NEW YORK (AP) — Along with prepping a reunion tour with Guns N' Roses, Axl Rose is joining AC/DC on the road.

AC/DC announced Saturday that Rose will replace Brian Johnson on its Rock or Bust World Tour beginning May 7 in Lisbon. Rose will remain with the band through its European dates and 10 rescheduled U.S. shows.

Johnson is pulling out of the tour after being advised by doctors that further concerts could permanently impair his hearing. The band says it supports his decision to withdraw as much as it wants the tour to "end as it started."

Rose will return to Guns N' Roses for a summer tour. The band performed Saturday at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival, where it was joined by AC/DC's Angus Young.
