VIDEO: AC/DC singer & Billy Joel perform You Shook Me All Night Long in New York

AC/DC singer Brian Johnson joined Billy Joel for a version of “You Shook Me All Night Long” at New York’s Madison Square Garden on March 21, and newly-released pro-shot footage of the performance is available.

The date was part of Joel’s ongoing residency at the famed venue, where he plays one show each month.

AC/DC has been making headlines recently as rumors surfaced about the band’s status and future in the wake of rumors surrounding the health of guitarist Malcolm Young and their possible retirement.

“After forty years of life dedicated to AC/DC, guitarist and founding member Malcolm Young is taking a break from the band due to ill health,” said the band in a released statement. “Malcolm would like to thank the group’s diehard legions of fans worldwide for their never-ending love and support.”

“In light of this news,” they added, “AC/DC asks that Malcolm and his family’s privacy be respected during this time. The band will continue to make music.”

Various media outlets have reported Young, the older brother of bandmate and lead guitarist Angus Young, has been dealing with health issues for some time, which Johnson alluded to in an interview this year.

Meanwhile, Johnson has confirmed the group will enter a Vancouver recording studio next month as planned.
