AC/DC reschedules Atlanta concert date with Axl Rose

The Axl Rose-fronted AC/DC will be back this fall to “Rock or Bust” in Atlanta.

The band has rescheduled its date from March – canceled the day before when singer Brian Johnson was ordered off the road to preserve his hearing – and will play Philips Arena Sept. 1.

Tickets for the original date will be honored in September. For those purchasing new tickets, they are $75-$125.

Rose officially joined the band in April and has received solid reviews for his performances with Angus Young, Cliff Williams, Stevie Young and Chris Slade.

Rose will be in Atlanta a few months prior to his AC/DC performance for his original day job – frontman for Guns N’ Roses, which performs at Georgia Dome July 27.
