AC/DC fans offered ticket refunds for Axl Rose-fronted gigs

Guns N' Roses singer will replace Brian Johnson for remainder of band's European tour

AC/DC fans have been offered ticket refunds for the band’s upcoming UK shows, which will see Guns N’ Roses‘ Axl Rose replace Brian Johnson as the band’s frontman.

Rose has been enlisted as a stand-in for Johnson for the remainder of AC/DC’s Rock or Bust World Tour, after the Australian singer was advised against performing live amid fears of suffering permanent hearing loss.

AC/DC currently have 12 European live dates booked in for May and June, including two UK shows: London’s Olympic Stadium on June 4 and Manchester’s Etihad Stadium on June 9.

Team Rock reports that AC/DC ticket holders have received an email from See Tickets that reads: “You have the opportunity to request a refund of your ticket. Refunds will be available from now until 5pm on Friday, May 6.”

NME has confirmed with See Tickets that fans will be offered refunds for AC/DC’s UK shows should they no longer wish to attend.

Team Rock also reports that other ticket companies have similarly offered refunds.

Brian Johnson had been AC/DC’s frontman since 1980, joining the group following the death of previous singer Bon Scott.

In a preview of what’s to come, guitarist Angus Young joined Axl Rose onstage at Coachella for Guns N’ Roses’ headline set during weekend one.
