The Guns N' Roses frontman will join the Rock Or Bust stadium tour when it resumes May 7 in Lisbon, Portugal.
The Australian rockers announced tonight (April 16) that Rose will step in for Brian Johnson, who had to bow out from touring due to hearing issues, issuing the following statement:
"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."
