Angus came off cold, like Walmart just replacing a cashier… like he's replacing a cashier.

That was a difficult cashier then... Brian wanted to stop touring (sth which would have terminated the band...) since 2001. Angus killed 2 birds with one stone here : he found a new singer and he gave the band another 5 (10?) years lifetime.
can't really blame him. HAve you heard the two songs played with G&R at Coachella? Angus still sounds amazing.

Do you think they will continue with Axl after these upcoming shows?
Maybe record a new AXL/DC studio album together?

I don't know. I think Rose was given a huge sum to do those remaining 2016 gigs. After that my guess is the band will hibernate (as they always do after a tour) and Angus might discreetly audition a new singer.
But your specualtions are as good as mine. Logically Axl should go back to G&R right after the bunch of AC/DC shows are played.

I think the same dcba, and really don't know either.
I was just wondering aloud when you said that Angus 'found a new singer and he gave the band another 5 (10?) years lifetime'...

AXL ROSE Makes First On-Camera Appearance With AC/DC

Well, that was dynamic. Excitement personified, eh?

As bizarre as this situation is,
AXL will absolutely KILL IT singing these songs.
He sounds ridiculously good right now.

Whether or not audiences accept him up there in place of Brian is another story.

I have no doubt of that. Just like I have no doubt that there are Stones tribute bands who play the Stones better than the ACTUAL Stones.

Would we prefer to see two guitarists onstage with Mick who could replicate peak Keith/Ronnie weaving from '81-'82, or to see Keith and Ronnie as they are in 2016, warts and all?

I do not believe that there are ANY tribute bands who play better than the ACTUAL Stones.

I, of course, would prefer to see Keith/Ronnie over ANY replacements.

I had tickets to see AC/DC AGAIN on the Rock or Bust tour here in Detroit.
I returned them for a refund well before AXL was even rumored for the gigs.

I will repeat that the situation is BIZARRE and I do not condone the decisions that have lead up to this current lineup.

But this is NOT AXL's fault.
He's been given an opportunity and I believe that HE WILL KILL IT onstage.

Point to where I blame Axl for anything - you can't. I simply said that the fact that his voice is superior to Brian's is NOT, in and of itself, a reason to replace Brian. A band is more than a random collection of skilled musicians who can execute songs at a high level.

anyone who has tickets to these shows and returns them has got to be out of their freakin mind.

for just a few shows Axl rose is fronting ac/dc-that is amazing.

it's a one in a lifetime deal too because after this Axl will go back to GnR and AC will either find a new singer or Brian will be back.

i'd hate to be the one looking at the video's of this and thinking"i gave my tickets back"

This is like one of those oldies acts with almost no original members.

Axl sang on one classic album 3 decades ago.

I am sure these people want their money back so they can go to some other once in a lifetime $200 concert.

Anybody know if refunds are available for the Olympic park?Hope so.

My goodness they don't even sound convincing in the interview plug.Do the decent thing and cancel.Of course they won't,it's about the money not the fans.What a set of greedy folk,they have totally destroyed their credability.What a sad note for the band to end on.

He wasn't fired and he's cool with Axl and the rest of AC/DC,i'm not sure how many times they have to repeat this to get it through people's heads.

alot of it comes from Jim bruer,who is a half retarted fanboy who used his small amount of fame from that lame comedy act to weasel his way into the AC/DC camp.He started opening his mouth when he shouldn't have and got the fans thinking all kinds of crazy shit.

It's Angus's band,he's gonna keep playing.he kept playing when Bon died,he kept going without Malcom and he's gonna quit now,why? because some random people say he should? i doubt he cares.
There was a very succesful AC/DC long before anyone had ever heard of Brian Johnson or Axl Rose and there still will be until Angus decides there isn't,that's just how it is.
right now it looks like there were enough fans who were on a wait list for tickets that will buy all the returns anyway so thats already worked out.

Axl is a big Bon Scott fan so you'll be probably get a heavy dose of that era and less of the latter day stuff.there is a goldmine of songs from the Bon era that fit his voice really well,we all saw him nail it at coachella.If i was going i would go back and listen to High voltage, Powerage,Let there be rock, highway etc because they'll probably do some of the deeper cuts off those.

I'm a huge AC DC fan. On a whim I caught the Dallas show in February - turned out to be amazing timing.

I'm also a realist- time waits for no man - and with these "classic" acts the fact is that age and failing health is catching up with all of them. No one is forcing anyone to buy tickets and I'm sure Axl will do fine.

My prediction- they will blow the doors off the European stadiums and after a few shows will announce the revised US arena dates. I will definitely be there!
