Axl Rose Performs His First Shows With AC/DC In Portugal (Video)
Posted by Steve on May 09 2016

Axl Rose performed with AC/DC for the first time Saturday in Portugal, and aside from the awkwardness of him performing from a sitting position, he was actually pretty good! 

Instead of using Dave Grohl's giant throne like he did for the GNR Coachella shows, he was sitting in what looked like a simple office chair that had been dressed up a bit.  He said it's the same chair, but it was just toned down a bit to fit AC/DC's set-up.  Axl is still recovering from a broken pinky toe. 

Also, the show only started five minutes late...which, in Axl Rose Time counts as two hours early!

Axl started the show by saying to the crowd, "Nice to meet you!"  And even though there was talk of AC/DC fans wanting refunds beforehand, there weren't many complaints.  Axl missed a few cues on the more recent songs, but that's not bad considering how little time he's had to rehearse.

Rose has stated that he is open to continuing with AC/DC after the European shows, but obviously the future sort of depends on what's happening with Brian Johnson.  Angus Young is still insisting Brian wasn't fired.

Check out some clips from the show, as well as Angus, Cliff and Axl commenting on Brian's condition below.
