While GnR fans have been super hyped over the possibility of a full blown reunion tour it appears Axl may have another gig he’s focusing on. Reports online indicate it’s all but a done deal that Axl Rose will be the one to fill in for Brian Johnson on the rest of the ACDC tour.
You’ll recall ACDC postponed their tour this month and said they would likely hire a guest vocalist as Brian Johnson was at risk of completely losing his hearing if he kept performing.
A radio host in Atlanta, where AC/DC stopped its tour, said that he spotted Axl Rose in the city and that he was practicing with the band.
“It’s all but a done deal that Axl will front AC/DC for the 10 remaining shows” Jason Bailey said on station WNNX.
Yesterday, Malcolm Young’s son, Ross Malcolm Young shared a news story about the rumored Rose-AC/DC hookup on Facebook.
When someone commented that he was “opening a can of worms”, Ross replied, “It’s true.”
UPDATE: The band has issued a statement “Nothing official to announce. Will update you if that changes.”
