Guns N' Roses front man Axl Rose is going to be a busy man for the rest of the year. The rocker will be touring with his old bandmates on the "Not in This Lifetime" stadium tour. He will also hit the road as the new lead singer of AC/DC, replacing Brian Johnson on the band's "Rock or Bust" world tour.

AC/DC made the announcement this weekend on Saturday night on their website. Rose will perform with the band on their first European dates, which start May 7 in Lisbon, Portugal and ends June 12 in Aarhus, Denmark. He will then join Guns 'N Roses for their 20-city tour, which starts June 22 at Ford Field in Detroit and ends August 22 in San Diego.

AC/DC statement said 10 postponed U.S. AC/DC shows, including gigs in Cleveland and Columbus, will be rescheduled, too, and "announced imminently, also with Axl Rose."

"AC/DC band members would like to thank Brian Johnson for his contributions and dedication to the band throughout the years," the statement said. "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."
