Alice Cooper says fans who will see AC/DC with Axl Rose have “the golden ticket” and believes the Guns N’ Roses man has “the perfect voice” for the job.

AC/DC confirmed Rose as the guest vocalist for their remaining world tour dates at the weekend, replacing Brian Johnson after he was ordered to stop touring or risk going deaf.

And while fans are split on the decision to appoint Rose, shock rocker Alice Cooper is excited by the prospect.

He tells Rolling Stone: “Whoever has tickets to that show has got the golden ticket, because who doesn’t want to see that? I just think that’s such a unique combination.

“At first I thought it was an April Fool’s thing. I went, ‘Oh, come on.’ Then I started thinking about it and said, ‘You know, his voice is absolutely perfect for that band. That might just work.’”

Meanwhile, Cooper has added a further 13 dates to his Spend The Night With Alice Cooper 2016 tour. The new dates can be viewed in bold in the list below.
