Rock News Story Of The Year No. 2: AC/DC
In early May, new audio of Axl Rose rehearsing with AC/DC in Lisbon, Portugal surfaced.
Following the leak of snippets of the group playing “Thunderstruck” and “Shoot To Thrill” as captured by fans outside a rehearsal facility, audio of three full songs – “Hells Bells,” “Hell Ain’t A Bad Place To Be” and “Back In Black” – was posted just days before the start of the band’s European tour in the city on May 7.
At the time, Rose was scheduled to perform shows with AC/DC in Europe before rejoining Guns N’ Roses for their summer stadium tour of North America that would begin in late June in Detroit, MI.
