Guns n’ Roses Is Owning ‘Back In Black’ In New Performance
Guns N’ Roses did another AC/DC classic with their performance of “Back In Black” at the Benito Villamarín Stadium on June 7.
The legendary band has added some AC/DC hits to their set list from their June 4 show at Passeio Marítimo de Alges, Oeiras in Portugal, where they performed their own rendition “Walk All Over You.”
The recent appearance marks as the second show of the band for this year as they kicked off their European tour. It was a surprise for the crowd as Axl Rose sings the song just like when he briefly toured with AC/DC in 2016.
On their first stop, they also played “Reckless Life” for the first time since 1993 and “You’re Crazy” for the first time since 1991. They also performed recently-revived Hollywood Rose song “Shadow of Your Love,” while “Civil War” was dedicated to Ukraine and of course classics “Welcome to the Jungle,” “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” “November Rain” and “Paradise City” are also included in their set.
Last year, Guns N’ Roses released two new songs, “Absurd” and “Hard Skool,” featuring Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan, who reunited in 2016. Both songs were played during the first show. Slash told Classic Rock magazine earlier this year that more music would be coming from them:
“There’s new Guns material coming out as we speak, and we’ll probably keep putting it out until the entire record’s worth of stuff is done and then put it out solid.
“It’s cool. I’m enjoying working on the stuff and having a good time doing it.”
