Asked on how she feels about Rose singing in AC/DC, Vicky replied: “I think it’s cool, he sounds pretty good. He’s pulling it off and I think he’s happy, making one of his childhood dreams come true.”
Guns N’ Roses will kick off their tour on June 23 and trek across North America until August 22. So far, confirmed opening acts include Chris Stapleton for one show, Billy Talent for one show, Skrillex for one gig,The Cult for four concerts, Alice in Chains for five gigs, and Lenny Kravitz for four shows. At the moment, nine dates remain free of opening acts…

During the rest of the chat, Vicky briefly touched on classic GN’R drummer Steven Adler, saying she heard that the back injury he recently suffered will keep him unable to tour for four months. Adler was filmed jamming “Paradise City” only three days ago, sparking rumors about joining the band on the road after all.
