Noiseworks vocalist Jon Stevens has been announced as the new vocalist for AC/DC.

The ‘Hot Chilli Woman’ vocalist is taking over Axl Rose’s role after the frontman was unable to commit to future touring commitments due to the success of his recent Guns N’ Roses run.

Rose took over the position last May after Brian Johnson was deemed at risk of permanent hearing damage and forced into retirement.

No Australian tour dates have been announced.
