Rose will be filling in for Brian Johnson, who was unable to continue the tour because he is suffering from hearing loss.

Rose only tweeted a mysterious lightning bolt.

The reactions from AC/DC fans about Johnson’s replacement have been mixed:

. axlrose</a> and I discussed this last Friday in Vegas. Now it&#39;s out. Congrats Axl. This is a dream scenario for him <a href="https://t.co/7ZHvXIQAky">https://t.co/7ZHvXIQAky</a></p>&mdash; Eddie Trunk (EddieTrunk) 17 April 2016

Can't wait for Axl Rose to replace posh spice on the Spice Girls reunion tour.

Axl singing with AC/DC? Sounds fun if you ask me!! Replacing Brian Johnson? Never, they're just playing dates to avoid massive refunds!

Just woke from this weird dream, where we can now go to a double dissolution election to vote Axl Rose out of AC/DC.

Well, fans can actually vote:

And some even drew parallels with the current political crisis in Brazil:
