Oh, sweet child of mine, if you want to see AC/DC with Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose this summer you don't need to take a highway to Hell. 

The hybrid band announced their rescheduled U.S dates for their "Rock or Bust" Tour, and will be coming to Ft. Lauderdale on Aug. 30. It's only a 3 horu drive! 

Rose will be filling in for vocalist Brian Johnson who left AC/DC due to hearing loss. 

Guns N' Roses' "Not in This Lifetime" Tour ends on August 22, and five days later on Aug 27, Rose will begin touring with AC/DC in Greensboro, North Carolina. 

The band released their studio album,"Rock or Bust", in December of 2014, and it was the #1 album in 12 countries and #3 on the U.S Billboard charts.
