AC/DC guitarist Angus Young says the band are looking forward to their upcoming fall US tour with Axl Rose. Originally set for spring, the ten show run was postponed in March when singer Brian Johnson was advised by doctors to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss.
Rose stepped in to assist the band and the pairing launched AC/DC’s European tour in Lisbon on May 7 to rave reviews worldwide. While the singer is currently playing dates with Guns N’ Roses on a summer stadium tour of North America, Young is preparing for AC/DC’s fall shows that begin August 27 in Greensboro, NC.
“The dates coming up in America,” says Angus during a new video highlights package of the European shows, “We’re all looking forward to getting out there and playing. We’re going to have a real blast.
“With Axl, we’ve been able to mix up quite a few songs with the older ones, and the fun part is when we get there on the stage, seeing it come to life in front of the audience.”
“Really looking forward to doing the American shows with Axl,” adds bassist Cliff Williams. “It’s going to be a really good time. It’s going to be great.”
