Angus Young joins Guns N’ Roses onstage at Coachella Festival
After the announcement yesterday that AC/DC‘s new lead singer would be none other than Guns N’ Roses‘ frontman Axl Rose, AC/DC guitarist Angus Young joined GNR onstage during the group’s performance at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival for the songs “Riff Raff” and “Whole Lotta Rosie.”
Just prior to Guns N’ Roses hitting the stage at the Coachella Festival, RollingStone had announced:
“…Just hours before Guns N’ Roses are scheduled to take the stage for their triumphant reunion gig at Coachella, AC/DC formally announced that – before GN’R‘s Not in This Lifetime Tour kicks off – Axl Rose will first join them as vocalist for the remaining dates of their Rock or Bust trek.
“AC/DC will resume their Rock Or Bust World Tour with Axl Rose joining on vocals,” the band announced in a statement Saturday. Rose will take the place of longtime AC/DC vocalist Brian Johnson, who was forced to abruptly quit touring with the group or risk “total hearing loss.”…
The band continued, “The European stadium tour dates begin on May 7 in Lisbon, Portugal and run through June 12 in Aarhus, Denmark as previously announced. Following this European run of dates with AC/DC, Axl Rose will head out on his Guns N’ Roses, ‘Not In This Lifetime‘ Summer Stadium Tour.”
AC/DC added that the 10 U.S. shows postponed by Johnson‘s sudden departure will also be rescheduled with Rose handling vocals.”
