AC/DC is getting back on the road with a new vocalist: Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose.

The band announced this weekend that Rose will be joining them on the remaining dates of their Rock or Bust tour. Last month, AC/DC rescheduled 10 shows after doctors told singer Brian Johnson that he should stop performing live or risk total hearing loss.

The band will resume their world tour with Rose beginning May 7 in Lisbon, Portugal, and the rescheduled U.S. shows will be announced soon.

“AC/DC band members would like to thank Brian Johnson for his contributions and dedication to the band throughout the years,” the band said in a statement. “We wish him all the best with his hearing issues and future ventures. As much as we want this tour to end as it started, we understand, respect and support Brian’s decision to stop touring and save his hearing. We are dedicated to fulfilling the remainder of our touring commitments to everyone that has supported us over the years, and are fortunate that Axl Rose has kindly offered his support to help us fulfill this commitment.”
