AC/DC recruited Rose after their long-time frontman Brian Johnson was advised against performing live on medical grounds. The band play two UK shows this month: London’s Olympic Stadium on June 4 and Manchester’s Etihad Stadium on June 9.

Asked about whether Rose had enlisted advise from Johnson, the singer told NME: “I have not spoken with Brian, only because we haven’t spoken much about Brian.

“There hasn’t been any negative talk with the guys or anything, it’s just the time schedule of having to get things together for the shows, while also I had Guns N’ Roses commitments and then breaking the foot. The day I found out it was broken I left the hospital to rehearse. My only day off was the surgery day and the next day was back to rehearsals.”
