I don't speak Spanish, but the google traslation, which gave me some sentences that don't make much sence, says something like that the Spanish Live Nation wrote that AC/DC are looking for a new singer. That is far from confirmation IMO. Anyway, tickets for AC/DC WITH Brian still on sale: [www.oeticket.com]

About 3 weeks till the first European gig and we know absolutely nothing. It got really ridiculous quite a while ago. I will be really outraged if they announce a different singer a couple of days before the tour and there won't be the possibility of returning the tickets. I still hope Brian will be there though.

Like I mentioned on the other AC/DC thread, I'm sticking my neck out on this one and that Brian told the doc that he is going to finish the tour.

For guitar buffs this a wet dream becoming reality.

Second Angus' playing is extraordinary here. He should ditch the current line-up of AC/DC and reform the band with a bunch of guys in their 30/40's.

AC/DC Confirm Axl Rose Is New Lead Singer, Joining Band on Tour

"We are dedicated to fulfilling the remainder of our touring commitments to everyone that has supported us over the years, and are fortunate that Axl Rose has kindly offered his support to help us fulfill this commitment," band says in statement.

[www.rollingstone.com]

April 16, 2016

The rumors have been confirmed: Just hours before Guns N' Roses are scheduled to take the stage for their triumphant reunion gig at Coachella, AC/DC formally announced that – before GN'R's Not in This Lifetime Tour kicks off – Axl Rose will first join them as vocalist for the remaining dates of their Rock or Bust trek.

The band continued, "The European stadium tour dates begin on May 7 in Lisbon, Portugal and run through June 12 in Aarhus, Denmark as previously announced. Following this European run of dates with AC/DC, Axl Rose will head out on his Guns N' Roses, 'Not In This Lifetime' Summer Stadium Tour."

Just out of curiosity, was Myles brought up randomly? Cause two years ago he played a full AC/DC set with Gov't Mule on New Years Eve and it was friggen awesome! Basically a perfect AC/DC setlist:

[www.setlist.fm]

I tossed out Myles randomly, but seriously. He is a great rock and roll singer and might be (have been) able to pull off singing those AC/DC shows and made people happy. I saw him sing several times with Slash and he nailed it.

Looks like Axl is in.

Wow, who would have made a bet on this 5 years ago?

This whole Axl singing singing for AC/DC and then doing a stadium tour with GnFR reminds of some guys smoking cigarettes as they slosh gasoline into the tank of a truck caring a load of nitro-glycerine. What could possibly go wrong?

Not that Axl has ever gone off the rails or anything...

This is going to be interesting on many levels. For instance, it would be interesting hear what the concert insurance companies are thinking and doing and charging for these gigs.

I really had my doubts about Axl being a good choice for AC/DC but the periscope video from Coachella changed my mind.
Great performance from Angus and really looking forward to seeing the videows and reviews from the first gig at Lisbon May7th.
Also on their website it appears to imply that Brian has gone for good.
I hope I'm wrong.

I have had a broken leg / foot and I could walk around, just the first couple of days sitting more down than standing up. Axl can have a high supporting chair for a rest every now and then, but not necessary sitting down the whole time.

Dave Grohl was "playing the game" / "victim" sitting in the chair during the whole concert. It was more for publicity and getting attention than real necessity. DG is a crying little baby.

Not to defend David Grohl, but I think he broke his femur while Axl broke a toenail.

At any rate, I thought this Axl/DC news was some sort of a a twisted nightmare I was having last night...but now I see it's true.
Sad days for AC/DC fans...the band's legacy will forever be intertwined with Axl Rose.

*I totally agree. Frankly, w/ all his 'issues' I thought his stupid foot was a cover up. Does he think he garnered sympathy by saying
'well that's what happens when I sat on my fat ass watching TV in my house for 20 years doing nothing. First time off the couch, my bones crumbled. Here's a public pic for the insurance companies paid Dr. blah, blah, blah'
Sad. And gross.
Please, all these too old 'rockers' trying to cash in now as an afterthought
makes the rest of us (the RS) who've been WORKING
rant over, I'm in a mood,
thank you Axl for resurrecting 'Salt of the Earth'
but, show some respect.

Riff Raff sounds fantastic.
AC/DC songs are easier than GNR songs to sing for Axl.
He has got some problems on You Could be Mine, Coma, This I Love and Estranged.

I'm gonna defend Dave. He had a serious issue that required major surgery & "the throne" was the only way the docs & insurance carriers would let him continue to tour as quick as he did. He's a good guy & didn't want to disappoint his fans. It's not like he needed the money.

AC/DC always had integrity. Regardless of what you think of Axl Rose, thats not really my concern. I'm upset with how they are treating Brian, not giving him any chance to speak and seemingly, by the looks of their press release, completely done with him. "Oh, you sung on the best selling album of all time. OK, buh bye." Really not happen with how they are handling that. Especially now that the band is down Phil Rudd, Brian Johnson and Malcolm Young. Angus has really lost a lot of my respect unless something comes out that makes him look better.

The ONE band I really thought would end gracefully. Apparently not. Extremely sad, even when you take out the Axl Rose part, that they are hammering this name into the ground. They have more than enough money and this really divides what was previously a very united fan base.
