman during Guns N' Roses Coachella headline set on Saturday, as AC/DC's guitarist Angus Young joined the band onstage for AC/DC's hits Whole Lotta Rosie and Riff Raff.

According to Billboard.com, Axl is a huge fan of the band, and had met with them more than a month ago in Miami, Florida, and Atlanta, Georgia, to discuss the possibility of him joining the rockers.

He'll make his debut as AC/DC frontman on 7 May (16) in Lisbon, Portugal, and will tour with them until 12 June, when the European leg of their Rock or Bust world tour comes to an end.

He will then rejoin Guns N' Roses for their Not In This Lifetime North American tour, which runs until 22 August.
