The group, which postponed the final 10 dates of its North American tour -- including a March 20 stop at the Palace of Auburn Hills -- due to hearing issues that are forcing singer Brian Johnson to retire, has confirmed that GNR's Axl Rose will be its new frontman for the remainder of its Rock Or Bust World tour.
Rose will join AC/DC for a 12-show European run that begins May 7 in Lisbon Portugal and wraps June 12 in Aarhus, Denmark. The announcement says that postponed "will be rescheduled and announced imminently," with Rose singing.
Rose and GNR -- which includes original members Slash and Duff McKagen, begin a 21-date Not In This Lifetime summer stadium tour on June 23 at Detroit's Ford Field. The group played Saturday, April 15, at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California, one of seven dates it's playing this month.
