The rumours are all true; Guns N’ Roses’ Axl Rose is joining AC/DC for the rest of their world tour.

After news Brian Johnson had been forced to quit the band at risk of total hearing loss if he continued performing, Rose has taken up singing duties for the remaining dates on AC/DC’s Rock or Bust tour.
And people are pretty ferociously unhappy about this fact;
@acdc @seetickets So obviously I will be wanting my money back as I would rather they called it a day than have an idiot on vocals

@acdc Only thing worse than replacing Brian Johnson? Replacing him with Axl.

@acdc Absolutely gutted. As a life long AC/DC fan I feel totally let down by the way this has been handled. The greatest band ever ruined 😢
