AC/DC has made it official with Axl Rose as their front man, posting a message on their official Facebook page confirming the news. They thanked Brian Johnson for his tenure on stage and supported his decision to “save his hearing” and follow doctor’s orders to stop touring. Rose will step in with the group for the 12 scheduled dates of their current European tour, rejoining Guns N’ Roses for their reunion tour later this summer. The band will also bring Rose back for a series of shows in North America that were canceled after Johnson received his diagnosis.
Now for folks wondering what this version of AC/DC will sound like, there wasn’t much of a delay in getting a taste. Angus Young joined Guns N’ Roses for the first of their headlining shows at Coachella on Saturday night, busting out the classic “Whole Lotta Rosie” for the audience.
