Quickly after completing the North American leg of Guns N’ Roses‘ Not in This Lifetime tour, Axl Rose was back onstage Saturday night – this time with AC/DC – in Greensboro, North Carolina for the first of 10 rescheduled Rock or Bust U.S. shows with Rose filling in for Brian Johnson.
While the majority of the band’s set list mirrored the repertoire from the European jaunt, the rockers and Rose did unleash one surprise: The band’s first live performance of the electrifying T.N.T. cut “Live Wire” since October 1982.
Rose and AC/DC have made it a habit of dusting off fan favorites from the band’s catalog throughout their unlikely collaboration, including tracks like “Riff Raff,” “Rock n’ Roll Damnation,” “Touch Too Much,” “Dog Eat Dog” and “If You Want Blood (You’ve Got It).”
AC/DC with Rose’s tour continues August 30th at Fort Lauderdale, Florida’s BB&T Center and then works its way north before coming to a close September 20th at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center. A month later, Rose rejoins Duff McKagan and Slash as the Guns N’ Roses reunion tour heads to South America and Japan. AC/DC’s future, however, is less certain.
