Guns N’ Roses rock AC/DC classic in Lisbon

Guns N’ Roses rocked the AC/DC classic, “Walk All Over You”, during a June 4 performance in Lisbon, Portugal, and fan-filmed video of the song has surfaced online.

The track from AC/DC’s 1979 album, “Highway To Hell”, was featured during the opening night of the band’s 16-date European tour, which will mix headline shows with festival appearances at the Sweden Rock Festival and France’s Hellfest before it wraps up in Hanover, Germany on July 15.

Axl Rose performed with AC/DC in 2016 after singer Brian Johnson left the "Rock Or Bust" tour when he was advised by doctors that he was risking total hearing loss; Johnson revealed that the issue began while racing at the 2008 Watkins Glen International when he suffered a punctured left ear drum after forgetting to put his ear plugs in during the event.

Rose helped AC/DC complete the final dates of the series in Europe and North America.

“Axl was really very generous, and he helped us out to get through our touring side at a difficult spot,” said Angus Young in 2020. “He had contacted us and said he could help if it didn't interfere with his own commitments of what he was doing. He wanted to come in and try songs that he himself liked, and he was suggesting songs I hadn't played in a long time.

“I'm definitely grateful that he volunteered, and that had helped us finish off our commitment. But he has his own life."

AC/DC regrouped with Johnson in 2018 to record the 2020 album, “Power Up.”
