by Alisha Jackson

It looks like Axl Rose will be fronting AC/DC longer than initially expected. This morning, the band released an official statement to their website confirming that Axl will be following Angus Young, Cliff Williams, Stevie Young, and Chris Slade to the United States, for the final ten re-scheduled tour dates of their Rock Or Bust World Tour.

“While packing out stadiums across Europe to rave reviews from critics and fans alike this summer, AC/DC have today announced full details of their re-scheduled USA tour dates. The AC/DC ‘Rock or Bust World Tour’ returns to America for ten final shows in August and September 2016. They are in Greensboro, Fort Lauderdale, Atlanta, Columbus, Cleveland. Detroit, Buffalo, New York, Washington & Philadelphia.Original tickets will be honored for all rescheduled dates, refunds are available at point of purchase.”

“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,” Angus Young commented. “I want to get back out there onstage in the US with these guys so our audience can see and feel it too.”

Their statement also commented on Brian Johnson‘s absence.

“Not for the first time last year, AC/DC were hailed as the biggest selling live act in the world when, sadly, vocalist Brian Johnson was forced to step down midway through the U.S. tour after being advised by doctors that he risked total hearing loss if he continued to perform live. For the shows in Europe with Axl Rose on vocals, AC/DC have been surprising fans by including rarely played tunes from their formidable archive such as ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Damnation’, ‘Riff Raff’, ‘Touch Too Much’ and ‘If You Want Blood (You’ve Got It)’.”

8/27/16 Greensboro, NC Greensboro Coliseum
