VIDEO: Axl Rose and AC/DC open US tour in Greensboro

Axl Rose and AC/DC opened their Rock Or Bust US Tour at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, NC on Saturday.

The group’s 24-song set included the first performance of the 1975 classic, “Live Wire,” in 34 years.

hennemusic streamed the concert live as the first of a 10-date run of shows that were rescheduled after singer Brian Johnson was sidelined from the world tour in March due to hearing loss issues.

Rose approached AC/DC with an offer to help the band in Johnson’s absence, and the Guns N’ Roses leader made his debut with the Australian rockers in Lisbon, Portugal on May 7 to rave reviews worldwide as the lineup performed a 14-date European spring tour.

Opening night of the fall AC/DC shows comes just five days after Rose completed a summer stadium tour of North America with Guns N’ Roses at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, CA on August 22.

Axl Rose and AC/DC will next perform at the BB&T Center in Ft. Lauderdale, FL on August 30.
