After a grueling but exciting Not In This Lifetime Tour launch in North America with Guns N’ Roses, Axl Rose is now switching back to singing lead for AC/DC, as he did earlier this spring.
One of the coolest parts about their first show on this leg of the Rock Or Bust tour, is that Greensboro, North Carolina was treated to “Live Wire” during the set.
Plus, they didn’t forget the classics!
I’ve got give Axl major props! He’s been on fire this year, singing just as well as he did in 1987. Everyone assumed delays would plague both tours, but we have yet to hear about a single one. In fact, when I attended the Guns N’ Roses show in Pittsburgh, they were onstage early, at around 8:45pm!
Guns N’ Roses, and Axl, have a bright future ahead. The possibilities are endless for them! AC/DC however, might be slowing their train. Angus Young explains, “At this point, I don’t know. We were committed to finishing the [Rock Or Bust] tour. Who knows what I’ll feel after? When you sign on and say, ‘I’m gonna do this and that,’ it’s always good to say at the end of it, ‘I’ve done all I said I would do.'” Bassist Cliff Williams has already announced his retirement, Phil Rudd is swimming in legal issues, and Malcolm Young is now retired as well. Brian Johnson is currently treating his hearing loss, but who knows if he’s up for another round of touring.
