Axl Rose Rumored to Front AC/DC for Remaining Tour Dates
AC/DC posted a statement earlier this month saying that they would be postponing the rest of their tour due to Brian Johnson's alleged hearing loss. Now rumors are swirling that Axl Rose may be taking over singing duties for the band.
Alternative Nation reports that a 'very, very good source' says that the Guns N' Roses vocalist will be filling in as frontman for the remaining ten shows of AC/DC's tour.
"This is what I’m being told, Axl was meeting with the AC/DC group, because it’s all but a done deal that Axl will front AC/DC for the 10 remaining shows. All 10, including Atlanta.
From what I was told, this was all kind of new inside information to me, Angus is a very black and white guy. He’s like, Brian, for health reasons, can’t continue fronting the band. He was supposed to retire after the last tour, so they wanted to continue going out on the road and continue making music, so if you can’t do it, we appreciate your services, but the show must go on.
They’re in town, they were auditioning people for the job, and then they flew Axl in, again, this is from my source."
Here are some clips of what it might sound like if Axl were to front AC/DC:
