VIDEO: Axl Rose and AC/DC rock Washington DC

Axl Rose and AC/DC rocked the Verizon Center in Washington, DC on September 17 and video from the show has surfaced online.

The concert marked the ninth of ten rescheduled US tour dates the band are playing this fall with Rose as they wind down a world tour in support of 2014’s “Rock Or Bust.”

AC/DC’s now standard 24-song opened with the title track to their latest album while delivering classic tunes from both the Bon Scott- and Brian Johnson-eras.

Johnson was sidelined from the tour in March on the advice of doctors due to hearing loss issues, which prompted the Guns N’ Roses leader to step in to assist the Australian rockers for a 14-date spring run across Europe before returning for the current fall US shows.

“With Axl,” says lone founding member Angus Young, “we've been able to mix up quite a few songs with the older ones, and the fun part is when we get there on the stage, seeing it come to life in front of the audience."

“He's more in the Bon style – the rock & roll character,” adds the guitarist. “And he's got his own folksy humor. He's pretty quick with a quip. Axl has different vocal ranges. You can hear him one way in a Bon song. Then he can flip and do Brian, the higher register.”

Axl Rose and AC/DC will close out the Rock Or Bust world tour in Philadelphia, PA on September 20.
