AC/DC guitarist Angus Young made a guest appearance with Guns N’ Roses this past Wednesday night (July 12) in The Netherlands during the European leg of the latter band’s “Not In This Lifetime” tour.
Young joined Guns N’ Roses to play the AC/DC classics “Whole Lotta Rosie” from 1977’s “Let There Be Rock” and “Riff Raff” from 1978’s “Powerage”. The guitarist appeared in regular street clothes instead of his trademark schoolboy outfit.
Young previously played with Guns N’ Roses on June 22 in Hannover, Germany and at two shows in Sydney, Australia in February. He also jumped on stage with the group in April 2016 at the Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival.
Guns N’ Roses lead singer Axl Rose did a string of European and North American concerts with AC/DC in 2016, mostly to fan and critical acclaim.
It is unknown whether Rose will continue singing with AC/DC. The band’s future remains in doubt after the band completed its world tour in support of 2014’s “Rock Or Bust”, a cycle that saw a massive turnover in the group’s personnel. Sole original member Angus Young has not yet indicated whether the group will continue recording and touring.
In March 2016, AC/DC’s singer of 35 years, Brian Johnson, had to leave the band’s North American tour after doctors told him he might lose his hearing, while 40-year bassist Cliff Williams announced his retirement at the rescheduled trek’s conclusion.
The lineup that completed the tour consisted of Williams, Angus Young, Rose, Chris Slade on drums and Angus’s nephew Stevie Young on guitar.
GN’R will come back to North America for at least another fifteen stadium dates this summer, starting on July 27 in St. Louis and ending on September 8 in San Antonio.
