WASHINGTON, June 1 (UPI) -- AC/DC's Rock or Bust World Tour is returning to the United States with a set of newly rescheduled tour dates.
Guns N' Roses singer Axl Rose has stepped in for lead singer Brian Johnson for the band's 10-date tour, which is set to launch Aug. 27 in North Carolina. The dates were announced after the band and Rose successfully performed a string of shows in Europe.
"This band has got a ton of energy and you're going to see a fusion of all that terrific chemistry that we have felt ever since rehearsals in Lisbon," AC/DC musician Angus Young said in a statement on the band's website.
"I want to get back out there onstage in the U.S. with these guys so our audience can see and feel it too," he added.
Lead vocalist Brian Johnson was forced to leave during the middle of the tour earlier this year in order to protect his already impaired hearing ability. Axl Rose offered his services to the band and the tour was rescheduled to accommodate the Guns N' Roses singer.
The rescheduled U.S. Rock Or Bust World Tour dates featuring AC/DC and Axl Rose are as follows:
Aug. 27 -- Greensboro, N.C. Aug. 30 -- Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Sept. 1 -- Atlanta, Ga. Sept. 4 -- Columbus, Ohio Sept. 6 -- Cleveland, Ohio Sept. 9 -- Detroit, Mich. Sept. 11 -- Buffalo, N.Y. Sept. 14 -- New York, N.Y. Sept. 17 -- Washington, D.C. Sept. 20 -- Philadelphia, Penn.
