AC/DC have announced the last 10 dates of their Rock or Bust tour, which may be the band’s last-ever worldwide trek since vocalist Brian Johnson is no longer in the band, having been ordered by doctors not to perform. Guns N’ Roses vocalist Axl Rose will fill in for all remaining shows.
The concerts were originally postponed in March when Johnson had to step down due to severe hearing damage. He has said that if he continues to perform he could go deaf.
The shows with Rose have received rave reviews, and AC/DC is excited about finishing up the tour. “This band has got a ton of energy and you’re going to see a fusion of all that terrific chemistry that we have felt ever since rehearsals in Lisbon,” guitarist and co-founder Angus Young said. “I want to get back out there onstage in the US with these guys so our audience can see and feel it too.”
