Axl Rose Is The New Lead Singer Of AC/DC, Angus Young Rocks With Guns N’ Roses At Coachella

Just hours before Guns N’ Roses’ highly anticipated appearance at Coachella, AC/DC announced that Axl Rose would be their new lead singer. The GNR lead singer replaces Brian Johnson who was forced to quit the legendary band because there was a chance that he could have lost all of his hearing.

AC/DC released a statement:

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.

Axl will join AC/DC for their European tour that begins on May 7 in Lisbon, Portugal and ends on June 12 in Aarhus, Denmark. Immediately following that tour, Axl will rejoin with Guns N’ Roses for their “Not In This Lifetime” summer stadium tour.
