When it was rumored that Axl Rose would join AC/DC after Brian Johnson could no longer perform live, I laughed it off. At that time the Guns N’ Roses reunion tour was still something we weren’t sure would last. So how could an unpredictable Axl handle doing that AND taking over duties for another all-time great band? But then Angus Young came out during GNR’s performance at Coachella….
Not sure about you, but that was outstanding. Axl has covered AC/DC before in concert, so we knew he COULD do it, but SHOULD he? Angus, Cliff, and Axl cleared things up…
With “Axl/DC” officially born, it was time to rock…
Yes, Axl is not Brian Johnson nor Bon Scott. Yes, this isn’t “AC/DC.” But there is no denying Axl Rose is the right man for the job. He is not only singing his butt off, but enjoying playing with his idols…
Thank you Europe! Thank you 2 all the ACDC fans! 👍🏼⚡️😎 Huge thanks 2 ACDC 4 allowing me 2 b part of their world!! See U in the US!🌎⚡️🔜

After rave reviews from every single Guns N’ Roses reunion show, Axl has again made himself a must-see front man. We have no idea what the future holds for Brian Johnson. Cliff Williams has announced his retirement after this tour. Angus Young has said the future of AC/DC, in whatever form, is uncertain. So if you have the chance to see “Axl/DC,” you may truly see a once-in-a-lifetime event. So it’s either rock..or bust.
