Some AC/DC fans weren't too stoked to hear that lead singer Brian Johnson would not be joining the Aussie rockers on their upcoming tour. That bummer turned to rage for a chunk of that fan group when it was announced that Axl Rose would be taking up Johnson's frontman mantle and serving as his replacement at the mic. Now, a ticketing agency is offering up a refund to fans who don't feel like shelling out to see Axl try his hand at "Highway to Hell" and other AC/DC hits.

Blabbermouth reports that See Tickets sent out an email to those who have purchased tickets for AC/DC's upcoming gig at London's Olympic Stadium. In it, they simply state that any ticket-holder has the opportunity to "request a refund" as long as they do so before May 6, about a month out from the June 4 concert.

It's safe to assume that Roger Daltrey would be one of those taking See up on their offer if he was planning on heading to Olympic Stadium: The Who singer said that Axl fronting AC/DC was basically glorified "karaoke" and that he felt terribly for Johnson in the wake of his departure.

AC/DC will kick off their tour in Lisbon—with Axl, who's still on the mend with a broken foot—on May 7.
