When AC/DC's Brian Johnson became acutely ill earlier this year and was further advised not to continue singing for the band, the remaining band members had to look at other possible solutions.
They have now found the solution by asking Axl Rose from Guns N`Roses to become the lead singer at the remaining concerts during the ongoing Rock Or Bust tour which starts up again on May 7 in Lisbon, Portugal.
The Australian rockers announced early Sunday on the band's website that Axl Rose will fill in for Brian Johnson.
"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."
If the switch from Guns N' Roses to AC/DC becomes permanent remains to be seen.
