GN’R, Angus Young Perform Together At Sydney Gig

Axl Rose spent time performing with AC/DC during 2016, and Angus Young returned the favor on Friday (February 10) in Sydney.

The guitarist stepped on stage during Guns N’ Roses's show in his home town of Sydney, playing versions of AC/DC's "Whole Lotta Rosie" and "Riff Raff" with the band.

Rose stepped in to front AC/DC last spring for tours of Europe and North America after singer Brian Johnson was ordered off the road by doctors due to hearing issues; Young has not yet announced  how he plans to proceed with the band, and if Rose will continue to be involved.

Young greeted GNR when it arrived on Wednesday (February 8) in Sydney, dressed as an airport security worker, which bassist Duff McKagan relayed via Twitter.
