VIDEO: AC/DC preview Axl Rose debut in Portugal

AC/DC have issued a video inviting fans to their debut performance with Axl Rose in Lisbon, Portugal this Saturday, May 7.

"Lisbon, here we come," says sole remaining founding member and guitarist Angus Young. "We're really excited to be here in Portugal. We're here to give you a great rock show, so we hope to all see you all there."

"Absolutely," agrees Rose. "We are very excited to be there."

"And we'll see you on Saturday," adds bassist Cliff Williams.

The short preview clip was filmed in the band’s rehearsal facility in the city, where fans have been camped outside recording audio of the sessions ahead of the European tour launch.

Rose will perform 12 shows with AC/DC in Europe between this weekend and the middle of June, when he’ll rejoin Guns N’ Roses for their summer stadium tour of North America that begins June 23 at Ford Field in Detroit, MI.

In March, AC/DC postponed the remaining 10 shows on their spring US tour after Brian Johnson was advised by doctors to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss.

AC/DC announced they will reschedule the postponed 10 US dates with Rose fronting the group.
