AX/DC (or AC/DC With Rose) are playing a total of 10 dates to make up for all of those shows that were cancelled once Brian Johnson bowed out of their tour due to hearing loss. Angus Young released a statement about the re-scheduled shows that might put all you Axl-haters off selling your tickets.
“This band has got a ton of energy and you’re going to see a fusion of all that terrific chemistry that we have felt ever since rehearsals in Lisbon. I want to get back out there onstage in the US with these guys so our audience can see and feel it too.”
According to Rose, he’s felt an immense amount of pressure to do right by Johnson and AC/DC’s die-hard fans. So, it’s possible that fans will see the result of an Axl more focused than he usually is on doing right by his own GnR fans.
“I wasn’t looking at it like, ‘I’m singing for AC/DC.’ I was looking at it like, you know, if I can, and if they think I’m able to do it,” he said. “I’m just trying to do it justice for the fans.”
Who knows how long this partnership will last, so it should be, if nothing, an interesting moment in rock history. Check out the full list of tour dates below.
