What kind of rock is AC DC

musicAxl Rose is the new AC / DC front man

Rumors have been around for a long time. Now the confirmation is available: The new singer of the cult band AC / DC is the singer of the no less cult rock band Guns N'Roses: Axl Rose.

The Australian band announced this on their homepage. The Guns NĀ“Roses frontman replaces AC / DC singer Brian Johnson on the band's current world tour. Johnson has severe hearing problems and could become deaf and has therefore canceled the tour. They want to thank Brian Johnson for his contributions and his commitment to the band over the years. Johnson is famous for his distinctive falsetto voice. With more than 200 million albums sold worldwide, AC / DC is one of the great bands in music history.

In Europe, fans will soon be able to see this amazing meeting of two rock archaeologists on stage. The European tour starts on May 7th in Lisbon. AC / DC will play in Germany, Hamburg and Leipzig at the end of May and beginning of June. AC / DC has taken a beating in the recent past: The band announced the final farewell to Malcolm Young, who suffers from dementia. He founded the group in 1973 with his brother Angus, who is still there as lead guitarist. Former drummer Phil Rudd, who was struggling with addiction problems, actually wanted to go on tour, but was canceled because he came into conflict with the law in New Zealand.

Broken foot Rose on stage

Guns N'Roses were back on stage together only a few days ago after their much acclaimed reunion. Even a broken foot couldn't stop Axl Rose from starting a tour in the old formation for the first time in around 20 years. For more than two hours, the band rocked a sold out arena in Las Vegas. Rose wants to continue his own "Not in this Lifetime" tour after helping out with "AC / DC".

Guns N'Roses had their breakthrough in 1987 with their first album "Appetite for Destruction". The record with hits like "Welcome to the Jungle" and "Paradise City" sold 18 million copies in the US alone. Guitarist Slash left the band in a dispute in the mid-90s, and other founding members got out as well. (tgs)
