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.
