AC/DC were forced to reschedule some American shows earlier this year as singer Brian Johnson faced a hearing loss diagnosis. Impeccable soundalike Axl Rose—right in the middle of a Guns N' Roses reunion—quickly stepped up to fill the Englishman's shoes.

Now AC/DC's American tour dates are officially back on the calendar. Here's the list of arena gigs:

8/27 — Greensboro, NC – Greensboro Coliseum
8/30 — Ft. Lauderdale, FL – BB&T Center
9/01 — Atlanta, GA – Phillips Arena
9/04 — Columbus, OH – Nationwide Arena
9/06 — Cleveland, OH – Quicken Loans Arena
9/09 — Detroit, MI – The Palace
9/11 — Buffalo, NY – First Niagara Center
9/14 — New York, NY – Madison Square Garden
9/17 — Washington, DC – Verizon Center
9/20 — Philadelphia, PA – Wells Fargo Center

In a press release, guitarist Angus Young said:

“This band has got a ton of energy and you’re going to see a fusion of all that terrific chemistry that we have felt ever since rehearsals in Lisbon. I want to get back out there onstage in the U.S. with these guys so our audience can see and feel it too.”

Rose, 54, started rocking with AC/DC on May 7. At a show in Vienna, Austria on the 19th, he overcame his broken foot and performed standing up again.
