AC/DC guitarist Angus Young made a guest appearance with GUNS N’ ROSES Friday night (February 10) in Sydney, Australia.
Young joined the band to perform the AC/DC songs “Whole Lotta Rosie” and “Riff Raff”.
“We are gonna bring out a friend of ours,” GUNS frontman Axl Rose informed the crowd. “Ladies and gents, Angus Young!” Rose then poked fun at Young’s T-shirt and jeans, quipping: “Here’s something you never see. He did not have his school uniform, however I am wearing a school jacket.”
GUNS N’ ROSES bassist Duff McKagan tweeted earlier within the week that Angus greeted him and his bandmates when they arrived in Sydney. In addition, Fernando Lebeis, who’s part of GN’R’s management team, posted a photograph on Instragam of a nice flower arrangement with a “Welcome to Sydney!” card signed by Angus and the guitarist’s wife Ellen. “I’ve missed these two, Angus and Ella. AC/DC Family,” Lebeis wrote.
Young previously joined GUNS N’ ROSES on stage in April 2016 at the Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival to perform the AC/DC classics “Riff Raff” and “Whole Lotta Rosie”.
Rose replaced Brian Johnson last yr for U.S. and European AC/DC dates after the longtime AC/DC singer was ordered off the road by docs due to hearing issues.
The Australian leg of GUNS N’ ROSES’ “Not In This Lifetime” tour kicked off in Brisbane, and continues in Sydney on Saturday, before heading to Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
