Here’s some big news for those about to rock: AC/DC will resume touring with Axl Rose of Guns N’ Roses as the new frontman.
AC/DC lead singer Brian Johnson recently dropped out of the band because of hearing loss.
The band was halfway through a tour with 10 remaining U.S. shows and more in Europe. They played to a packed Sprint Center in February before Johnson’s departure.
AC/DC said in a statement on Sunday that Rose had “kindly offered his support” to help the band.

Rose will join the band for its first European show on May 7 in Lisbon.
The U.S. dates for the “Rock or Bust” tour will be announced “imminently,” the band said.
The band thanked Johnson “for his contributions and dedication to the band throughout the years” and wished him luck with his “future ventures.”
Johnson joined AC/DC in 1980 after the death of original singer Bon Scott.
Rose, who has fronted Guns N’ Roses since 1985, will tour this summer with the reunited band that includes Slash and Duff McKagan.
Guns N’ Roses is scheduled to play Arrowhead Stadium on June 29.
